Imdur’s active component is Isosorbide mononitrate, a chemical belonging to the class of nitrates. This medication is indicated for the prevention of angina pectoris attacks in people with coronary artery disease. The medication acts by dilating the vessels in the body and that makes it easier for the heart muscle to pump blood all over the body. Imdur is ineffective for the relief of chest pain once it begins.

What is Imdur?
Imdur is a long-acting antianginal medication indicated for the prevention of angina (chest pain) in people with certain cardiovascular disorders, such as coronary heart disease. However, the onset of action of Imdur is not sufficiently rapid for it to be used to stop the acute episode of chest pain that has already begun. Therefore, it should not be used to relieve angina attack once it occurs.

How does Imdur work?
The active component of Imdur is Isosorbide mononitrate, which belongs to the class of medications called nitrates. When taken, isosorbide mononitrate is converted in the body to a substance called nitric oxide, which is naturally made by the body to relax and dilate the veins and arteries. Once the blood vessels widen, there is more space and thus less resistance inside them. Dilation of the veins also decreases the volume of blood returned to the heart making it much easier for the heart to pump blood all over the body.

Are there any contraindications to using Imdur?
Imdur is contraindicated in those patients who are hypersensitive to Isosorbide mononitrate or any ingredients of this medicine. It also should not be used in those who:
  • have hypotension (low blood pressure);
  • have any of these cardiovascular conditions – pericarditis, mitral stenosis, aortic stenosis, constrictive cardiomyopathy or cardiac tamponade;
  • have severe anemia;
  • have ever had a stroke;
  • are taking PDE-5 inhibitors like Sildenafil Citrate.
How to take Imdur?
The right dosage of Imdur should be decided individually by a healthcare professional. The recommended dose is 1 or 2 pills per day depending on the severity of the condition of the patient. The treatment can be started with 30 mg tablet or 60 mg tablet once daily and, if required, the dose can be increased up to 120 mg. Imdur should be taken in the morning after waking up.

What are the side effects of this medication?
As is the case with any other medication, Imdur can sometimes cause unpleasant side effects; however, not everybody experiences them. The most common ones include feeling dizzy or sick and headaches. These unpleasant effects are often dose dependent and can disappear after one or two weeks of treatment. Other adverse effects are tiredness, low blood pressure, sleep disturbance and lightheadedness. In case any of these effects do not go away or get worse, contact your pharmacist or doctor as soon as you can.
