Why is Nitrostat prescribed?
Glyceryl trinitrate (Nitrostat) is prescribed for the treatment of angina (chest pain) in patients with coronary artery disease. It may also be administered before doing activities that trigger an angina attack, to prevent its occurrence.
What does it do?
Angina (chest pain) is commonly caused by coronary artery disease. It occurs when there is a decrease of blood flow to the heart and you may feel squeezing or tightness in your chest. Glyceryl trinitrate is classified as a vasodilator and it is converted into nitric oxide, which then activates an enzyme causing the widening of the blood vessels to reduce the workload of the heart.
How should I take it?
Nitrostat and its generic equivalents are currently available as 0.3mg sublingual tablets. Each tablet should only be put under the tongue and be allowed to dissolve. It should not be chewed or swallowed.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Nitrostat?
Before taking Glyceryl trinitrate, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had a heart attack, anemia, brain tumors, head injuries, low blood pressure, heart failure, or any heart disease.
Glyceryl trinitrate may cause dizziness when getting up abruptly. When getting up from a lying or sitting position, do it slowly and sit for a few minutes before standing up completely.
Glyceryl trinitrate may cause headaches when taken. Continue taking the medication as necessary.
Limit alcohol intake to reduce occurrence of side effects associated with taking Glyceryl trinitrate.
