Nitroglycerin liquid drops

A friend said that it is something new.red 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...

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.
