Effectiveness

How Monoket Affects PatientsIsosorbide mononitrate is a medication used to prevent and manage angina. It relaxes the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and blood to reach the heart. This reduces the work the heart has to do and prevents chest pain. Isosorbide mononitrate also relaxes other types of smooth muscles, such as those in the esophagus and bile ducts. Taking it usually provides relief from chest pain within an hour, and the effects can last up to 12 hours.
How Monoket works in the bodyIsosorbide mononitrate works by releasing nitric oxide, which is a gas that helps blood vessels relax and widen. This process is triggered by an increase of cyclic GMP, which activates protein kinases. These protein kinases then reduce the amount of calcium in the cells, which leads to the relaxation of smooth muscle cells and blood vessels widening.
