Drug Description


Nitrolingual Pumpspray is a prescription medication used to treat angina, a type of chest pain that occurs when the heart muscle is not getting enough blood flow. It should be used before physical activities (such as exercise, sexual activity) to help prevent chest pain. 

Nitroglycerin, the generic name for Nitrolingual Pumpspray, is a vasodilator that relaxes the smooth muscles in the walls of blood vessels, allowing them to widen and increase blood flow. This decrease in resistance to blood flow can relieve chest pain (angina) caused by coronary artery disease. The Pumpspray is absorbed quickly through the lining of the mouth, allowing it to take effect within a few minutes of administration. 

Use and Dosage 

Nitrolingual Pumpspray is administered as a metered dose spray that delivers 48 mg of solution containing 400 mcg of nitroglycerin with each spray. It should be sprayed under the tongue at the first sign of chest pain. The recommended dose for adults is usually 1 or 2 sprays, which may be repeated every 5 minutes as needed. 

The spray is then ready for use. 

  1. Sit down and rest. 
  2. Remove the plastic cover and hold the bottle upright with your forefinger on top of the grooved nozzle. There is no need to shake the bottle. 
  3. Open your mouth and bring the bottle as close as possible, aiming it under your tongue. 
  4. Press the nozzle firmly with your forefinger to release the spray under your tongue. Do not inhale the spray. 
  5. Release the nozzle and close your mouth. Avoid swallowing immediately after taking a dose. 
  6. For a second dose repeat the above steps. 
  7. Replace the plastic cover after use. 

If you miss a dose of Nitroglycerin, do not double the dose to make up for it. Instead, use the next dose as scheduled.
