WHAT IS ISOSORBIDE MONONITRATE?

Isosorbide Mononitrate belongs to a family of drugs called nitrates. It dilates (widens) blood vessels, paving a clear passage for the blood to flow easily thereby helping the heart to pump blood easier. It is prescribed mainly to prevent angina attacks (chest pain). However, it will not treat an angina attack that has already begun. This medication may also be prescribed for other conditions not listed here.

Isosorbide Mononitrate is sold under various drugs, some of which are Isosorb Mono, Ismo (made by ESP Pharma Inc.), and Imdur (made by Schering Corporation).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT ISOSORBIDE MONONITRATE:

Avoid taking Isosorbide Mononitrate if you are taking Sildenafil (Viagra, Revatio, or others). Taking both these medications at the same time can lead to serious, life threatening side effects. Also avoid Isosorbide Mononitrate if you are allergic to it, isosorbide diMononitrate, or nitroglycerin, or if you have early signs of a heart attack (chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, or general ill feeling).

Prior to taking Isosorbide Mononitrate, inform your doctor if you have congestive heart failure, low blood pressure, or kidney disease.
