Answer

The goals of pharmacotherapy are to reduce morbidity and prevent complications. Agents used in the management of Wellens syndrome include salicylates, antihypertensive drugs, antianginal drugs, antiplatelet drugs, analgesics, low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs), antiarrhythmic drugs, and anticoagulants.
