My father is 61 years old and he has angina pectoris. His cardiologist told him that Nitroglycerin can be very useful and effective. My father needs to use it whenever he feels a characteristic chest pain. I’m wondering how Nitroglycerin works. Does anybody can explain that to me, please? Does Nitroglycerin stop angina pectoris?

Nitroglycerin is used for symptomatic relief of angina pectoris. This medication works by reducing the oxygen requirements of the heart muscle. It mainly relaxes the veins and relaxes the coronary arteries a little. After taking a nitroglycerin under the tongue, relief is likely to follow within one to two minutes.
