Isordil Titradose (Isosorbide Dinitrate)

General Information

Isordil Titradose (Isosorbide Dinitrate) is used to prevent angina which is a type of chest pain. It is caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. It is usually in patients with a certain heart condition called coronary artery disease.

Coronary artery disease is the blockage or narrowing of the coronary arteries. Atherosclerosis is the main cause of this type of condition. Atherosclerosis is the build-up of cholesterol and fatty deposits on the inner wall of the arteries. It is also sometimes called clogging or hardening of the arteries.

How does Isordil Titradose (Isosorbide Dinitrate) work?

Isordil Titradose (Isosorbide Dinitrate) is a type of vasodilators which are the dilators of blood vessels. Blood returning from the body in the veins must be pumped by the heart. It is through the lungs and into the body’s arteries against the high pressure in the arteries. This will work by letting the heart’s muscle create and use energy. It also requires oxygen.

This medication develops the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. It also lessens the work that the heart must do. It is by expanding the arteries and veins in the body. Expanding the arteries lowers the pressure in the arteries against which the heart must pump.

As a result of both effects, the heart works less and needs less blood and oxygen. It also expands the arteries that supply the heart with blood. It is to let the heart receive more blood and oxygen.
