Common Questions and Answers about How long does nitroglycerin last


Avatar f tn Now that I'm on this medication, the heart rate has decreased a bit, I was at rest at 104 now it's at 90 at night it goes to 77, and the chest pressure I was feeling that is gone. My question is, how long would it takebefore the meds control my blood pressure?
Avatar n tn tanns i'm the same way with medicine terrified of taking medicine. tugar . how long did you have the costochondritis? what exactly did it feel like?
Avatar f tn if we suppose that the patient does *not* faint during a tilt-table-test, how long is each position supposed to last? And the second is relating to the tracing of the syncope event: <--- That's a scan of the tracing, and my attempt to enhance the contrast to actually be able to distinguish the tracing lines (I guess the machine was running out of ink?) left two very visible blotches on both sides of the scan.
1348086 tn?1370786785 They sent her home with nitroglycerin for pain. It had been okay up until about 3 weeks ago when we had to go to the hospital. They sent her home last week and it has been going down ever since. We've decided not to send her to dialysis today because she is doing bad and her blood pressure is 88 over 50. I just need some advice on how to control my excessive anxiety and depression. I am on Cymbalta and Xanax when needed (and has been needed a lot lately).
1209084 tn?1267371006 The surgeon was unable to place stents or relieve either blockage at that time, and they sent me home with three new prescriptions for Metoprolol, Amlodipine, and Niacin. My question is, how common is it for an angioplasty to simply be impossible to accomplish? And can the medication changes I've received clear these blockages and eliminate the need to have an angioplasty at all (with the prerequisite lifestyle changes, which I have started to do)?
Avatar f tn I am now scheduled to see a surgeon for a complete rectal exam prior to going in for surgery. My question is how does one keep the area of the wound (fissure) clean so that it is not so painful, or is taking a drug the only other means of handling this other than surgery. Is there any holistic way of treating this problem?
Avatar n tn I would have to ask how they intend to feed the heart muscle using bypasses when most areas are seriously blocked off. The distal LAD is one common area for a feed, but this is heavily diseased. The report does say how the complete blockage in the MID right coronary artery has bridged with collaterals (natural bypass vessels). I would also have to guess this is happening to many other blockages or he would be very seriously ill due to the left side of the heart being so short of oxygen.
Avatar n tn my copd is bad at moment i had a cup of coffee at 4 30 this morning and i started to eve and i got chesing pain witch sent tinging down my arms and vagunal and legs didnt last long is it anything to worry about
Avatar f tn I was in high school before I was properly fit with glasses. My mother cried when she realized that I had lived that long and hadn't even seen the individual leaves on trees unless I was VERY close to them. I am 67 years old now. I have had high blood pressure since I was 40 years old which is hard to control and some minor cardiac problems. My families have arthritis running rampant through them and I certainly have my share of it.
Avatar f tn Nothing is showing up with all the procedures. Last week we had to take him to the emergency room due to the problem. Blood work indicated Myco. Plas Pneumonia, and elevated liver enzymes. We have him scheduled to see a Dr. next week and Roeder in two weeks, but we are very frustrated about the quality of his life. His pain seems to flare up from anything to no activity to physical work.
Avatar f tn Before the nitroglycerin my heart rate got to 115 no lower than 93 . With nitroglycerin it got to 152 with bp 109/60. How does vasovagal syncope explain everything else. Everything I've read about POTS symptoms sounds dead on for me. I've been struggling for so long and just want to feel better. I have a second opinion but they can't get me in until July. Does this seem like POTS or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Avatar n tn Yes, they are drug-eluting stents (6). Nitroglycerin spray does not resolve the pain right away - last night I had to use it twice, and almost went to the hospital. It is the fear of looking really stupid that kept me from doing so. Anyway, I was able to move my tests up to this week, and am feeling better about that. I strongly suspect, however, that the echo card. and the stress test will again show nothing.
182884 tn?1259316506 He said that it was possible that I had something called Coronary artery Spasms, that it was similiar to a MI in the symptoms and that the fact I had Atypical 'Angina or chest pain and that my last attack was 3 weeks ago, and all my attacks came in a resting situation was suggestive of that diagnosis. He said he would send a note to my dr. mentioning that fact. Also talked about a Calcium Channel blocker and of course using the Nitro.
Avatar n tn Since the chest pain has been reduced so much with the nitro, and the only side effect has been a lowering of my blood pressure that has not bothered me, why not just keep using the medicine and forego further tests unless more symptoms occur? 4. How does elevated homocysteine levels fit into the risk assessment? Are they more/less important than cholesteral ratios (I have read both viewpoints depending on which camp is talking)?
598766 tn?1316995146 Also at my worst I have been physically sick but this hasn't happened (the being sick)for years I think it as something to do with me having learnt over time how far I can push myself before I end up in bed for up to 2 wks as I have in the past, although I still end up ill in bed more often than I'd like, it doesn't last as long as it would have when I used to push myself too far. Does anyone else have these symptoms or anything like them wether diagnosed or not?
