Can anyone tell me what it does and how it feels. Thanks.....
I average about 2 NitroQuicks (dosage .3mg) per day. The NitroQuick quickly reduces my blood pressure, and keeps it down, so I take it mostly to reduce my blood pressure. I also take it when I get chest pains.
I guess that, since I've been taking it for a long time, I don't get any negative side effects from it at all. I love the stuff.
I've also tried the "slow release" nitro. It tends to give me a mild but irritating headache, one in a while, if I take it at night.
You might consider trying ½ of a NitroQuick, as a test. They are tiny, but easy to break in half. This would be a much milder dosage. NitroQuick could be a lifesaver, so you've got to decide which is more important to you, a short-lived headache, or possibly a much more serious consequence from not taking it when needed.
