Nitrostat pill is vasodilator special for coronary heart disease and its action only for few minutes.It use for direct absorbe through mouth membrane,If swallowing It will cut most of its strenght.Only dangerous for high dosage is drop down the blood pressure suddenly.If after few minutes nothing happen the danger is over. Answered by Loren Lover 2 years ago.

Well, I assume you are not having chest pain... because if you were given a prescription for Nitrostat, you would know not to swallow it. Anyway, Nitrostat can cause dizziness, blurred vision, fainting, slow hear rate, headache. Answered by Olin Slechta 2 years ago.

Probably not too much effect from swallowing. They are designed to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream by dissolving under your tongue Nitroglycerin is a potent vasodilator, so the symptoms are flushing, dizziness, headache and nausea. Answered by Jude Feliciano 2 years ago.

Seen a couple of questions regarding nitrostat with possible overdose symptoms.?
I am a heart patient and take isosorbide mononitrate to release nitro continually. In the event of possible cardiac arrest, would nitrostat be overly enhanced, and safe to take in combination? Asked by Alethia Fauber 2 years ago.

I can assure you that if you were unfortunate enough to have a cardiac arrest nitrostat (nitroglycerine), with its effect of dropping an already low blood pressure, would be the very last thing that doctors would dream of using. They would be too busy considering using adrenaline to bring the blood pressure up again. If you are thinking about an episode of angina, where the artery has not yet blocked completely but is not allowing a full blood flow, then I suggest you talk to your doctor. He may feel a small dose of nitroglycerine is appropriate and recommend the dose. Answered by Shayna Pochintesta 2 years ago.


What is nitrostat it is a kind of pill thats all i know?
i found it in my new home i was wondering what it is and what it does Asked by Terry Rainbott 2 years ago.

Preventing or relieving a sudden attack of angina (chest pain) caused by heart disease. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. Nitrostat is a nitrate. It works by dilating (widening) blood vessels. Chest pain occurs when the heart needs more oxygen than it can get. Dilating blood vessels allows blood to flow more easily. This reduces the heart's workload and the amount of oxygen needed by the heart. Answered by Leandra Capulong 2 years ago.

A nitrostat patch.....?
a. would aid in the treatment of high blood pressure b. would show decreased effects with time (tolerance) c. contains isosorbide mononitrate d. has a duration of action of five days Asked by Walter Hyer 2 years ago.

Nitro patches show decreased effects over time when worn continuously. So, patients generally wear them for 12-14 hours at a time, then off for 10-12 hours to negate this effect. If you read the prescribing info leaflet (should be able to find this easly if you Google it) it should verify this. So, answer is B. Answered by Colette Spizzirri 2 years ago.

I agree, the answer is b, however it would aid in the treatment of high blood pressure also. Answered by Rosenda Rosie 2 years ago.

Can anybody tell me my aunt takes NITROSTAT 0.4MG TABS 25'S she also has dentures its hard to put tablet under her tongue to make tablet dissolve, so it takes about 3 tablets to get relief.Her Dr gives 25 per RX. Using the above issues can the dr provided more tablets like 50-75 - She has heart failure on lot meds that keep her mouth very dry. Would dr have any problem adding more tablets ? Thank you Answered by Violeta Reinier 2 years ago.

and reaction and a larger quantity would cover it up and lead to a potentially risky situation. i disagree with this comment. People with heart failure is it well know many of the heart meds lead to dry mouth.This is why many heart failure patients end up losing their teeth. If your aunt is having problems with nitro working due to dentures, I would submit she explain to the dr, with no dentures in her mouth, she can make one tablet work, but only encounters problems, when the dentures are in her mouth. I do not know how you can cover up a heart problem.Unless she is using 25 tablets a day, she would have serious problems. This sounds more like not being able to put the tablet in the correct area, where it can make contact and work as it would without the dentures is my take on this. You cannot cover up chest pain. Answered by Dina Engblom 2 years ago.

She'll have to take this up with the doctor. Perhaps he can do something for dry mouth. That cannot be very comfortable, and if she's dehydrated than can enhance the hypotensive effects of the Nitrostat. Your aunt can ask the doctor if she can "cheek" the tablet, if that would be easier for her. The usual Rx is 25 tablets - which is just as well, as doc needs to know your aunt's status and reaction and a larger quantity would cover it up and lead to a potentially risky situation. Hope that helps. Good health. Answered by Elayne Matty 2 years ago.

I do not understand why dentures would interfere with sub-lingual (tongue delivery) of nitro? Please explain why. Perhaps a sip of water prior to nitro would help. Bucchal or "cheeking" would have the same delivery affect. But please verify with a pharmacist. How long does it take her to use the 25 pills given at a time? You did not mention that either since that seems to be your main concern! Remember that nitro looses effect when not stored properly! Either you are not storing nitro properly and effectiveness is being lost or your aunt is sicker than the doc thinks! I wish your family health and wellness. Answered by Yuk Occhipinti 2 years ago.

