    What is Nitro Dur Patch used for?


    Nitro Dur Patch is used in adults to prevent angina (chest pain). When this patch is applied to the skin, it releases small amounts of nitroglycerin at a steady rate. Nitroglycerin passes through your skin into the bloodstream, and relaxes and widens the blood vessels thereby increasing the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. This helps to reduce the likeliness of angina attacks. Since, nitroglycerin is released slowly from the patch, it will not relieve an attack that has already started. Sublingual Nitroglycerin medications should be used if you are having an acute angina attack. The amount or dosage of Nitro Dur Patch needed will depend on your body's needs. Carefully follow the doctor's instructions and report to him/her if the anginal pain attacks continue to occur. Nitro Dur Patch is designed for application as a complete unit. Do not cut the patch. Choose any area of the skin to apply the patch, but not past the knees or elbows. Many patients prefer the chest. It is best if the application site is hairless. The skin should not be scarred, burned, irritated or broken where the patch is to be applied. Do not apply the patch immediately after bathing. Let the skin to dry completely before applying the patch. You should apply the patch to a different skin area each day and wait for several days before using the same area again. If the patch falls off, discard the patch and apply a new one to a different area of the skin.
