Nitroglycerin aerosol is used for :
Preventing or relieving a sudden attack of angina (chest pain)
caused by heart disease. It may also be used for other conditions
as determined by your doctor.
Nitroglycerin aerosol is a nitrate. It works by dilating (widening)
blood vessels. Chest pain occurs when the heart needs more oxygen
than it can get. Dilating blood vessels allows blood to flow more
easily. This reduces the heart's workload and the amount of oxygen
needed by the heart.