My mom takes nitrostat for chest pain she received a refill with 1 remaining the nurse at dr's office says?
It is important not to take this medication too often as it can cause a "tolerance" Do you think she enjoys having chest pain ? What else would you suggest , she do ignore the pain ? I never heard anybody say do not take nitro for heart pain,with your advice she will be dead. Asked by Taryn Milligan 2 years ago.

My mom takes nitrostat for chest pain she received a refill with 1 remaining the nurse at dr's office says her 25 tablets of nitrostat must last her 30 days and cannot be refilled early.Even though she suffers from serve heart failure and she has bouts of chest pain ,she uses her bottle up before 30 days. Can a dr's office tell a patient they are allowed to some bouts of chest pain or otherwise they sound like they want to accuse her abuse of this medication for her chest pains. She cannot switch her chest pain on and off at will. What should my mom do for she will run out before 30 days and most likely she will end up in the ER when the dr refuses to refill her heart medication. She normally is 2 1/2 to 3 weeks in between refills. 90"% of heart muscle is dead. What should we do ? Answered by Dominica Kadelak 2 years ago.

If at all possible, she should consider changing doctors...hers is apparently not concerned with her welfare if he's restricting her medicine like this. She also should talk to the pharmacist where she gets her prescription when it gets close to running out (when she's down to about 5 or 6 pills) and see if they will let her buy an "emergency supply"; sometimes they will...or they will call the doctor and get him to authorize another refill for her until she can go back to the doctor. If she can't change doctors, she needs to really talk to her doctor and explain to him how much trouble she has with chest pain. He needs to understand how bad the problem is. Also, and I'm sure she knows this, if he has her on any special diet or exercise regimen, she needs to do her best to follow it...this may help improve her condition somewhat; I know there's not alot that can be done with her heart being in such bad shape, but she needs to follow his directions to the best of her ability. Answered by Earlean Mouldin 2 years ago.

Its clear you don't understand how nitro works. Nitro works by thinning the blood. It is through this that eases the pain in the heart. Chest pain is caused by your heart not being "happy". It is your heart's way of telling you something is wrong. While chest pain can, and often is serious, it is not always a "major event". The previous poster is correct, your body builds a tolerance to nitro. Further, since it is a blood thinner it can also complicate other matters. If she has heart failure, nitro isn't going to help in the long term. You need to face reality that CHF is a fatal disease and most medications are for comfort. There is a prescription med shortage and nitro is one of the drugs that is in short supply. If she experiences chest discomfort you need to call 911. Whether she has nitro or not the ALS crew can give her nitro. Answered by James Janousek 2 years ago.

She is still not stabilized on the nitroglycerin. So she needs to see the doctor for pills in the same class that will help her. It's the right drug, but she is still not stable. Further, does she have other causes of chest pain that are untreated? GERD can simulate chest pain, and is treated differently. Answered by Era Hissong 2 years ago.

It is important not to take this medication too often as it can cause a "tollerance" effect where the medication no longer assists. She needs to discuss a different form of medication if she is needing this medication every day or multiple times every day. If she has high blood pressure this is even more of a concern. Answered by Marhta Hagemann 2 years ago.

I never heard anybody say do not take nitro for heart pain,with your advice she will be dead. Asked by Lisandra Frommer 2 years ago.

My mom takes nitrostat for chest pain she received a refill with 1 remaining the nurse at dr's office says her 25 tablets of nitrostat must last her 30 days and cannot be refilled early.Even though she suffers from serve heart failure and she has bouts of chest pain ,she uses her bottle up before 30 days. Can a dr's office tell a patient they are allowed to some bouts of chest pain or otherwise they sound like they want to accuse her abuse of this medication for her chest pains. She cannot switch her chest pain on and off at will. What should my mom do for she will run out before 30 days and most likely she will end up in the ER when the dr refuses to refill her heart medication. She normally is 2 1/2 to 3 weeks in between refills. 90"% of heart muscle is dead. What should we do ? Answered by Florance Kerekes 2 years ago.

If at all possible, she should consider changing doctors...hers is apparently not concerned with her welfare if he's restricting her medicine like this. She also should talk to the pharmacist where she gets her prescription when it gets close to running out (when she's down to about 5 or 6 pills) and see if they will let her buy an "emergency supply"; sometimes they will...or they will call the doctor and get him to authorize another refill for her until she can go back to the doctor. If she can't change doctors, she needs to really talk to her doctor and explain to him how much trouble she has with chest pain. He needs to understand how bad the problem is. Also, and I'm sure she knows this, if he has her on any special diet or exercise regimen, she needs to do her best to follow it...this may help improve her condition somewhat; I know there's not alot that can be done with her heart being in such bad shape, but she needs to follow his directions to the best of her ability. Answered by Chandra Matus 2 years ago.

