Trygil 2.6mg Tablet contains the active ingredient Glyceryl Trinitrate. It belongs to the class of medications known as nitrates. Glyceryl Trinitrate is commonly used to prevent or relieve chest pain (angina) in individuals with certain cardiovascular conditions.
Glyceryl Trinitrate works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels, which leads to increased blood flow and reduced strain on the heart. It dilates the coronary arteries, improving blood supply to the heart muscle and relieving chest pain or discomfort associated with angina.
Trygil 2.6mg Tablet is typically prescribed for the management of stable angina, unstable angina, and variant angina (also known as Prinzmetal’s angina). It is available in tablet form for convenient administration.
While Trygil 2.6mg Tablet can be effective in relieving angina symptoms, it may also cause side effects. Common side effects associated with Glyceryl Trinitrate include:
- Headache: Headaches are a common side effect of Glyceryl Trinitrate use. The headaches may be mild to moderate in intensity and usually subside with continued use.
- Dizziness or lightheadedness: Glyceryl Trinitrate can cause a drop in blood pressure, leading to dizziness or lightheadedness. This is more likely to occur when standing up quickly or changing positions.
- Flushing or warmth of the skin: Some individuals may experience flushing or warmth of the skin, which is a result of the widening of blood vessels.
- Nausea or vomiting: Nausea and vomiting may occur in some individuals taking Glyceryl Trinitrate, although it is less common.
It is important to note that these side effects are generally mild and temporary. However, if these side effects persist or worsen, it is recommended to consult your healthcare provider.
