What is angina?

Angina is the name for pain or discomfort in the chest. It occurs when the heart isn’t getting enough oxygen from blood.

Angina is not a disease, but a symptom of another heart condition. Heart disease is a very serious health issue. It is the number one cause of death in the world and the United States.

gonitro-figure-3There are about 15.5 million American adults who have coronary heart disease. Of these, more than 8 million—more than one-half—experience angina.

Men and women experience angina about equally. Many patients who have angina are not taking medicine to alleviate the pain.

Always talk to your doctor about any chest pain you experience.

How well does GoNitro™ work?

GoNitro (nitroglycerin) sublingual powder is a type of medicine called a short-acting nitrate and is used to treat angina. Nitrates have been used to treat chest pain since 1870. They work by opening up blood vessels to the heart. This helps blood carry oxygen to the heart more easily.

GoNitro has been shown to work similarly to other short-acting nitrate treatments for angina.

Plus, a clinical study showed that more medicine was absorbed faster from a dose of GoNitro than from a dose of nitrate spray.

Fast-acting GoNitro is FDA approved for the prevention and treatment of angina. Take GoNitro as soon as symptoms of angina start, or 5 to 10 minutes before they are anticipated.

Even more benefits

GoNitro™ (nitroglycerin) sublingual powder comes in single-dose packets that preserve stability and potency. Each packet includes its expiration date—up to 24 months from the date of manufacture.

The handy packaging can be stored at room temperature, and protects the medicine from sun, air, and water.

Short-acting nitrate treatments are available as tablets that dissolve under the tongue or as a spray. Tablets are the most common type of nitrate treatment and are right for many patients, but they should be kept in their original glass container and tightly capped after each use to prevent loss of potency. Spray treatments are quick to use, but the spray bottle is bulky and difficult to carry around.

Now, there is a new option. Ask your doctor about GoNitro.

You should use nitroglycerin with caution in the early days after a heart attack and it may aggravate the angina caused by a condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Increased hypotension, mainly when standing upright, may occur even with small doses of nitroglycerin and may result in slow heart beat and increased angina. It should be used with caution if you are dehydrated due to drug therapy or if you have low blood pressure.
