the info that the doc gave me said that i should be wearing a rx alert braclet, has anyone else heard this and is it necessary?
Isosorbide mononitrate is in a group of drugs called nitrates. It dilates (widens) blood vessels, making it easier for blood to flow through them and easier for the heart to pump.
Isosorbide mononitrate is used to prevent angina attacks (chest pain), it will not treat an angina attack that has already begun.
An rx alert bracelet has been recommended perhaps due to the side effects that the med may have, your doc is the best bet since he/she has recommended it.
Take care, be well & safe, please.
