Nitroglycerin SR is a potent coronary vasodilator. It also reduces venous return, lowers end-diastolic pressure in the right and left ventricles and improves myocardial function. Nitroglycerin SR possesses sustained effect because its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is long lasting and continuous, due to the sustained release of active substance from the capsule. The duration of its effect, which lasts 6 to 8 hours makes it particularly suitable for the prevention as well as for reducing the severity of anginal attacks when given in long-term treatment. Nitroglycerin SR increases the tolerance of anginal patients to exercise and decreases the sublingual Nitroglycerin demand.