Its clear you don't understand how nitro works. Nitro works by thinning the blood. It is through this that eases the pain in the heart. Chest pain is caused by your heart not being "happy". It is your heart's way of telling you something is wrong. While chest pain can, and often is serious, it is not always a "major event". The previous poster is correct, your body builds a tolerance to nitro. Further, since it is a blood thinner it can also complicate other matters. If she has heart failure, nitro isn't going to help in the long term. You need to face reality that CHF is a fatal disease and most medications are for comfort. There is a prescription med shortage and nitro is one of the drugs that is in short supply. If she experiences chest discomfort you need to call 911. Whether she has nitro or not the ALS crew can give her nitro. Answered by Natasha Kravs 2 years ago.

She is still not stabilized on the nitroglycerin. So she needs to see the doctor for pills in the same class that will help her. It's the right drug, but she is still not stable. Further, does she have other causes of chest pain that are untreated? GERD can simulate chest pain, and is treated differently. Answered by Mellie Mann 2 years ago.

It is important not to take this medication too often as it can cause a "tollerance" effect where the medication no longer assists. She needs to discuss a different form of medication if she is needing this medication every day or multiple times every day. If she has high blood pressure this is even more of a concern.

Seen a couple of questions regarding nitrostat with possible overdose symptoms.?
I am a heart patient and take isosorbide mononitrate to release nitro continually. In the event of possible cardiac arrest, would nitrostat be overly enhanced, and safe to take in combination? Asked by Phyllis Tolosa 2 years ago.

I can assure you that if you were unfortunate enough to have a cardiac arrest nitrostat (nitroglycerine), with its effect of dropping an already low blood pressure, would be the very last thing that doctors would dream of using. They would be too busy considering using adrenaline to bring the blood pressure up again. If you are thinking about an episode of angina, where the artery has not yet blocked completely but is not allowing a full blood flow, then I suggest you talk to your doctor. He may feel a small dose of nitroglycerine is appropriate and recommend the dose. Answered by Ferdinand Pentz 2 years ago.

Preventing or relieving a sudden attack of angina (chest pain) caused by heart disease. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. Nitrostat is a nitrate.

A nitrostat patch.....?
a. would aid in the treatment of high blood pressure b. would show decreased effects with time (tolerance) c. contains isosorbide mononitrate d. has a duration of action of five days Asked by Willian Shawe 2 years ago.

Nitro patches show decreased effects over time when worn continuously. So, patients generally wear them for 12-14 hours at a time, then off for 10-12 hours to negate this effect. If you read the prescribing info leaflet (should be able to find this easly if you Google it) it should verify this. So, answer is B. Answered by Bianca Reiser 2 years ago.

I agree, the answer is b, however it would aid in the treatment of high blood pressure also. Answered by Isis Dziewanowski 2 years ago.

and reaction and a larger quantity would cover it up and lead to a potentially risky situation. i disagree with this comment. People with heart failure is it well know many of the heart meds lead to dry mouth.This is why many heart failure patients end up losing their teeth. If your aunt is having problems with nitro working due to dentures, I would submit she explain to the dr, with no dentures in her mouth, she can make one tablet work, but only encounters problems, when the dentures are in her mouth. I do not know how you can cover up a heart problem.Unless she is using 25 tablets a day, she would have serious problems. This sounds more like not being able to put the tablet in the correct area, where it can make contact and work as it would without the dentures is my take on this. You cannot cover up chest pain. Answered by Lillian Freelove 2 years ago.

She'll have to take this up with the doctor. Perhaps he can do something for dry mouth. That cannot be very comfortable, and if she's dehydrated than can enhance the hypotensive effects of the Nitrostat. Your aunt can ask the doctor if she can "cheek" the tablet, if that would be easier for her. The usual Rx is 25 tablets - which is just as well, as doc needs to know your aunt's status and reaction and a larger quantity would cover it up and lead to a potentially risky situation. Hope that helps. Good health. Answered by Lamar Brickel 2 years ago.

I do not understand why dentures would interfere with sub-lingual (tongue delivery) of nitro? Please explain why. Perhaps a sip of water prior to nitro would help. Bucchal or "cheeking" would have the same delivery affect. But please verify with a pharmacist. How long does it take her to use the 25 pills given at a time? You did not mention that either since that seems to be your main concern! Remember that nitro looses effect when not stored properly! Either you are not storing nitro properly and effectiveness is being lost or your aunt is sicker than the doc thinks! I wish your family health and wellness. Answered by Ilana Zwicker 2 years ago.

