Thank you for your question.

Isosorbide does cause a lot of headache in some people.

If it is causing tremendous headache like you mention, I would recommend that he should discuss stopping this medication with his doctor and/or changing it to something else like a beta blocker or a calcium channel blocker.

I think that just by stopping the medication the headache should go away.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Isosorbide could precipitate increased intracranial pressure (high pressure in the brain). You should take him to ER to have the pressure checked and get medications to decrease the pressure.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
