In brief: Isordil (isosorbide dinitrate) & Headaches

Isordil is nitroglycerine, a vasodilator for the heart( seldom other) which can cause headaches.
It is dose dependent, the higher the most likely headache. You may take tylenol (acetaminophen) for it. If your migraines get worst talk to the cardiologist about it.

In brief: Nitro heaache

A Nitroglycerin headache is not considered a true migraine headache.
Isordil (isosorbide dinitrate) headaches will go away with time. Migraines will come and go.
