Generic NitroMist

No generic versions of NitroMist (nitroglycerin spray) are available at this time, as the drug is protected by patents. The first patent is scheduled to expire in April 2016, which would be the earliest date that a generic version could become available. However, the availability of generic NitroMist could be delayed by lawsuits, new patents, or other circumstances.

Can I Buy Generic NitroMist?

NitroMist® (nitroglycerin spray) is a prescription mouth spray used to treat chest pain (angina). It belongs to a group of medications known as nitrates. It is mostly used to relieve angina attacks, although it can also be used right before certain activities that are likely to produce chest pain.
 
NitroMist is made by Dynamit Nobel GmbH for Akrimax Pharmaceuticals, LLC. It is not available in generic form.
 

When Will a Generic Version Be Available?

The first patent for NitroMist is set to expire in April 2016. This is the earliest predictable date that a generic version could become available.
 
However, other circumstances could come up to extend or shorten this exclusivity period. This could include such things as lawsuits or other patents for new NitroMist uses. Once the patent expires, there may be several companies that manufacture a generic NitroMist drug.
 

What About Nitrolingual?

Nitrolingual® Pumpspray is another brand of nitroglycerin spray. However, it is not interchangeable with NitroMist, at least in the most technical sense. This is probably because NitroMist is an aerosol spray, while Nitrolingual is a pump-type spray. Nitrolingual is available in generic form. If you would like to switch from NitroMist to the generic Nitrolingual, you (or your pharmacy) may need to obtain a new prescription from your healthcare provider.
