Nitrate therapy: Typically, pain due to angina or a reduced blood flow to a region of the heart, is relieved in the short term with sublingual nitroglycerin. Both tablets and spray are available. In the hospital setting, morphine may be used if the pain persists. Long acting oral or topical Nitroglycerin preparations are available.
