Blood pressure medication is better taken at night

If you’re one of the millions of people who takes blood pressure-lowering medication every day, you might be better off popping that pill every night instead. Why? Taking the drug at night not only controls blood pressure better, but also reduces the risk of potentially fatal heart problems. That’s the word from Spanish researchers, who concluded that heart conditions, such as strokes and heart attacks, can be drastically reduced in patients with hypertension if they just take the medication at night instead of in the morning. Best of all, this requires no extra effort or cost.
