1-2 in. (15-30 mg) q 8 hr; up to 4-5 in. (60-75 mg) q 4 hr may be necessary. One inch equals approximately 15 mg nitroglycerin. Determine optimum dosage by starting with 1/2 in. q 8 hr and increasing by 1/2 in. with each successive dose until headache occurs; then, decrease to largest dose that does not cause headache. When ending treatment, reduce both the dose and frequency of administration over 4-6 weeks to prevent sudden withdrawal reactions.
