General Information on Nitrostat
Nitrostat is used for preventing angina. Its generic name is nitroglycerin. Nitrostat is a nitrate. It works by dilating the blood vessels. Angina occurs when the heart receives less blood and oxygen as compared to what is needed. Thus, Nitrostat increases the size of the blood vessels, increasing the flow of blood and oxygen. This reduces the workload on the heart.
You should not buy Nitrostat if you are allergic to any ingredient in it, have increased blood pressure, or suffer from severe anemia. In these cases, you should consult your doctor before you buy Nitrostat.

Dosage of Nitrostat
Nitrostat is a stabilized sublingual compressed nitroglycerin tablet that comes in three strengths- Nitrostat 0.3mg, Nitrostat 0.4mg, and Nitrostat 0.6mg. Take the dosage as recommended by your doctor. The doses must be taken in the exact quantity as prescribed by the doctor. Since nitroglycerin tends to cause fainting or dizziness, one must try to remain seated in a resting position. The amount of medicine that you take is influenced by the strength of the drug. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the lengths of time for which you take Nitrostat depend on your medical problem.
Nitrostat sublingual tablet should be placed under your tongue and should be allowed to dissolve slowly between the cheek and gum. It should not be swallowed or chewed. You may use additional tablets after 5 minutes but not more than 3 within 15 minutes. In the case of children, the instructions provided by the doctor must be followed.
If you use Nitrostat to prevent an angina attack, take the tablet 5-10 minutes before the stressful activity unless your doctor tells you otherwise. If you miss a dose of Nitrostat and are still suffering from chest pain, contact your doctor right away. Ask your healthcare provider any questions you may have about the proper use of Nitrostat.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
