Nitroglycerin

Drug Info for nitroglycerin

Nitroglycerin transdermal patches are used to prevent episodes of angina (chest pain) in people who have coronary artery disease (narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). Nitroglycerin transdermal patches can only be used to prevent attacks of angina; they cannot be used to treat an attack of angina once it has begun. Nitroglycerin is in a class of medications called vasodilators. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so that the heart does not need to work as hard and therefore does not need as much oxygen.

Nitroglycerin is a prescription-only nitrate that is taken to treat or prevent the symptoms associated with angina including tightness, pain and pressure in the chest. Nitroglycerin works by widening the blood vessels to make blood flow easily.

Missed dose: Transdermal routeIf you forget to wear or change a patch, put one on as soon as you can. If it is almost time to put on your next patch, wait until then to apply a new patch and skip the one you missed. Do not apply extra patches to make up for a missed dose.

Transdermal routeStore the patches at room temperature in a closed container, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.

Transdermal routePut on a new patch if the old one has fallen off and cannot be reapplied.
