The preparation Generic Imdur belongs to the group of medications called vasodilators. This drug helps blood flow to travel through blood vessels, making those vessels (arteries and veins) wider. Another name of this particular preparation is Isosrbide Mononitrate and it acts almost similar to Isosorbide dinitrate, but its absorption into blood is faster. These tablets must be taken orally. The number of grams on the package shows the amount of issorbide mononitrate in each pill. Other ingredients that it contains are as follows: colloidal silicon dioxide, hypromellose, hydrogenated castor oil, talc, microcrystalline cellulose, lactose monohydrate and magnesium stearate. All these are inactive components of these pills. The mechanism of action involves dilating blood vessels that makes blood flow easier and helps heart pump it without obstacles. Such ability may decrease the risk of heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular and brain illnesses. Using this preparation prevents angina attack or chest pain, but cannot treat it if it has already begun. Generic version of the drug has the same effectiveness, safety and side effects as its original.
