In brief: Yes

Nitroglycerin is a potent vein dilator and a large amount of Nitroglycerin can dilate the veins enough to profoundly lower someone's blood pressure to the point of cardiovascular collapse and death.
That is the reason that medications such as viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis are strictly prohibited in patients taking nitroglycerin.
