In brief: Various effects.
A nitroglycerin (NTG) overdose may lead to headache, flushing, low blood pressure, and increased heart rate.
Death from nitroglycerin overdose is highly unlikely. If you or someone you know think you are experiencing these symptoms mildly as a result of NTG and think you/they’ve taken too much, call 800.222.1222 for advice. If you ever have serious concerns about how you’re feeling, call 911.
