Nitrostat sublingual tablets available
Pfizer has increased the production of all strengths of Nitrostat (nitroglycerin tablets) to make it available during the nationwide recall of all lots of NitroQuick (nitroglycerin, from Ethex) sublingual tablets. At this time, the inventory of Nitrostat has been placed on medical reserve and is distributed directly to dispensing facilities only, based on patient needs. Pfizer anticipates that they will be able to supply the full Nitrostat demand within the next two months.
