Imdur (isosorbide mononitrate): “I was prescribed Imdur after a mild heart attack when I lived Overseas. My Cardiologist here in the states said it's the best medication to prevent another heart attack and I agree.”

Imdur (isosorbide mononitrate): “I’ve been taking Imdur for several years for angina, blood pressure and other conditions and I have never felt better. I can breathe again, no chest pains, and I can do things with my family again. After being on blood thinners over 20 years, this has been a godsend!”

“I was exhausted and constantly gasping for breath. My cardiologist put me on isosorbide mononitrate, one pill a day. The difference was astounding. I no longer was gasping for breath and no longer had to take naps. The pill would wear off during the night so the doctor recently changed me to two/day. Am experiencing some pretty severe headaches and dizziness when get up to fast. Doctor had told me I would experience headaches but they would go away eventually.”

“I recently had 2 stents placed in my heart. I was put on 60mg ER Indur. I have been on it for 30 days. The headaches are horrendous, body aches, back pain, dizziness, extreme exhaustion, mental confusion. I feel like my brain is in a constant state of confusion. The headaches are still bad 30 days later. When I stopped taking the medication all the symptoms eventually left including my chest pains. I might have had better results if they had started me on a lower dose. I do not want to take this medication anymore.”
