NitroMist Side Effects

People using NitroMist typically do not experience any problems; however, side effects are still possible. Although there is only vague information about potential side effects of NitroMist, some of the possible reactions may include headaches, lightheadedness, and flushing of the skin. Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you have bluish discoloration of the skin, chest pain that is becoming worse, or other potentially serious problems.

An Introduction to NitroMist Side Effects

Just like any medicine, NitroMist® (nitroglycerin spray) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with NitroMist. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of NitroMist

For many medications, the prescribing information carefully explains the exact percentage of side effects that were reported in clinical trials. However, the prescribing information for almost all older medications, including many nitroglycerin products, includes only vague information on potential side effects, with no percentages provided. Therefore, it can be difficult to know exactly how frequent the side effects occur.
With most nitroglycerin products, including NitroMist, the most notable side effect is headaches. These headaches can be quite severe and can happen every time a person uses NitroMist.
Lightheadedness and dizziness may sometimes occur; these reactions are usually caused by low blood pressure (hypotension). Flushing of the skin has also been reported to occur.
