Twenty-one patients with angina pectoris were observed for 364 patient weeks in a double blind evaluation of chlordiazepo˜ide. Patients were evaluated regarding frequency and severity of anginal attacks, exercise tolerance, and nitroglycerine requirements. In the doses utilized for this study, no clinically significant difference was observed with the use of chlordiazepoYide alone or in combination with pentaerythritol tetranitrate when compared with a placebo. Sixty-two per cent of the patients demonstrated progressive improvement throughout the study regardless of the therapy employed.
