In brief: Many
There are many drugs used to treat CHF but everyone with CHF should be given an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor and a beta blocker as a minimum unless contraindicated or allergic.
Other helpful drugs are a diuretic, an aldosterone antagonist, and a statin. Aspirin too if coronary disease is present.
