In brief: More than one

In general, when medications are prescribed appropriately, the risk of mi or other adverse effect is low compared with the expected benefit.
However sometimes they do happen. Recently there has been a lot of attention on 2 common classes of medication and their risk for negative cardiac effects: decongestants (many "sinus" meds) & nsaids (such as ibuprofen, Naproxen and their name brand versions).
