Isosorbide Mononitrate 10 Mg Terrible Pain In My Jaw Mostly

P4mmy Says:

I only started taking these under a week ago, the headaches I can deal with, but the pain in my jaw, ear and cheek I cannot, the pain is worse than trigeminal neuralgia i get occasionally
It only does that on the morning tablet and I really dont think I can take anymore of them, this pain is driving me mad to the point of wanting to scream with the pain and discomfort.

Please can anyone tell me this is normal? as it lasts about an hour or so, I have even taken paracetamols to try and ease it which I think it is helping.

I am very sorry about the pain you experienced and yes, it is a known side effect of this medication.

The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, anorexia, thirst, vision abnormalities and fatigue.

Have you informed your doctor?

You might try taking a reduced dosage and taking it at night. I had similar problems with side effects on the first day that I tried the 30 mg isosorbide mononitrate ER: splitting headache by evening; a terrible soreness in the gums and roots of my teeth; and a overwhelming greenish color in my vision each time I blinked my eyes. I immediately stopped taking them for several weeks. The pills I have (made by Torrent) have a line across the middle, so I tried taking 1/2 pill at bed time. It worked. My comfort level is greatly increased and I don't have the terrible headaches and side effects that I had before. The increased blood flow while I'm sleeping has helped to mostly eliminate the angina I had during the day, especially while straining or exercising.
