Nicorandil Drug Information

Medication Information: In angina, heart pain is felt in the chest area. These pains are caused by narrowing of the heart vessels. This narrowing of the arteries reduces blood flow to certain areas of the heart. When the heart needs more blood and oxygen (for example, when climbing stairs or running), pain is felt in the chest area. Nicordil relaxes blood vessels. This condition increases blood flow and oxygen to the heart and reduces pain, as well as the likelihood of the consequences and complications of angina.
