About G3N 2.6MG TABLET

G3N 2.6MG TABLET is used to prevent attacks of angina (chest pain) and treatment of angina due to coronary artery disease. Angina occurs when the heart does not get a sufficient amount of oxygen. When the heart does not get enough oxygenated blood, then it is unable to function properly. If proper treatment is not provided at the right time, it can even cause heart attack, heart failure, or arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms).

G3N 2.6MG TABLET contains Glyceryl Trinitrate, a vasodilator in nature, which works by relaxing the blood vessels and decreasing the demand for oxygen the heart requires. As a result, it reduces heart workload and prevents attacks of angina. The dose of G3N 2.6MG TABLET may be required to increase after a certain time as tolerance may develop after some time. Your doctor might increase the dose depending on your condition, and please stick to the dosage schedule.

G3N 2.6MG TABLET can be taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. This medicine may cause certain common side effects like dry mouth, blurred vision, insomnia, headache, dizziness, weakness, heart palpitations, low blood pressure upon rising from a seated position, nausea and vomiting, sweating, and flushing (warm or red condition of your skin). Most of these side effects are temporary and do not require medical attention. However, if the side effects persist, reach out to your doctor.

G3N 2.6MG TABLET should be avoided if you are allergic to it. Take this medicine only if the doctor prescribes it. Never encourage self-medication or suggest your medicine to other people. G3N 2.6MG TABLET is not recommended if you are taking medication for glaucoma, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, or anaemia. Consult your doctor before taking this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not stop taking G3N 2.6MG TABLET abruptly, as it may lead to severe side effects. Avoid alcohol consumption as it might lead to very low blood pressure.
