ISOSORBIDE MONONITRATE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Angina: “I’ve got Prinzmetal Angina and my doctor put me on this medication after a particularly bad attack. I am already taking Amlodipine and GTN when required.The headache and neck ache from this medication has been severe. I can do nothing else but lay flat in a darkened room. No painkiller relieves it. If you are unlucky enough to get these side effects, they are horrendous.I persisted with it for a week, but it was disabling.”

For Angina: “I’ve been on it 8 days. The dosage is 30 mg. I’m having stiff neck. The most terrible headache. It is for Angina. It is helping the chest pain. They say after a few weeks headaches will subside. I sure hope so.”

For Angina: “I started this drug on the 27/09/2017 Chermydur 60mg XL tablets isosorbide 5 mononitrate, I have read some reviews and I can clearly say most of them sound the same. I took my first tablet before I went to bed and woke up in the morning feeling like I have been hit over the head with a brick, my eyes were hurting stiff neck and a severe headache. I am not sure if I am going to carry on taking this medication or give it a chance because I just hate having Angina.”

For Angina: “I have been taking isosorbide mononitrate 30mg tablets for a little over 2 months now. For the first 4 to 5 days I did experience headaches, however, they did subside. I have, now, started to experience a headache every now and again though. I have, also, started to have the same chest pain, again, which had completely gone away until now. My biggest complaint and concern is that I find myself EXTREMELY tired, every single day, for the past 2 weeks! It does not matter if I sleep 8 or more hours I still wake up feeling like I have had no sleep at all! I can sit down on my couch or at the kitchen table and fall asleep sitting straight up and have slept that way for hours! I don’t understand this but other that that I’m ok with the medicine.”
