A healthcare provider may prescribe Nitrostat® (nitroglycerin tablets) to relieve chest pain (angina) in adults who have coronary artery disease. This medication can also be used immediately before an activity that is anticipated to cause chest pain. It comes as a tablet that is dissolved under the tongue or between the cheek and gum, and it works by relaxing the veins and arteries to improve blood flow to the heart. Side effects may include headaches, lightheadedness, and dizziness.
