In brief: No

No, but since it is used to treat a symptom of a potentially fatal disease, the more you need it the higher the risk.
It can interact with viagra, levitra, (vardenafil) and Cialis to dangerously lower your blood pressure.

Nitroglycerine can be very dangerous if you have a heart attack involving the right coronary artery, RCA, since at times it is associated with low blood pressure and low heart rate and nitroglycerine can make low blood pressure even worse.
