It's generally recommended that if someone takes three sublingual nitroglycerine pills, five minutes apart, and still has chest pain, then he or she should go to the ER for further evaluation.

Usually stable angina pain should be relieved by the three tablets. If not, perhaps there is something more acute going on, and this needs to be investigated.

I hope this is helpful. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have and I hope you get the care you need, soon.
