Isosorbide Mononitrate, the active salt present in Ismo 20, acts just like other nitrates- they produce nitric oxide which has vasodilator property in smooth muscles. Nitric oxide activates guanylate cyclase which increases intracellular guanosine 3’5’ monophosphate (cGMP) concentration leading to dephosphorylation of myosin light chains and smooth muscle relaxation. It produces a vasodilator effect on peripheral veins and arteries. The drug helps in reducing cardiac oxygen demand by reducing preload and it also dilates coronary arteries, thus increasing blood flow to the ischemic region.
