Hi! I have so much chest pain. There is very rare day that I do not have chest pain that requires Nitroglycerin. I asked my cardiologist if you can be addicted and he said no. I am currently wearing 2 patches, taking a nitrate and still have to pop an occasional extra pill. I know that I have built up a tolerance but every time I try to decrease my Nitro the pain escalates.
I don't know what I can do to decrease my tolerance. Last time I tried, with Dr. approval, I ended up admitted with chest pain and a Nitro drip. That's when he put me on 2 patches so I could go home again. I'm just very frustrated and frightened because I don't know where I can go from here. Any suggestions. I do have documented vasospastic angina.
