Introduction :

Nicorandil 5mg tablet is a medication used to treat angina pectoris, a condition characterized by chest pain or discomfort due to reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. Nicorandil 5mg tablet helps in prevention as well as treatment of angina. Angina is a chest pain that is usually caused by the narrowing of the blood vessels which supply your heart.

Mechanism of Action :

Nicorandil works through two mechanisms: It acts as a potassium channel opener, causing relaxation of vascular smooth muscle and dilation of both coronary and peripheral arteries, thereby increasing blood flow to the heart muscle. It also has nitrate-like effects, releasing nitric oxide (NO) in the blood vessels, which further promotes vasodilation and reduces cardiac workload.
