Friend had a heart attach 2 weeks ago, 2 days ago she had back spasm and she took one nitro tab, today she had neck pain and took one nitro and now she said she is urinating frequently. Is this normal?
The nitro may cause increased urination but I have to ask a question, why is she taking the nitro for back spasm or neck pain? Nitroglycerin is not for skeletal muscle spasm and pain. It is prescribed for chest pain by allowing blood to flow more freely and the heart to pump more easily. Just concerned that she isn't taking for the right reasons.
