Nitroglycerin (NTG) is one of the most commonly used treatments for quick relief of anginal pain. Related drugs include isosorbide dinitrate and isosorbide mononitrate.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a specially modified form of the dietary amino acid cysteine that has various proposed uses.
Taking NAC with nitroglycerin may be beneficial in some cases. However, unpleasant side effects probably limit the use of this combination.
Note: Angina is too serious a disease for self-treatment. If you have angina, do not take any supplement except on physician’s advice.
