Again it depend regarding which drug you are talking !!But generally it is best to take in morning hours as during the day many psychosomatic works are going on and on we need to have our blood pressure to control !As in evening hours our thinking and prime important things are not causing much worries we can have a cool effect in night time so we do not need the availability of anti hypertensive drug to the extent we need in beginning of the day !But some anti hypertensive drug is also having heart protective effect separately and that can be taken for both the purpose in evening hours !Always YouRsmE

I am 54 yo, have been treated for hypertension since age twenty. I am not overweight nor do I have any other risk factors. I was on birth control pills at the time of dx which I discontinued immediately. I have recently stopped taking losartan secondary to muscular side effects. at that time I was taking 5mg bystolic to compliment the losartin and am now taking 20mg bystolic. what classification of antihypertensive agent do you recommend to facilitate a much smaller dose of bystolic as I do not need the lowered metabolism?

I was treated for bilateral papilledema due to idiopathic intra cranial hypertension with IV administration of methyloprednisolone & Solumedrol.... which shot up my BP so anti hypertensives were given..Further I was on Wysolone oral tapering from 40mg to 30- 20-10 mg over two months..Now I m absolutely off steroids but DImaox 250 is given TDS. MY BP continues in normal range of 120 130/80-90 despite taking SELOKEN 50 COB+VERSYL 8mg (both once a day) and STAMLO 5 mg (twice a day).....How long will I need anti hypertensives as a cover for the side effects of steroids? Thanks
