More than one: In general, when medications are prescribed appropriately, the risk of mi or other adverse effect is low compared with the expected benefit. However sometimes they do happen. Recently there has been a lot of attention on 2 common classes of medication and their risk for negative cardiac effects: decongestants (many "sinus" meds) & nsaids (such as ibuprofen, Naproxen and their name brand versions).
