Therapeutic actions:
  • Relaxes all vascular smooth muscle, especially venous beds

  • Primary direct effect is a marked relaxation of large veins with increased venous capacitance and reduced ventricular preload
  • Heart size & PVR are reduced in CCF
  • May directly increase coronary blood flow
  • Arteriolar dilatation reduces afterload, venous dilatation reduces preload [high PA, CVP & PAW pressures are reduced] thereby reducing MVO2; increased coronary blood flow increases O2 delivery to myocardium

  • Severe unresponsive angina
  • Control of BP perioperatively esp cardiovascular procedures
  • Prolonged hypotension during anaesthesia to reduce surgical bleeding
  • Effective in producing systemic vasodilation during rewarming on CPB

Before using your medicine

  • Are you pregnant or intending to become pregnant?
  • Are you breastfeeding a baby?
  • Are you taking Viagra (Sildenafil) for male erectile problems?

    If you use Viagra while using nitrate preparations, such as Sustac Tablets, a severe and possibly dangerous fall in blood pressure can occur. This would result in collapse, unconsciousness and could be fatal.

    You should not take Viagra while using Sustac Tablets.

  • Are you taking any medicine for high blood pressure or Raynaud's Syndrome?
  • Are you allergic to glyceryl trinitrate or any of the ingredients of Sustac Tablets listed above?
  • Are you anaemic (suffering from low iron content in your blood)?
  • Do you have the eye disease called glaucoma?
  • Have you ever suffered from cerebral haemorrhage (bleeding in the brain) or a serious head injury?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'YES', and your doctor is not aware - do not take Sustac Tablets- but tell your doctor or pharmacist (chemist).
