There aren't any medications we would administer to promote clot dissolution but diluting the urine by encouraging fluid intake plus the tincture of time should break up the clot which then is passed. The cause of the clot needs to be determined and treated in order to prevent the clot from enlarging instead or new clots from forming. What was your son told about the clot's etiology?
