Nitroglycerin for Injection 5 mg/mL Single Dose Vials 10 mL, 25/Tray
American Regent Nitroglycerin Injection is a 5 mg/mL, single dose vial of Nitroglycerin in 10 mL. American Regent Nitroglycerin Injection is indicated for the relief of an acute attack of angina pectoris.
Nitroglycerin is a type of organic nitrate that is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It is a potent vasodilator with effects on both arteries and veins. Nitroglycerin produces its pharmacologic effects by releasing nitric oxide, which activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase. This leads to an increase in the level of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which relaxes smooth muscle and dilates blood vessels.
The onset of action of sublingual nitroglycerin is typically immediate and dramatic, with relief of pain within 30 seconds. The therapeutic effect lasts for a few minutes to 1 hour. If an attack is not relieved by the first dose of nitroglycerin, the dose may be repeated after 5 minutes. If the pain persists after a second dose, the patient should seek immediate medical attention.
