Got my Nitrate patches

They were delivered this morning and I slapped one on straight away. I'm wondering if the dosage is too low at 5mg or maybe they take a couple of days to really get working because Ive noticed nothing at all. Not even a dull headache.
Tried walking upstairs just now, exactly the same symptoms. So, I will plod on with them until tuesday, which is when I'm due to see my doctor again.

Well I tried another one today, and wow, big big headache. I persevered with the patch but even pain killers arent helping with the headaches. Strangely these patches are doing nothing for my angina, just giving me headaches. They are headaches which seem to be just at the base of the skull, right at the back. Throbbing and feeling like lots of nerves are being squeezed. Dont think I can handle this especially with no benefits.
