Pregnancy category: C

Women with childbearing potential / Contraception

No interaction studies have been conducted between MONODUR® tablets and oral contraceptives.


There was no increase in the damage of the drug on fetus in preclinical studies with experimental animals. According to the limited clinical experience on pregnant women, MONODUR® should only be used during pregnancy if the potential benefit for the mother is determined to be greater than the potential risk for the fetus.

lactation period

There is no information about whether MONODUR® is excreted in breast milk. Therefore, it should not be used in lactation period unless it is considered necessary by the physician.

4.7. Effects onedrive and use machines The use of course

ability to MONODUR® may dizziness, and this should be taken into consideration when special attention is required, for example, when using vehicles and machinery.

8.4. Undesirable effects

The majority of side effects depend on the pharmacological properties and dose of the drug. At the beginning of the treatment, 25% of the patients may have headaches. This effect depends on the vasodilator effect of the drug and usually disappears within a week. Headache can be prevented by administering a dose of 30 mg for the first 2-4 days at the start of treatment.

A drop in blood pressure may cause reflex tachycardia, dizziness and fainting.

Undesirable effects are listed below according to the system organ class and incidence. Frequency classification: very common (> 1/10), common (> 1/100 to <1/10), uncommon (> 1 / 1,000 to <1/100), infrequently (> 1 / 10,000 to <1 / 1,000 ), very rare (<1 / 10,000) and unknown (unpredictable).

Nervous system diseases:

Common: Headache, dizziness

Sparse: Fainting

Cardiac diseases:

Common: Tachycardia

Vascular diseases:

Common: Hypotension

Gastrointestinal diseases:

Common: Nausea

Uncommon: Vomiting, diarrhea

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders:

Infrequent: Rash , pruritus,

musculoskeletal disorders, connective tissue and bone disorders:

Very rare: Myalgia

the reporting of suspected adverse reactions:

the reporting of suspected adverse drug reactions post-registration is of great importance. Reporting provides a continuous monitoring of the benefit / risk balance of the drug. Any suspected adverse reactions to health professionals Turkey Pharmacovigilance Center (TÜFAM) What must inform. (; e-mail: [email protected]; tel: 0 800 314 00 08; fax: 0312 218 35 99)

4.9. Overdose and treatment The Overdose

experience ofis limited. No symptoms were observed with a dose of 20 mg given to children aged 2 years and 5 years.


Throbbing headache, excitation, redness of the skin, cold sweating, vomiting, dizziness, syncope, tachycardia, palpitation and drop in blood pressure. Very high doses may cause methemoglobinemia (very rarely).


If necessary, gastric lavage is performed within the first hour and activated carbon is given. If blood pressure drops, intravenous fluid should be administered.

Symptomatic treatment: (methionine 1-2 mg / kg should be given slowly if there is cyanosis as a result of methemoglobinemia).


5.1. Pharmacodynamic properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Vasodilators used in heart disease, organic nitrates

ATC code: C01DA14

MONODUR® is an extended effective tablet form of isosorbide-5-mononitrate, an active metabolite of isosorbide dinitrate. Nitrate compounds provide dose-dependent relaxation in smooth muscles. The effectiveness of treatment depends on dose and individual sensitivity. Low doses lead to venous dilatation and lead to a reduction in venous return to the heart (reduced boot). In addition to venous dilatation, high doses lead to dilatation in the arteries and reduce systemic vascular resistance (decreased sequelae). Isosorbide-5-mononitrate reduces the load of the heart as a result of venous and arterial dilatation and can also provide vasodilatation in the coronary arteries by direct effect. Reduction of the end-diastolic pressure and the amount of blood returning to the heart decreases the intramural pressure and increases the subendocardial blood flow. As a result, in patients who are given isosorbide-5-mononitrate, the workload of the heart is reduced and the oxygen saturation of the myocardium is improved.

MONODUR® is used in prophylactic treatment of angina pectoris. The effect time measured by the exercise tests continues for at least 12 hours. At this point, the plasma concentration is about 1-200 hours (about 1300 nmol / L) after drug administration.

For long-term treatment with nitrates, there is a risk of development of tolerance from individual to individual. For this reason, MONODUR® should be administered as a single dose daily to provide an interval in which the nitrate concentration decreases.

MONODUR® tablets have an insoluble matrix portion, the matrix is ​​usually broken down as a result of intestinal peristalsis. While the active substance is dissolved during the passage of the tablet through the gastrointestinal tract, the tablet can be disintegrated into feces.

5.2. Pharmacokinetic Properties

General characteristics

Absorption: The

effect of MONODUR® starts within one hour after collection. Bioavailability is about 90%. Absorption is not affected by food. The active substance is released independently and independently of the pH of the medium and this process is completed in about 10 hours.

Distribution: If

a single dose of 60 mg of MONODUR® is administered orally once a day, the maximum plasma concentration (approximately 3000 nmol / L) is reached after approximately 4 hours of ingestion. The plasma concentration slowly decreases to 500 nmol / L towards the end of the dosing interval (24 hours after the drug is taken up) after administration of the drug. The dispersion volume of the isosorbide-5-mononitrate is about 0.6 L / kg.


MONODUR is not metabolized from the liver during the first pass.


Total clearance is 115 mL / min. Its elimination occurs mainly in the liver, where it is converted into inactive metabolites by denitration and conjugation. Metabolites are mainly excreted via the kidney. Only 2% of the administered dose is excreted unchanged from the kidneys.

Liver and renal failure has no significant effect on the clinical effect of MONODUR®.
