About glyceryl trinitrate
Glyceryl trinitrate is used to treat and prevent chest pain which is a symptom of angina and other heart conditions including heart failure (a condition where the pumping action of the heart is reduced).

Angina is pain or tightness of the chest caused by a lack of oxygen reaching the heart muscle. Nitrates like glyceryl trinitrate, work in two different ways. They widen the arteries that carry blood to the heart muscle and they relax the veins that return blood from the body to the heart. Together these actions allow more oxygen to reach the heart muscle and reduce the work of the heart. This lowers the overall strain on the heart reducing the risk of angina and relieving the pain associated with an acute angina attack. Glyceryl trinitrate can be used to treat an angina attack or can be taken before exercise or exertion to help prevent an attack..
