Avatar m tn Does Nitroglycerin apart from relieving symptom of CAD also relieves symptoms of Acid Reflux?
Avatar f tn Hi.. I have external hemorrhoids for over 10 years. Then lately, i also discovered i have internal. But i always got to push it back. Does anyone have the same problem? Im planning to visit a surgeon but im afraid that in the surgery they will interfere the vagina.. Like what i saw on med videos..
Avatar n tn I was diagnose with clogged arteries over a year ago. I even had a stent put in because one of my arteries was ecluded. I still had stable angina every time I did some for of cardio activity or is I ate something with sodium. I started using Nitroglycerin patches and even have the pills just in case my angina episode occurs. I had a date and I read online that you can't take viagra and any nitrates cause it can drop your blood pressure really low.
572651 tn?1530999357 My bp is also low - averages 90/60 but the nitro is for the angina which is not bp related. I find it really knocks me out for a while after I get over the headache ..... If my pain is really MS related and not cardio related, I'm wondering what the nitro is really doing.............
Avatar m tn Having hemorrhoids flare up is always a terrible experience. Before you start trying and employing all means and remedies to address piles, it is vital to understand how and why hemorrhoids appear in the first place. Only by then, could you have the "real"" treatment for hemroids. I have written a blog http://makehemorrhoidsgoaway.com/ sharing some information on hemorrhoids distress.
Avatar m tn These treatments reduce the blood supply to the hemorrhoids so that they shrink or go away. For anal fissure a 0.2% nitroglycerin cream can reduce the pressure in the internal anal muscle and allow the fissure to heal. Use of calcium channel blockers may help healing by reducing the pressure in the internal anal sphincter. Consult a surgeon and do keep us posted on how you are doing. Take care and kind regards!

Avatar m tn Nitrate Medications for heart disease - The combination of vitamin C with nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, or isosorbide mononitrate reduces the occurrence of nitrate tolerance. Nitrate tolerance is when the body builds up a tolerance to the medicine so that it no longer has its desired effect. People taking nitrate-containing medications generally follow a 12 hours on, 12 hours off schedule to avoid this tolerance.
Avatar n tn Chest pressure...rupture feeling in chest.
Avatar m tn What would happen if you rubbed pure nitroglycerin on your skin? I'd like to know the symptoms on and below the skin. I know that nitroglycerin is used for anginas, but I also know that it's generally mixed with something else, so I'm curious about how well pure nitroglycerin would work and what it would do. And if you had a vial of pure nitroglycerin, what could you mix it with to be able to use it as ointment?
Avatar f tn Since then I have been to the doctor about 4 times as I have found no relief in the creams or any of the recommended treatment. The latest thing he put me on was a nitroglycerin ointment. This has help with the fissure (I know longer have pain when using the restroom) but I have now developed a large, red, swollen bump on the left side of my butt cheek on the inside. It goes down to the actual opening but it does not feel like my actual anus is the source of pain.

Avatar f tn If you miss a dose of Nitroglycerin Patch, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once. When used for long periods of time without a break, some people develop a physical need to continue taking Nitroglycerin Patch. This is known as physical DEPENDENCE. Do not suddenly stop taking Nitroglycerin Patch without your doctor's approval.

Avatar m tn m a heart patient myself, but no nitroglycerin for me.
Avatar n tn Hemorrhoids frustration Minimum social interaction
Avatar f tn Hemorrhoids, stiff neck.
Avatar n tn I also am using Nitroglycerin (sub-lingual) for chest pain. I have wide open coronary arteries by cardiac cath and no EKG abnormalities. But my chest pain responds to the nitro. Lately I have been having chest pain when I inhale only and this seems to be happening when I go outside in the cold weather. Could this pain be related to my COPD reacting to this recent cold weather? Also, my doctor hasn't told me what the condition is that I'm taking the nitro for.
