Variant Angina

Treating Variant Angina

Treatment for variant angina includes medication, such as nitroglycerin. Your healthcare provider may also prescribe a longer-acting nitrate or calcium channel blocker to help prevent an attack in the first place. Because smoking can increase the chances that an artery will spasm, a person who smokes should stop.

Important Statistics

Variant angina is rare. It accounts for only about 2 out of every 100 cases. People with the condition are often younger than those with other forms of it.
