Isosorbide is a vasodilator, so it helps the heart function better, by not making it work as hard.

And Furosemide is a diuretic that's used to help remove excess fluid in the body, because that can contribute to or cause heart failure.

So they are different medications that are used to treat the same types of medical conditions.

It isn't unusual for someone with heart failure to be taking several different ones to try to get their condition stabilized.

Do you see someone regularly for management of your heart failure?
