In brief: Yes

An anterior myocardial infarction is usually caused by a sudden blockage of one of the three primary heart arteries, the lad.
Emergency treatment consists of a primary angioplasty to restore normal blood flow to the heart muscle. After any heart attack, medications are used to promote proper healing of the damaged heart muscle, to prevent congestive heart failure and future heart attacks.

In brief: Rx anterior MI

The mainstay of treatment of heart attacks including anterior ones are medications.
Almost all heart attack patients are treated with Aspirin (81 mg daily), a beta-blocker to slow the heart, a cholesterol medication, and possibly an ace-inhibitor blood pressure medication. For large anterior heart attacks temporary treatment with blood thinners (warfarin) may also be used.

I agree totally with Dr. Kopes-Kerr, but member55398 must understand for completeness that medications are used as an adjunct to urgent intervention at the time of the MI to save as much heart muscle as possible.
