Class and Mechanism
Monoket is a nitrate vasodilator. It works by widening the blood vessels in the body. This reduces the workload of the heart and helps to relieve chest pain.
If you miss a dose of Monoket, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Monoket should be stored at room temperature, between 59 and 86 °F (15 and 30 °C). Keep away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Monoket out of the reach of children and away from pets.
