How isosorbide dinitrate + hydralazine works
This is a combination of two medicines: Isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine. Isosorbide dinitrate is a nitrate which relaxes the blood vessels and decreases the oxygen demand of the heart. Hydralazine is a potassium channel opener which acts as an antioxidant and lessens tolerance to isosorbide dinitrate, thereby preserving its capacity to relax blood vessels. Together, they improve symptoms of heart failure.
