Nitroglycerin has been around for a while as an ingredient in dynamite and more recently as a medication for its vasodilator properties. Recently studies have shown that it can be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction in men. In order to get the most out of your nitroglycerin gel, it's important to follow the directions on your prescription and use this medication properly. In this article, we'll give you some tips on how to apply nitroglycerin gel and some information on where to buy it.
Nitro-Bid (nitroglycerin) ointment helps to relieve pain and itching from hemorrhoids. It works by relaxing the muscles in your rectal area and reduces pressure inside the anus.
The body breaks nitroglycerin down into nitric oxide, which causes the smooth muscle within your blood vessels to relax. This results in your arteries and veins opening up to let more blood pass through. Nitroglycerin is used to prevent chest pain called angina in people with a certain heart condition known as coronary artery disease. It does not treat chest pain that has already started or relieve chest pain once it has already begun.
If you have angina, it's important to take nitroglycerin at least 30 minutes before activities that may increase your risk for chest pain such as exercise and sexual activity. It's also important to not stop taking nitroglycerin without talking with your doctor.
Before using nitroglycerin, tell your doctor and pharmacist about all of your medical conditions, including low blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and any other heart problems you have. Also, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
