Were you looking for information about Nitroglycerin? Nitroglycern is a common misspelling of nitroglycerin.
If you have angina (chest pain) caused by coronary artery disease, your healthcare provider may prescribe nitroglycerin (Minitran™, Nitro-Bid®, Nitro-Dur®, Nitrolingual®, NitroMist®, Nitrostat®, Rectiv™). This medication works to treat or prevent angina by relaxing the arteries and veins, improving blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart. It is also used to treat anal fissures. Because there are several nitroglycerin products, dosing guidelines will vary depending on the particular product used. Side effects may include headaches, fainting, and lightheadedness.
