Brief Answer:
At what time of the day do you take Isorsobide?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

1. Getting tired with effort might raise concerns about a possible heart disease. Other possible causes are anemia. I will like to know if your doctor has ever cautioned about your heart's functioning. If not, this will be the right time to evaluate this.

2. Sweating and fatigue could be side effects of Isorsobide and metoprolol. If these symptoms happen shortly after taking these medications, they are most probably linked. I will like to know the timing of these drugs and your symptoms onset.

I hope to hear more form you before making definitive statements.
