Newbie, Father on nitro

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this board but not to iVillage. My father suffered his first heart attack recently at the age of 78. Thankfully it was minor and he has minimal permanent damage.
He is carrying nitro with him now but was told that he shouldn't carry it in a pocket. He was told someone makes a bottle that can be worn around the neck on a chain. We've checked with a couple major pharmacies (Brooks and CVS) and can't find them. Does anyone have one and know where I can get it?

Thanks in advance for any info you might have. I'm sure as we learn more I'll be here to ask more questions.
