Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Having stent is not a contraindication and you can have it. Very important thing is that you must not be taking nitrates like isosorbide mononitrate or dinitrate, glyceryl trinitrate or nitroglycerin tablets which comes in brand names like monotrate, sorbitrate, nitrocontin, new gtn etc.

If you are having any of these, then don't take otherwise it may cause sudden drop in blood pressure and serious side effects. Otherwise it's safe.
