GTN spray overdose symptons

Hubby uses his GTN spray alot but whilst he was trying to cut the grass he had to use it approx every 20mins over two hours. He then began slurring and had double vision as well as the usual headache.
Has anyone else experienced the slurring and vision problems?
The docs cannot be sure whether it was the spray or a TIA.
I would be grateful for any info.

Re: GTN spray overdose symptons

My mom was too fast on the trigger too. She once sprayed once...waited 5 minutes and sprayed again...and then a third...
My sister found her on the floor.
It was only the drug.

HEADACHE (yeah!) dizziness and visual disturbances are all common. I doubt it was a TIA.

Looking at some of the websites, I guess I should toss my tablets and buy some spray. Consensus is the tablets go bad VERY quickly. God forbid I need it and all I have are sugar pills.

Re: GTN spray overdose symptons

Thank you
Has anyone else experienced these symptons in the same situation?
I am collecting evidence to get the TIA diagnosis removed from the notes.
