Imdur (isosorbide mononitrate) is several drugs called nitrates. It dilates (widens) bloodstream, making it easier for blood to circulate through them and simpler for that heart to pump.
Take Imdur exactly as prescribed from your doctor.
Take prescription drugs with no less than 4 ounces of water and other liquid. Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release tablet. Swallow the pill whole.
If possible, try to rest or stay seated if you use prescription drugs. Imdur could cause dizziness or fainting. Use Imdur regularly in order to avoid an angina attack.
Do not stop taking Imdur suddenly. Stopping suddenly might lead to an intense angina attack.
The usual adult dose of Imdur is 30-60 mg orally daily. Follow a medical expert's dosing instructions thoroughly.
Store this medicine at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and lightweight. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
Call your doctor at the same time when you have a serious unwanted effect like:
fast, slow, pounding, or uneven pulse rate;
feeling like you might faint;
trouble breathing, blue-colored skin, tired feeling; or
worsening angina pain.
Less serious Imdur unwanted effects may include:
headache, mild dizziness;
warmth, redness, or tingling through your skin;
nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea;
pain or stiffness in joints or muscles;
hot flashes; or
Do not use Imdur if you are taking sildenafil (Viagra, Revatio). A dangerous drug interaction could occur, ultimately causing serious unwanted side effects. You should not use Imdur in case you are allergic to isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate, (Isordil, Dilatrate, Isochron), or nitroglycerin, or when you have early signs of a heart attack (chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling).
To ensure you can safely take Imdur, tell your doctor if you have all of these other conditions:
congestive heart failure;
low blood pressure; or
Tell your doctor about all the other medications you employ, especially:
blood pressure level medication;
dihydroergotamine (D.H.E. 45, Migranal) or ergotamine (Ergomar, Cafergot, while others);
an male impotence medication like tadalafil (Cialis) or vardenafil (Levitra);
a beta blocker for example atenolol (Tenormin, Tenoretic), carvedilol (Coreg), labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate), metoprolol (Dutoprol, Lopressor, Toprol), nadolol (Corgard), propranolol (Inderal, InnoPran), sotalol (Betapace), among others;
heart or blood pressure medicine including amlodipine (Norvasc, Caduet, Exforge, Lotrel, Tekamlo, Tribenzor, Twynsta, Amturnide), diltiazem (Cartia, Cardizem), nifedipine (Nifedical, Procardia), verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan), and others.
It just isn't known whether Imdur will harm an child. Tell a medical expert in case you are pregnant or intend to get pregnant when using prescription drugs. It just isn't known whether isosorbide mononitrate passes into breast milk or if it may harm a nursing baby. Do not use Imdur without telling your medical professional in case you are breast-feeding an infant.
