Nitrol Drug Information
Nitrol Ointment Overview
Nitroglycerin ointment is used to prevent chest pain (angina) in people with a certain heart condition (coronary artery disease). Nitrol Ointment belongs to a class of drugs known as nitrates. Angina occurs when the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. Nitrol Ointment works by relaxing and widening blood vessels so blood can flow more easily to the heart. Nitrol Ointment will not relieve chest pain once it occurs. It is also not intended to be used just before physical activities (such as exercise, sexual activity) to prevent chest pain. Other medications may be needed in these situations. Consult your doctor for more details.
