Drugs for Vasodilation?

There are 24 drugs according to Drugs.com just for Vasodilation! 15 of those drugs are nitroglycerin, which has 354 known drug interactions. Nitroglycerin has been used for this purpose since before the Nobel Prize of 1998.

Then there is Nitropress (nitroprusside) vision problems,

Apresoline (hydralazine) counter indicated if you have cardiovascular problems,

Caverject Impulse (alprostedil) originally used for ED but crossed over and counter indicated if using any anti-coagulant,

Natrecor (nesiritide) injected through IV and known to cause coughing up of blood,

Loniten (minoxidll) only given with 2 other Meds and a diuretic and known to cause trouble breathing

…and Finally – Prostin VR Pediatric which was originally injected into the penis for ED but is not found a new home With Newborns and thus the name ‘Pediatric’… known to cause blood clots and kidney problems and oh by the way, can’t take it with hypertension.
