Am I Taking Products That React With NitroMist?

Alcohol
Combining alcohol with NitroMist may increase the risk for low blood pressure (hypotension). Check with your healthcare provider before drinking alcohol while using NitroMist.
 
Alteplase
Based on reports of a drug interaction with intravenous (IV) nitroglycerin, it is possible that NitroMist could decrease the level of alteplase in the bloodstream, perhaps making it less effective. In the event that you need alteplase (which is sometimes used for people who are having a heart attack, blood clots, or certain types of strokes), make sure your healthcare provider knows you have been using NitroMist.
 
Blood Pressure Medications
Combining NitroMist with blood pressure medications may cause dangerously low blood pressure. Your blood pressure may need to be closely monitored if you take these medications together.
 
Ergot Medications
Ergot medications can make NitroMist less effective at relieving chest pain (angina). Also, NitroMist may increase the level of ergot medications in the blood, increasing the risk for ergot side effects. In general, this combination of medications should be avoided if possible.
 
Phosphodiesterase Type-5 (PDE5) Inhibitors
If you are using NitroMist, you cannot take a PDE5 inhibitor, as dangerously low blood pressure may result. You cannot take these medications even within a few days of each other.
 
Rosiglitazone
One study has suggested that people taking rosiglitazone with a nitrate, including NitroMist, might have an increased risk for poor blood flow to the heart, which may lead to a heart attack.
