Glyceryl trinitrate anal ointment pharmaceutical information

Medication Information: Anal fissure is a small tear in the skin around the anus. Glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) anal ointment relaxes the muscles around the anus. Relaxation of this muscle increases blood flow to the area, which reduces pain. When other medications have not been effective in treating anal fissures, this medication can be helpful in relieving pain.
