In brief: Several

Mainly vasodilators such as ace inhibitors or angiogtension receptor blockers (arb's), low dose beta blockers, occasionally inotropes such as digoxin, and sometimes vasodilators like calcium channel blockers like Nifedipine or amlodipine or nitrates.
In severe cases, the effective short term treatments are left ventricular assist devices, and in life threatening cases, heart transplantation.
