Treatment for coronary artery disease usually involves a lifestyle change. Sometimes, drugs and certain medical procedures may be necessary. Making a commitment to following a healthy lifestyle is important. This includes quitting smoking, eating healthy, regular exercise, lower body weight, and reduced stress.
Various drugs can be used to treat coronary artery disease, including: cholesterol-modifying medications, a daily aspirin or other blood thinner, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, Ranolazine to help people with chest pain, or Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).
