Imdur 60 mg is a prescription medicine used to prevent angina pectoris (chest pain) in patients with a certain heart condition. Each prolonged-release film-coated tablet contains a medicine called isosorbide mononitrate, a class of drugs known as nitrates. The medicine makes 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 active ingredient slowly in the system. The tablets cause your vascular smooth muscles to relax, resulting in vasodilation. The dilation of the veins leads to the unloading of the heart. The net effect is reduced workload of the heart and an improved oxygen supply-demand to the system.
Take Imdur tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. The recommended dose is one or two tablets a day. It is best to take medicine in the morning. Your doctor will prescribe the right dose based on your condition. You must not take this medication for the treatment of an attack of angina. If you have a sudden attack, take a glyceryl trinitrate and consult a doctor straight away. The recommended dose of Imdur is 60 mg once daily in the morning. Your doctor may increase your dose depending on the condition of the patient. The dose can be adjusted to minimize the possibility of headache by initiating treatment with the lowest dose for the first 2 to 4 days. You may take the tablet with or without food. Swallow the whole tablet or, if needed, in divided halves with a glass of water, but do not chew or crush it. The medicine should only be used to provide relief from acute attacks. In these situations, certain other drugs should be used under medical supervision. This medicine is not recommended for use in children
