In brief: How long they last
The main difference is how long they last.
Most dinitrate products are designed to be taken at least 2 x a day where as most of the mononitrate products once a day. They both are quite effective at controlling angina when appropriately prescribed. Some side effects thought a bit less with mono v. Di, but that varies a lot from person to person.
