A. Mechanism of action
Nitrates inhibit coronary vasoconstriction or spasm,
increasing perfusion of the myocardium and,
thus, relieving vasospastic angina. In addition,
nitrates relax the veins (venodilation), decreasing
preload and myocardial oxygen consumption.

effective in treating effort-induced angina (classic

Organic nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, which is also known as
glyceryl trinitrate, are thought to relax vascular smooth muscle
by their intracellular conversion to nitrite ions and then to nitric
oxide, which, in turn, activates guanylate cyclase and increases
the cells’ cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).1 Elevated
cGMP ultimately leads to dephosphorylation of the myosin light
chain, resulting in vascular smooth muscle relaxation

Effects on the cardiovascular system

All of these agents are effective, but they differ in
their onset of action and rate of elimination.
For prompt relief of an ongoing attack of angina
precipitated by exercise or emotional stress,
sublingual (or spray form) nitroglycerin is the
drug of choice.
At therapeutic doses, nitroglycerin has two major
Organic nitrates

1. causes dilation of the large veins, resulting in

pooling of blood in the veins. This diminishes
preload (venous return to the heart) and
reduces the work of the heart.
2. nitroglycerin dilates the coronary
vasculature, providing an increased blood
supply to the heart muscle. Nitroglycerin
decreases myocardial oxygen consumption
because of decreased cardiac work.
Organic nitrates

C. Pharmacokinetics
The time to onset of action varies from 1 minute for
nitroglycerin to more than 1 hour for isosorbide
Significant first-pass metabolism of nitroglycerin occurs in the
liver. Therefore, it is common to take the drug either
sublingually or via a transdermal patch, thereby avoiding
this route of elimination.
Isosorbide mononitrate owes its improved bioavailability and
long duration of action to its stability against hepatic

Tolerance to the actions of nitrates develops rapidly. The blood
vessels become desensitized to vasodilation.
Tolerance can be overcome by providing a daily “nitrate-free
interval” to restore sensitivity to the drug.
This interval is typically 10 to 12 hours, usually at night, because
demand on the heart is decreased at that time. Nitroglycerin
patches are worn for 12 hours, then removed for 12 hours.
However, variant angina worsens early in the morning, perhaps
due to circadian catecholamine surges. Therefore, the
nitrate-free interval in these patients should occur in the late

Adverse effects
The most common adverse effect of
nitroglycerin, as well as of the other nitrates, is
High doses of organic nitrates can also cause
postural hypotension, facial flushing, and
↓ the oxygen demands
They suppress the activation of the heart by
blocking β1 receptors,
↓ the work of the heart by decreasing heart
rate, contractility, cardiac output, and blood
With β-blockers, the demand for oxygen by the
myocardium is reduced both during exertion and at
rest. Because of these effects, β-blockers are the
drugs of choice to treat effort-induced angina.

The β-blockers reduce the frequency and severity of

angina attacks.

β-Blockers are ineffective against and should not be

used in vasospastic angina. Propranolol is the
prototype for this class of compounds, but it is not
Thus, other β-blockers, such as metoprolol and
atenolol, are preferred. [Note: All β-blockers are nonselective at
high doses and can inhibit β2 receptors. This is particularly important to remember
in the case of asthmatic patients.]

Agents with intrinsic sympathomimetic activity (for

example, pindolol ) are less effective and should
be avoided in angina.

Similarly, β-blockers without intrinsic

sympathomimetic activity are particularly useful
in the treatment of patients with myocardial
infarction and have been shown to prolong
survival (for example, metoprolol).
In patients with classic angina (effort-induced angina),
β-blockers can be used with nitrates to increase
exercise duration and tolerance.

They are, however, contraindicated in patients with

asthma, diabetes, severe bradycardia, peripheral
vascular disease, and chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease. [Note: It is important not to discontinue β-blocker
therapy abruptly. The dose should be gradually tapered off over 2 to 3 weeks to
avoid rebound angina, myocardial infarction, and hypertension.]
The prototype β-blocker is propranolol , which acts at both β1
and β2 receptors. Selective blockers of β1 receptors, such as
metoprolol and atenolol, are among the most commonly
prescribed β-blockers.

Nebivolol is a selective blocker of β1 receptors, which also

increases the production of nitric oxide leading to
vasodilation. The selective β-blockers may be administered
cautiously to patients who also have asthma. The nonselective
β-blockers, such as propranolol and nadolol, are
contraindicated due to their blockade of β2-mediated

At clinical doses, these agents affect primarily the resistance of
peripheral and coronary arteriolar smooth muscle. Their use
in the treatment of effort-induced angina relies on the
reduction in myocardial oxygen consumption resulting from
decreased afterload. Their efficacy in vasospastic angina is
due to relaxation of the coronary arteries.

[Note: Verapamil mainly affects the myocardium, whereas nifedipine exerts a

greater effect on smooth muscle in the peripheral vasculature. Diltiazem is
intermediate in its actions.] All calcium-channel blockers lower
blood pressure.
Calcium is essential for muscular contraction. Calcium influx is
increased inischemia because of the membrane
depolarization that hypoxia produces.
In turn, this promotes the activity of several adenosine
triphosphate–consuming enzymes, thereby depleting energy
stores and worsening the ischemia. The calcium-channel
blockers protect the tissue by inhibiting the entrance of
calcium into cardiac and smooth muscle cells of the coronary
and systemic arterial beds. All calcium-channel blockers are,
therefore, arteriolar vasodilators that cause a decrease in
smooth muscle tone and vascular resistance.

and feces.
The vasodilation effect of nifedipine is useful in the treatment of variant
angina caused by spontaneous coronary spasm.
can cause flushing, headache, hypotension, and peripheral edema as
side effects of its vasodilation activity. As with all calcium-channel
blockers, constipation is a problem. Because it has little to no
sympathetic antagonistic action, nifedipine may cause reflex
tachycardia if peripheral vasodilation is marked.
[Note: The general consensus is that short-acting dihydropyridines should be avoided in
coronary artery disease because of evidence of an increase in mortality after an MI and an
increase in acute MI in hypertensive patients.]

A. Ranolazine
Ranolazine inhibits the late phase of the sodium current

equation. Inhibition of late INa reduces intracellular
sodium and calcium overload, thereby improving
diastolic function.
Ranolazine is indicated for the treatment of chronic
angina and may be used alone or in combination with
other traditional therapies, but is most often used as
an option in angina patients who have failed all other
antianginal therapies. It is not to be used to treat an
acute attack of angina.
