*****************************

Nitro-Bid ointment is used for:

Preventing chronic chest pain caused by heart disease. It also may be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Nitro-Bid ointment is a nitrate. It works by relaxing (widening) blood vessels. Chest pain occurs when the heart needs more oxygen than it can get. Relaxing blood vessels allows blood to flow more easily. This reduces the heart's workload and the amount of oxygen needed by the heart.

As well as its needed effects, nitroglycerin (the active ingredient contained in Nitro-Bid) may cause unwanted side effects that require medical attention.
