Nitro-Bid Drug Information

Available by prescription only, Nitro-Bid® (nitroglycerin ointment) is a drug approved for preventing episodes of chest pain (angina) in people with coronary heart disease. It works by relaxing the arteries and blood vessels to improve blood flow to the heart.
 
Nitro-Bid comes in the form of an ointment that is applied to the skin once in the morning and again six hours later. It is important that you have at least a 10- to 12-hour break from this medicine each day to prevent your body from becoming accustomed to its effects. If you used this product around-the-clock, it would become ineffective within 24 hours.
 
Although the drug is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using Nitro-Bid, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have low blood pressure or any allergies.
