isosorbide Teaching 1323

Isosorbide is used to prevent chest pain (angina) and reduce strain on the heart in patients with heart disease (coronary artery disease). Isosorbide mononitrate relaxes and widens blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. This medication will not relieve chest pain once it occurs. This medication may also be used in addition to other drugs to improve the symptoms of congestive heart failure (e.g., trouble breathing).

Restoril Teaching 2033

Sn instructed patient about that the Restoril should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. This medicine should never be shared with another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.
