Most people take it in the morning if its once a day but if your mother is having problems with side effects I suggest you have her see her doctor. There shouldn't be any side effects to speak of other than maybe some tiredness at first but that should improve in a few weeks. There are many kinds of b/p meds and if she is having side effects that are problematic she should probably see about switching.
