In brief: Nipride (nitroprusside)

Nipride is the trade name for nitroprusside which is a medication given only in an ICU with close observation.
It is given only IV for severe uncontrollable hypertension. The brand name Nipride has been discontinued. You may be mixing up the name with something else.
