The best time to take hypertension medicine is in the morning
Evening doses are usually added if BP remains high in the evening hours after the morning doses
This can vary from patient to patient
What happens is in the night para sympathetic tone predominates and during the day hours sympathetic tone predominates
You should take it in the morning at a fixed time
Hypertension medicines can also be taken empty stomach and have no relation with meals

Hello..... You can take hypertensive medicine at bed time.. Usually there should be time gap of two to three hours between dinner and sleep.. You can take at any time in this period.. Take tablet before going to bed... Restrict salt intake ,avoid crispy times like chips, etc.. Regularly check your blood pressure....
