Drug Information on Glyceryl Trinitrate

Medication Information: Glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) is prescribed for angina pectoris. Glyceryl trinitrate tablets and sprays have a short-acting effect. This is because the effect of the drug lasts about 20-30 minutes; They are used to quickly relieve angina pain. They can also be used for as long as possible.

Use if you have angina pain, such as before exercise or before climbing stairs. Glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) is also available as a skin patch and ointment. These medications are long-acting and are prescribed to prevent the development of angina pain.

If part of the heart muscle does not receive blood and oxygen, heart pain develops in the heart muscle. This pain is usually caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries of the heart or the build-up of fatty substances in the atheroma, because the narrowing of the arteries makes it difficult for the blood to flow to the heart. GTN works in two ways. Glyceryl trinitrate dilates the body's blood vessels, which reduces the pressure on the heart, making it easier for the heart to pump blood around the body. It also increases blood flow to the heart muscle by dilating the blood vessels of the heart (coronary arteries).