Avatar m tn It's 1cm deep now, not sure how long it will take to heal but there was no fistula it just came from within the cheek. The word pilonidal cyst is used a lot and I don't think that is what this is... perianal cyst? I'm not sure. It's been drained twice so you'd hope there was nothing left in the cheek and it'll heal up forever. Does anyone have an advice for me? Diet, cleansing tips, packing? I'm currently on the sorbisan ribbon as it's small but has anyone tried aquaform?
645800 tn?1466864555 Just got home from day two of IVSM, but what a night I had last night. At 6PM last night I had checked my glucose and it was 319 so I figured I better wait a while before I had dinner. At 11PM I a6te my dinner and almost immediately after eating I had either a mild heart attack or angina occurring.
Avatar f tn yes u r eating a few things u should avoid with, chocolates,wine...and any citrus juices. How long since u quit smoking?...and congratulations on quiting...good for u!!

Avatar f tn Chest pain from level 1 to 10 1 being minor 10 feeling like a heart attack 1 is frequent nearly every day, tolerable No problem to deal with, annoyance, can apply pressure Anything over 4-5 escalates and peaks Sometimes quickly, if quickly pain normally is not higher than an 6-7 This is more common Dissapates 'usually' quickly and is over with for the day On occasion Im not aware of pain until it starts at a 5 or above Pain slowly escalates and peaks from 7-10 Pain disapates but s
967168 tn?1477588089 I thouth I found a great cardiologist who understood Dysautonomia and even referred me to Vanderbilt so I can have more testing since it wasn't his expertise. Boy was I wrong, when push came to shove and I gave him my RFC form and restrictions/limitations about everything I'm going through his response was - I can't sign this - there is no reason with these conditions why you shouldn't be able to work or be medically "disabled" How do I get a doctor to understand?
Avatar n tn How high and for how long do cholesterol levels have to be elevated to do any artery damage? My husband is a 39 year old white male. His total cholesterol level for the past 12 years or so has been 240 or greater. His last cholesterol level test was in January of 2000 and fasting total was 307, HDL was 50, LDL was almost 200 and triglycerides were 291. There have been times when his cholesterol could not be calculated because of triglyceride levels being in excess of 400.
Avatar n tn After getting used to it (which took a while, I'm not sure how long, but maybe a month or even two) I have had no problems EXCEPT when I was sent 100mg tabs and told to split them and take them 50mg twice a day. When I did that I had general sleepiness and dizziness when laying down or getting up. I solved that problem by not splitting the tablet and taking 100mg at bedtime.
1006065 tn?1251482269 Is it common for a person's blood pressure to elevate such as mine after discontinuing Fentanyl and, if so, how long do these symptoms usually last until the blood pressure issue resolves itself? Is it too soon to expect relief or am I an unusual case and perhaps something is wrong? Will it resolve itself without assistance and, if not, what might that assistance be? I feel that I should be much better at this point in time and so does my doctor.
712042 tn?1254572809 I know this dysfunction well and like many other long term diagnoses this requires management. HUGE lifestyle changes. Emory and similar researchers do not know why this happens, if it is hereditary, viral or anything else at this point. October 2009: This condition is getting progressively worse. Since Aug.1st 2009 I have had increasing episodes of chest tightening, vasospasm and chest pain only relieved by up to two sprays of nitro.
1019316 tn?1262618659 Today was my second day off of them and I know the w/d can't last long. But the question I want to ask is, I found one of my tramadol today that was left on a dresser and took it. Will taking this tramadol post pone my withdrawal symptoms? Will I have to feel them for 3 days all over again? Like, will it be back to the way I felt yesterday tomorrow when I wake up? Will I have to start the 3 days of withdrawing all over again?
Avatar n tn I have bouts of severe upper right quadrant pain radiating below my scapula that began in the early 80"s after my last child was born and I was in my late 20's; I'm 55. Anticholinergics helped, as did H2 blockers then omiprizole,until the late 90's. Pain & gastritis were also aggravated by a med for trigeminal/occipital neuralgia--which was dc'd. In the late 90's: I failed two HIDA with CCK scans & my gallbladder was removed, without improvement.
Avatar m tn My dilemma is this, the insurance co I am with says that I am not disabled and cut me off from benefits last year, I am now broke and am faced with a decision whether to return to work and give up on my insurance claim or try to fight them and get what I believe is entitled to me. My occupation is Gas Well Tester and I work in the Canadian north on oil and gas wells in a very strenuous and demanding atmosphere.
Avatar n tn Hello Kathy, I am sorry to hear about your recent bout with chest pain. 1. Can you explain more about the use of nitro patch for other causes? Nitro can help some forms of esophageal spasm. Nitro also helps many forms of cardiac chest pain -- believe it or not, all chests pains are not created equally. The stents you have were placed to treat blockages in major epicardial vessels.
Avatar n tn Is this a high number of leads? Generally, how long after a heart attack does an ecg remain abnormal? Thanks very much for your help.
