Imdur 30 mg contains the active ingredient Isosorbide mononitrate, which belongs to the medicines known as nitrate vasodilators. It is prescribed to prevent angina pectoris, a condition defined as a sudden sharp or severe pain starting from the apex of the heart and radiating to the left shoulder. The pain is severe and crushing and is characterized by feelings of pressure and suffocation behind the breastbone. It also helps in controlling certain types of heart failure.
Isosorbide mononitrate causes the heart's blood vessels to relax, reducing the heart's load and making it easier to pump blood. Along with this medication, your doctor might ask you to make certain lifestyle changes, such as quitting alcohol and smoking, improving your sleeping pattern, eating a healthy diet, and weight management.
Before taking Imdur 30 mg, inform your doctor if you have kidney, liver, or heart disease, glaucoma, or hypothyroidism. Also, let your doctor know if you are allergic to it or have other allergies.
