Generic Name: Isosorbide mononitrate
Product Name: Imdur Durules
Prophylaxis for angina.
Isosorbide mononitrate reduces the end diastolic pressure and volume leading to an improvement in the subendocardial blood flow. The net result is reduced workload for the heart by producing venous and arterial dilatation and an improvement in oxygen supply. Natural initiator of vascular relaxation is endothelium derived relaxing factor, which has the characteristics of nitric oxide. Organic nitrates are metabolised to nitric oxide and they are thought to be the physiological substitute for endothelium derived relaxing factor.