If your aunt is having problems with nitro working due to dentures, I would submit she explain to the dr, with no dentures in her mouth, she can make one tablet work, but only encounters problems, when the dentures are in her mouth. I do not know how you can cover up a heart problem.Unless she is using 25 tablets a day, she would have serious problems. This sounds more like not being able to put the tablet in the correct area, where it can make contact and work as it would without the dentures is my take on this. You cannot cover up chest pain. Answered by Marya Bilbro 2 years ago.

She'll have to take this up with the doctor. Perhaps he can do something for dry mouth. That cannot be very comfortable, and if she's dehydrated than can enhance the hypotensive effects of the Nitrostat. Your aunt can ask the doctor if she can "cheek" the tablet, if that would be easier for her. The usual Rx is 25 tablets - which is just as well, as doc needs to know your aunt's status and reaction and a larger quantity would cover it up and lead to a potentially risky situation. Hope that helps. Good health. Answered by Nova Janovsek 2 years ago.

I do not understand why dentures would interfere with sub-lingual (tongue delivery) of nitro? Please explain why. Perhaps a sip of water prior to nitro would help. Bucchal or "cheeking" would have the same delivery affect. But please verify with a pharmacist. How long does it take her to use the 25 pills given at a time? You did not mention that either since that seems to be your main concern! Remember that nitro looses effect when not stored properly! Either you are not storing nitro properly and effectiveness is being lost or your aunt is sicker than the doc thinks! I wish your family health and wellness. Answered by Gilberte Susla 2 years ago.

My mom takes nitrostat for chest pain she received a refill with 1 remaining the nurse at dr's office says?
It is important not to take this medication too often as it can cause a "tolerance" Do you think she enjoys having chest pain ? What else would you suggest , she do ignore the pain ? I never heard anybody say do not take nitro for heart pain,with your advice she will be dead. Asked by Mitzie Ackroyd 2 years ago.

My mom takes nitrostat for chest pain she received a refill with 1 remaining the nurse at dr's office says her 25 tablets of nitrostat must last her 30 days and cannot be refilled early.Even though she suffers from serve heart failure and she has bouts of chest pain ,she uses her bottle up before 30 days. Can a dr's office tell a patient they are allowed to some bouts of chest pain or otherwise they sound like they want to accuse her abuse of this medication for her chest pains. She cannot switch her chest pain on and off at will. What should my mom do for she will run out before 30 days and most likely she will end up in the ER when the dr refuses to refill her heart medication. She normally is 2 1/2 to 3 weeks in between refills. 90"% of heart muscle is dead. What should we do ? Answered by Asley Iler 2 years ago.

If at all possible, she should consider changing doctors...hers is apparently not concerned with her welfare if he's restricting her medicine like this. She also should talk to the pharmacist where she gets her prescription when it gets close to running out (when she's down to about 5 or 6 pills) and see if they will let her buy an "emergency supply"; sometimes they will...or they will call the doctor and get him to authorize another refill for her until she can go back to the doctor. If she can't change doctors, she needs to really talk to her doctor and explain to him how much trouble she has with chest pain. He needs to understand how bad the problem is. Also, and I'm sure she knows this, if he has her on any special diet or exercise regimen, she needs to do her best to follow it...this may help improve her condition somewhat; I know there's not alot that can be done with her heart being in such bad shape, but she needs to follow his directions to the best of her ability. Answered by Caron Roenigk 2 years ago.

Its clear you don't understand how nitro works. Nitro works by thinning the blood. It is through this that eases the pain in the heart. Chest pain is caused by your heart not being "happy". It is your heart's way of telling you something is wrong. While chest pain can, and often is serious, it is not always a "major event". The previous poster is correct, your body builds a tolerance to nitro. Further, since it is a blood thinner it can also complicate other matters. If she has heart failure, nitro isn't going to help in the long term. You need to face reality that CHF is a fatal disease and most medications are for comfort. There is a prescription med shortage and nitro is one of the drugs that is in short supply. If she experiences chest discomfort you need to call 911. Whether she has nitro or not the ALS crew can give her nitro. Answered by Tobie Cunico 2 years ago.

She is still not stabilized on the nitroglycerin. So she needs to see the doctor for pills in the same class that will help her. It's the right drug, but she is still not stable. Further, does she have other causes of chest pain that are untreated? GERD can simulate chest pain, and is treated differently. Answered by Debbie Radler 2 years ago.

It is important not to take this medication too often as it can cause a "tollerance" effect where the medication no longer assists. She needs to discuss a different form of medication if she is needing this medication every day or multiple times every day. If she has high blood pressure this is even more of a concern.
