Isosorbide nitrate is used to treat or to prevent occurrence of chest pain and it also helps in lowering blood pressure. my opinion is that you should not be worried much because headache is the most symptom seen after with drawl of the drug.
i would advise you to consult your doctor before re starting your drug intake.
