|Monotrate - Isosorbide-5-mononitrate, the long-acting metabolite of isosorbide dinitrate, is used as a vasodilatory agent in the management of angina pectoris. By dilating the vessels, it lowers the blood pressure and reduces the left ventricular preload and afterload, therefore, leads to a reduction of myocardial oxygen requirement.|
Indication: For the prevention of angina pectoris due to coronary artery disease and the treatment of acute and chronic angina pectoris, hypertension, and myocardial infarction.
Monotrate is used to prevent angina (chest pain). It can also be used to treat certain types of heart failure. Monotrate helps to relax and open up the blood vessels. This helps more blood and oxygen to flow to your heart. Monotrate belongs to a group of medicines known as nitrates.
