In brief: Nitroprusside
Nipride is nitroprusside a vasodilator (means open up blood vessels) which is used to lower blood pressure.
It is given intravenously(through the veins) and is usually used in severe hypertensive(high blood pressure) situations. It needs to be closely monitored as it can at times lower blood pressure too much.
