Nitrostat contains the generic ingredient nitroglycerin, which belongs to the class of drugs called vasodilators. Nitrostat tablets are dissolved under the tongue and taken at the first sign of chest pain during an angina attack.
Doctors prescribe Nitrostat to relieve and prevent acute angina attacks. Angina is chest pain, discomfort, or tightness that occurs when an area of the heart muscle is not receiving enough oxygen-rich blood.
Nitrostat works by relaxing blood vessels and increasing the blood and oxygen supply to the heart.
Do not swallow Nitrostat. Dissolve the tablet under your tongue or in your mouth. The usual adult dose is one tablet taken sublingually when you first feel chest pain. If the pain still persists after three tablets in 15 minutes, seek medical help.
These may not be all the side effects of Nitrostat 0.6mg.
Do not take Nitrostat in combination with drugs for pulmonary hypertension, like riociguat or drugs for erectile dysfunction, like Viagra. Do not take Nitrostat if you have had a very recent heart attack, increased pressure in the head or severe anemia.
Certain drugs should not be taken with Nitrostat. Tell you doctor if you are taking drugs like water pills, blood thinners, aspirin or medicines for psychiatric illnesses. Before taking Nitrostat, tell you doctor if you have low blood pressure.
Keep at room temperature, safely out of the reach of children. It is important to keep Nitrostat in the original glass container and recap tightly after you use it.
Angina is a medical term for chest pain or discomfort that happens when part of your heart does not get enough blood. Angina feels like a pressing or squeezing pain, usually in your chest under the breastbone. Sometimes you can feel it in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaws, or back. Other symptoms include nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating and dizziness. Unlike a heart attack that lasts more than 30 minutes and damages the heart, angina usually lasts a few minutes and does not damage the heart. There are several tests your doctor may order to help confirm whether you have angina like an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), a stress test where you are monitored while exercising on a treadmill or a stationary bicycle, an echocardiogram (uses sound waves to make image of your heart), chest X-ray, blood tests or a CT scan, which takes pictures to see if your heart is enlarged or the heart’s arteries are narrowed.
