Answer

Nitrates, Angina

Antianginal agents can reduce blood pressure.

Nitroglycerin translingual (Nitro-Dur, Nitro-Bid, NitroMist, Nitrolingual, Nitrostat)

Sublingual nitroglycerin causes relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle via stimulation of intracellular cyclic guanosine monophosphate production, causing a decrease in blood pressure.
