|Drug Class: What is Imdur and why is it prescribed?|
|Generic Imdur is a type of vasodilator. Generic Imdur relaxes blood vessels, increasing the blood and oxygen supply to your heart.
Generic Imdur is effective in the long-term treatment of angina associated with coronary artery disease.
|Drug Mechanism: How does Imdur work?|
Generic Imdur contains the active ingredient isosorbide mononitrate, which is a type of medicine used to enable the heart to work more easily.
Generic Imdur works by releasing a chemical called nitric oxide. This chemical is also made naturally by the body and has the effect of making the veins and arteries relax and widen (dilate). This increases the space within the blood vessels and therefore reduces the resistance within the blood vessels, which makes it easier for the heart to pump blood around the body.
Widening the veins also decreases the volume of blood that returns to the heart in the veins with each heartbeat, and this makes it easier for the heart to pump that blood out again. As a result of both these actions, the heart requires less energy to pump the blood around the body and therefore does not need as much oxygen.
Generic Imdur also widens the arteries within the heart, and this increases the blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
The pain of angina is caused by too little oxygen reaching the heart when its workload increases, such as during exercise. Generic Imdur makes it easier for the heart to pump blood and so decreases the amount of oxygen that the heart needs, as well as improving the oxygen supply to the heart. This means that Generic Imdur prevents the pain that would be caused when the heart works harder during exercise.
Since Generic Imdur enables the heart to pump blood more easily it can also be used in heart failure, where the hearts ability to pump blood is reduced.
