Nitroglycerin liquid drops

A friend said that it is something liquid drops you put on your tongue when having a heart attack,instead of the tablets.they also have a longer expiration date than the tablets ## The drops are probably a new form of the more traditional treatment. Here is some additional info about how nitroglycerin work in the event of a heart attack. Nitroglycerin is a chemical that opens up (dilates) arteries and veins and increases blood flow to the heart. During heart attack, Nitroglycerin can be placed under the tongue, where it quickly dissolves and is absorbed into the bloodstream. Nitroglycerin also can be administered via continuous intravenous (IV) infusion; applied to the skin in cream or patch form, where it is slowly absorbed; or administered as short- or long-acting nitrate pill...

Nitroglycerin for pre workout

I took a 0.4 mg. Nitro prior to a 5 min. Extremely high intensity physical fitness test. Once I got to the last station I had burned out with no leg strength and completely exhausted to the point of feeling about to pass out and vomit. It took me 2:13 minutes to go through the first 4 stations. Over 3 minutes to complete the last station, which should only take about 45 seconds. I am out of shape but normally don’t have this happen. My blood pressure was about 148 systolic before taking nitro. I ran this “combat challenge “ about 5 minutes after the nitro. Do you think the nitro had a negative effect and caused the failure. I was also pale as a ghost. ## Has this medication been prescribed for you? And did your doctor tell you to take it before the fitness test? Do you...

substitute for nitroglycerin

I think that I have developed an intolerance to nitro; is there a subsitute for angina? ## Does anyone know of a substitute for a nitro pill that is prescribed for angina? I have not been diagnosed, but when my chest pain begins I would like to try something to get relief. Help. Oh yeah, I do not have insurance and I am unemployed. ## These types of medications are available by prescription only and using them without a proper diagnosis that verifies you have a heart condition can be extremely dangerous. Self-diagnosing is never a good idea. I understand you are saying you are having chest pains and have no insurance, but this is far to dangerous of an area to play around with. You REALLY need to see a doctor. There are no medical professionals on this site and no one, even if they were...

i found some round small pills with the number 4 on one side and nothing on the other.. what is it?

i found a round small pill with the number 4 on one side and nothing on the other do you know what it is..? ## It is a nitroglycerin pill. It is a nitrate that dilates (widens) blood vessels. Nitroglycerin rectal is used to treat moderate to severe pain caused by chronic anal fissures (tears in the skin lining your rectum). ## Tylenol 4 with codeine. I used to get them from my doctor. Tylenol 3 with codeine have a 3 on them ## Don't forget that Dillaudeds also are small white pills from being stamped with 2, a 4, as well as an 8. Those are all instant release dillaudeds. ## It sounds like there are several variations of white round pills imprinted with a 4 on one side... If it's of any help in narrowing down prospective pills, Dilaudid (hydromorphone) is imprinted with M [not in...

nitroglycerin tablets disposal

How can I dispose of expired nitroglycerin pills? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? The current disposal instructions from the FDA say that you should mix them in with some undesirable substance, such as used kitty litter or used coffee grounds, place it into a sealed container, such as a coffee can with lid and then dispose of it in your normal trash. Alternatively, you can take them to a local pharmacy and they will gladly dispose of them for you.

sublingual? ## Are you asking about swallowing a sbulingual tablet? If so, it will still work, you'll still get the medication, however, it will be released much slower than if you had let it dissolve under the tongue as it was designed for. This can be dangerous for some medications, such as Nitroglycerin, which need to work fast in the advent of chest pain/heart failure. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Will zubsolv show in a U/A if i swallow it?

found small brown glass bottle of white unmarked round pills

pills r numbers letters or scores...bottle brown glass 1-1 1\2 inches long white metal lid but too worn to tell what was once there ## Hello, Jen! How are you? From what you've said, I get the impression that they are quite old and with no markings or identifying label, it's going to be difficult to determine what they contain. Years ago, many patent medications were packaged like this, which makes it difficult to even guess if it was a prescription or over the counter product. Does anyone else recognize these? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## I found an old brown glass bottle with a p and a d on the lid. It contains these tiny white tabs with no markings or scores.

If You Are Taking Isosorb Mono And Still Have Trouble Getting A Deep Breath Can Take Nitroglicern To Alleviate Pain

if you are taking isosorb mono and are having trouble taking a deep breath, can you take a nitroglicern pill to alleviate this breathing problem??? ## There aren't any interactions listed between these two medications. However, Nitroglycerin isn't a pain reliever, nor is used to help improve breathing, but rather to treat angina and heart failure. Thus, it will only help if that's what's causing your breathing issue and pain. Learn more Isosorbide Mononitrate details here. Learn more Nitrogylcerin details here. If it is due to your heart and your current dose of Isosorbide isn't helping, then you do need to consult your doctor. If it's something like congestive heart failure, then other treatment may be necessary. Is there anything else I can help with?

Nitroglycerin and others

My sister is taking Nitroglycerin 2.5MG Caps. Simvastatin Tab 40 MG and Isinopril Tab 5MG. Can she drink the teas mention below, without any contraindications with these medications? Slippery Elm, Howthorn Berries, and Phenugreek Tea. ## Has she tried asking her doctor, or pharmacist? Unfortunately, this information may be hard to find, because herbal substances aren't usually checked for interactions, as is done with actual prescription medications. Thus, I can really only suggest she talk to her doctor, first.
