Exercise tolerance 1, 3 and 8 hours after 80 mg of propranolol, 120 mg of diltiazem and 20 mg of nifedipine, and after 20 minutes of 0.6 mg of sublingual nitroglycerin were compared with placebo in 15 men who had chronic stable angina pectoris. Three hours after drug ingestion, the exercise time was prolonged by 72 +/- 26, 162 +/- 27 and 161 +/- 30 seconds… CONTINUE READING
