Monit AS 60mg/150mg Capsule


Overview

Introduction

Monit AS 60mg/150mg Capsule is used in the treatment of angina (heart-related chest pain).

Monit AS 60mg/150mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines that are helpful in preventing future episodes of angina. This medicine should be taken with food regularly at a fixed time each day. It should not be stopped abruptly and taken strictly as advised by the doctor. Lifestyle changes like low-fat diet, exercise and not smoking may help this medicine work better. This medicine increases your risk of bleeding, so it is important to be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g., football, wrestling). It may also produce dizziness initially, but this improves with time.

How Monit AS Capsule works

Monit AS 60mg/150mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Isosorbide Mononitrate and Aspirin/Acetylsalicylic acid which prevent future episodes of angina. Isosorbide mononitrate dilates the blood vessels of the body. As a result, work load on the heart is reduced which in turn decreases heart-related chest pain. Aspirin is an antiplatelet medicine. It prevents the platelets from sticking together and decreases the formation of harmful blood clots.
