How Nitroglycerin works

Nitroglycerin causes relaxation of smooth muscles within blood vessels which leads to relaxation and widening of blood vessels. This improves blood supply to the heart muscles. As a result, it helps to relieve chest pain and blood pressure.

Common side effects of Nitroglycerin

  • throbbing headache
  • spinning sensation
  • fall in blood pressure when seated or standing up
  • dizziness, drowsiness
  • lack of energy

  • In case of accidental overdosage
  • If you experience worsening of angina symptoms such as chest pain
  • If you experience signs of hypoxaemia (low levels of oxygen in blood) (difficulty breathing, increased rate of breathing)
  • If you experience signs of methemoglobinemia (breathing problems, tiredness, headache)
  • If you experience difficulty breathing, bluish discolouration of the lips, fingers or toes (cyanosis)
  • If you experience rapid or slowed heartbeat
  • If you experience blindness in one eye
  • If you experience cerebral ischaemia (impaired blood flow to brain) which may cause weakness in one leg or arm, or weakness in one entire side of the body

Health Tips for Nitroglycerin

  • Adopt a balanced diet that is low in saturated fats, cholesterol and sodium. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins in your meals
  • High doses of caffeine can increase heart rate and blood pressure, potentially triggering angina in some individuals. Moderation is key if you consume caffeinated beverages
