Imdur (isosorbide mononitrate) "Dr started me on Imdur for angina/heart failure-after about 1 week, shortness of breath gone and I have no chest pain. I couldn't even turn over in bed without getting short of breath no side effects all-still taking after 6mths & feel great."

"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."

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 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."

"This was for the Isosorbide Dinitrate 20mg Tablets. This was worse pain I ever experienced on this medication. The headaches were so unbearable debilitating that I had to go to the emergency room. They were so severe my vision became blurry, I had 3 CT scans and and MRI done just take make sure I had Intercranial bleeding . They stopped that mesiciatiin along with Hydralazine to bring me back to normal."

"This medication causes me to have pressure and tightness in my head, tightness in my ear, and inflammation. I take it along with hydralazine and it does not lower my blood pressure enough. A higher dosage increases the bad symptoms."

"I am a 78-year-old with heart failure. I have been on this medication for about a month. I experienced a slight headache in the first few days, but it was gone by the end of the first week. It has been effective in relieving my angina. I would recommend it if you don't experience headaches."

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."
