What Is Nitroglycerin Anal Ointment Used For?

Are There Off-Label Uses?

If your healthcare provider recommends nitroglycerin anal ointment for something other than chronic anal fissures, this would be known as an "off-label" use. There are no universally accepted off-label uses for nitroglycerin anal ointment. Nitro-Bid® ointment (a nitroglycerin ointment available in a much higher strength) is approved for treating chest pain (angina), but nitroglycerin anal ointment is not potent enough for this use.
