In brief: Meds for CAD
Prevention of cad-events can be either primary (no previous events), or secondary (prior event).
In high risk pts, aspirin, statin therapy might be advantageous in primary prevention. For secondary prevention these meds, along with beta-blockers/acei or arb if prior heart damage can be protective.

In brief: Combo
There are several medications that can decrease the risk of heart disease, including blood pressure medications and medications that help control cholesterol levels.
Aspirin also helpful in some people. Symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider.
