Treat cause: First, the cause will need to be assessed. If due to a heart attack, then medications are needed, and probable coronary angiography.

most cardiac elevation is entirely benign unless as stated above, it occurs in the ER. If not in ER, then PROBABLY reflects African American race (and not heart disease) or simply having large muscle mass/exercising a lot. www.thepmc.org

Needs to be in: Er and there is nothing specific that brings down the enzymes but time. The reflect damage to the cardiac muscle that happens when there is lack of oxygen during a heart attack. The doctors need to help the problem that caused the heart attack and enzymes to rise.
