NitroMist (nitroglycerin) is a nitrate, which is a vasodilator, used to treat or prevent attacks of chest pain (angina). Common side effects include burning or tingling with the tablet in your mouth; warmth, redness, or tingly feeling under your skin; or feeling weak or dizzy.

At the onset of an attack, a dose of one or two metered sprays of NitroMist should be administered on or under the tongue. A spray may be repeated approximately every 5 minutes as needed. No more than 3 metered sprays are recommended within a 15-minute period. NitroMist may interact with alcohol, alteplase, aspirin or heparin, bladder or urinary medications, blood pressure medications, bronchodilators, dihydroergotamine or ergotamine, antidepressants, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, irritable bowel medications, any medication that causes dry mouth, or medicines to treat psychiatric disorders.
