Drug Interactions With Nitroglycerin Anal Ointment

Phosphodiesterase Type 5 Inhibitors (PDE5 Inhibitors)
If you are using nitroglycerin anal ointment, you cannot take a PDE5 inhibitor, as dangerously low blood pressure may result. Do not even take them within a few days of each other.
One study has suggested that people taking rosiglitazone with a nitrate (such as nitroglycerin anal ointment) might be at an increased risk for poor blood flow to the heart, which may lead to a heart attack. It is not entirely clear if this finding is "real" or not.

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all nitroglycerin anal ointment drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
