Information - Glytrin Antianginal
Glytrin spray contains the active ingredient glyceryl trinitrate, which is a type of medicine called a nitrate. It is used to help the heart work more easily.
Glyceryl trinitrate works by being converted in the body to a chemical called nitric oxide. This chemical is made naturally by the body and has the effect of making the veins and arteries relax and widen (dilate). When the blood vessels dilate in this way there is more space inside them and hence less resistance. This makes it easier for the heart to pump blood around the body.
Glytrin spray is sprayed under the tongue. This area of the mouth has a large supply of blood vessels that allows the medicine to be rapidly absorbed. Glyceryl trinitrate taken in this way is used to give rapid relief from the pain of an angina attack. The spray can also be used to prevent an anticipated attack, for example before exercise or physical effort, emotional stress or exposure to cold.
Follow the instructions you receive with this medicine. Glyceryl trinitrate spray should be sprayed under the tongue, and the mouth closed after each dose. Do not inhale the spray. This medicine may cause dizziness and so may affect your ability to drive or operate machinery safely. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medicine affects you and you are sure it won't affect your performance. If you do feel dizzy after taking a dose, sit or lie down until the symptoms pass. Drinking alcohol may enhance some of the side effects of this medicine, such as feeling faint or dizzy. Glytrin spray is a pressurised container, which must not be pierced or burnt even after use. The spray is flammable; do not use it near a naked flame.
