    Why is glyceryl trinitrate given sublingually?
    Glyceryl trinitrate is given sublingually because it is readily absorbed from the oral mucosa.

    Q.

    Does glyceryl trinitrate work like sildenafil?
    Both sildenafil and glyceryl trinitrate work by dilation of blood vessels which helps in a better blood flow but the mechanisms are entirely different and they are used for different conditions. Sildenafil is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and glyceryl trinitrate is used for the treatment of chest pain.
