ISOSORBIDE MONONITRATE

Information for patients
Drug Information Isosorbide mononitrate belongs to a group of medicines called organic nitrates. Organic nitrates work by widening the blood vessels in your heart to allow an increased amount of blood to flow to areas which need it. Isosorbide mononitrate is used to prevent angina pectoris. Angina usually feels like a tight pain in the chest, neck or arm area. The pain comes from the heart muscle and is a sign that part of it is not getting enough oxygen for the amount of work it is doing. Isosorbide mononitrate 20 mg tablets can also be used to treat congestive heart failure. Heart failure can happen when the heart muscle is not strong enough to pump the blood around the body. It may cause problems with breathing and swelling of the legs.
