It reduces the risk of an angina attack by widening blood vessels and improving blood flow to the heart.
Nicorandil Lyophilized Injection is administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional and should not be self administered. Your doctor will decide the dose and how often you should take them. Your doctor is likely to prescribe you oral medicines after the treatment with this medicine. You can improve the health of your heart by making some lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, cutting down on alcohol, eating well, taking exercising regularly and managing stress.
