Is propranolol ER 80 mg better for cad, artery blockage, and angina than 5 mg bystolic (nebivolol). Generally, which other medicine is best for those?

In brief: Beta blockers

Propranalol and bystolic (nebivolol) are beta blockers-they act by blocking beta receptors.
They act by decreasing the workload of the heart, slowing the heart rate & decreasing blood pressure. With coronary disease these medications are relatively similar. They are great for lowering the work load of the heart therby helping with CAD but with angina a calcium channel blocker or nitrates are usually better.

In brief: Not likely

Beta blockers is the type of drug dosage to control blood pressure and pulse rate.
These and others are effective. See your plan and pharmacist for price and other drug interactions. Most pharmacies will have a data sheet on actions and reactions.
