Known symptom of nitrates due to increase cerebral circulation so it is a vascular headache Add paracetamol or napresone for headache In a couple of days it settles down

The most common form of nitrate used to treat angina is nitroglycerin tablets, which you put under your tongue. Aspirin. Aspirin reduces the ability of your blood to clot, making it easier for blood to flow through narrowed heart arteries. Preventing blood clots can also reduce your risk of a heart attack.

This is a natural physiological response due to vasodilation.. Acetaminophen would settle the complaints within few days.

Domcet tds or dolo 650 for few days with nitrates then withdraw

Nitrate induced vasodilation resulting headach No need to stop nitrate s Pcm to reduce headach

Nsaid orally

U can add diltezam
