Can someone that is having an anxiety take nitroglycerin 0.4mg?

I do not think this medication is for anxiety.

Nitroglycerin is used in the treatment of angina; anal fissure and fistula; heart attack; angina pectoris prophylaxis; heart failure (and more), and belongs to the drug classes antianginal agents, vasodilators.

I suggest you talk to your Dr., there are antidepressants, benzodiazepines and other medications like Buspar for the treatment of anxiety.

It is also routinely used off-label for treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), and for acute coronary syndromes (ACS).1 Other off-label uses include the treatment of extravasation of vasopressors, for esophageal spastic disorders, and hemorrhage from esophageal varices.
