From this study (2 weeks ago):
The Nitroglycerin ointment gives me a headache with every use and I initially had chest pain before adjusting the dosage. I am interested in beginning to take the medicine "Metformin 500 mg." as it was prescribed to me and am concerned how these two drugs might interact. The Nitroglycerin is used PRN.

I am not a Doctor. I had anal fissure. For anal fissure Diltiazem 2% Gel is the best. Nitroglycerin is expensive and the side effect of a pounding headache is unbearable. Kindly consult your Doctor prior to using.
