Frequently asked questions about Nitroglycerin

Q. Can I take sildenafil if I am taking Caditril 2.6mg Tablet?
No, you should not take sildenafil if you are taking Caditril 2.6mg Tablet. Taking these two medicines together can cause an excessive fall in blood pressure, which may even be life-threatening.
Q. What effect does Caditril 2.6mg Tablet have on blood pressure?
Caditril 2.6mg Tablet decreases the blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels, but is not recommended for the treatment of high blood pressure. The drop in blood pressure may cause lightheadedness, especially when changing your position suddenly.
Q. Does the effect of Caditril 2.6mg Tablet wear off after some time?
Yes, excessive use of Caditril 2.6mg Tablet may cause tolerance which means that Caditril 2.6mg Tablet may lose its effectiveness on you. Therefore, usually the doctors prescribe the smallest dose required for effective relief of acute angina attack. This helps maintain the effectiveness of Caditril 2.6mg Tablet.
Q. What does too much Caditril 2.6mg Tablet do?
Excess Caditril 2.6mg Tablet may result in low blood pressure, sweating, nausea, vomiting, headache, weak and fast pulse. It may also cause weakness, lightheadedness on standing and the patient might even faint. The patient will require emergency medical treatment in such a case.
Q. Can I stop using Caditril 2.6mg Tablet as I feel better now?
Stopping Caditril 2.6mg Tablet suddenly may bring on attacks of angina, especially if you have been using it for several weeks or more. Talk to your doctor who will advise you to reduce the dose gradually over 4 to 6 weeks before you stop using it completely.
Q. Does Caditril 2.6mg Tablet stop heart attacks?
Caditril 2.6mg Tablet is prescribed to prevent attacks of heart-related chest pain (angina) in patients with coronary artery disease. In this disease the blood vessels (coronary arteries) which supply blood to the heart become narrowed because of which the heart has to work harder to get enough oxygen. Caditril 2.6mg Tablet prevents angina by relaxing the blood vessels so that the heart does not have to work very hard. Also, relaxation of coronary arteries increases the oxygen supply to the heart.
