In brief: They are

Beta blockers are commonly used to treat coronary disease and the weight of the evidence actually is for those patients who have already suffered a heart attack or have congestive heart failure.
However, by corollary and by some evidence, actively ischemic heart disease patients (stable and unstable angina) do better with lower heart rates which result from beta blockers.
