1. What Imdur is and what it is used for
Imdur contains a medicine called isosorbide mononitrate. This belongs to a group of medicines called
‘nitrates’.
• It is used to prevent chest pain (angina).
• It works by making the blood vessels relax and widen. This makes it easier for the heart to pump
blood around the body.
The tablets are made so that they release the medicine slowly over a number of hours.

includes medicines that you buy without a prescription and herbal medicines. This is because Imdur can
affect the way some medicines work and some medicines can have an effect on Imdur.
