Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Sorry to hear this...
It is not always due to the drugs / there could be other reasons, which may have to be looked into...You may need a few investigations...
Some drugs like beta-blocker or clopidogrel have been proved to protect for at least one year /some like aspirin for life.
Do not stop any medicine without consulting your doctor. Even if the doctor decides to stop, drugs like beta-blockers need to be tapered over a period of time and should not be stopped suddenly.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
