Nitroglycerine, a drug highly effective in controlling the pain of ANGINA PECTORIS. The oral preparation may be taken in a tablet that is allowed to dissolve under the tongue and the pain is usually relieved in two to three minutes. The drug is also available in patches to be applied to the skin (transdermal patches). Nitrates have a powerful action in widening (dilating) arteries, including the coronary arteries, thus improving the blood supply to the heart muscle.

The drug is on the WHO official list.
