1. What is NITRODERM TTS and what is it used for?
NITRODERM TTS contains 50 mg of nitroglycerin per 20 cm2 transdermal patch.
The number used in the product name (TTS 10) indicates the actual amount (in mg) of nitroglycerin released from the system within 24 hours.
NITRODERM TTS; It is presented in boxes containing 5 and 30 sachets.
NITRODERM TTS belongs to a group of drugs that dilate blood vessels, called nitrates.
This drug is used to prevent or reduce the frequency of attacks of chest pain (angina) caused by the narrowing/occlusion of the vessels feeding the heart. NITRODERM TTS works by widening the blood vessels and thus making it easier for the heart to perform its functions. It may also be used for other conditions, depending on your doctor's judgment.
2. How to use NITRODERM TTS?
Your doctor will decide what kind of patch you should use and how many patches you should apply according to your needs (NITRODERM TTS 5 or 10).
Your doctor will also tell you when and how often to change your patch. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
In general, treatment is started with the smallest patch size (NITRODERM TTS 5) and the dose is increased gradually.
In most patients, one NITRODERM TTS 10 patch is sufficient.
Do not use more than two NITRODERM TTS 10 patches at once.
Depending on your response to treatment, your doctor may recommend a higher or lower dose.
Normally, you would put on a new patch once a day, usually in the morning.
Your doctor may tell you not to wear the patch for 8-12 hours every 24 hours, usually at night (called the patch-free period).
If you think your medicine is not effective, tell your doctor.
