Studies that shown that for most people taking at least one BP med at night is the best.

However, don't take a diuretic or a pill containing a diuretic and another BP med at night. That will keep you up going to the bathroom. If you aren't sure ask your pharmacist.

Why please? I am prescribed meds to try to control hypertension and they have always been to take in the morning, and statins in the evening. This week my antihypertensives double and this is now the double quantity in the morning, though I would have thought it sensible to "spread the load"!
