Olanzapine: The drug is considered dangerous in the elderly. 40yrs old generally isn't considered elderly. Would discuss with internist/cardiologist whether your situation is ok for that drug. It does have some risks in the face of CAD which depend on status.

Likely: It is not treatment for the heart, and the specific condition is likely to benefit. Like all medications there are risks and benefits that must be considered. There are some infrequent cardiac complications with this drug.
