Blood Pressure Pills ‘Work Better At Bedtime’

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the first paragraph.

To get the best out of your daily blood pressure medication, take it just before you go to bed, say researchers.

The study was at the University of Vigo in Spain and could be very significant.

As I am on pills for high blood pressure, after discussing it with a friend, who is a senior cardiologist, I decided to give it a go.

I started on Wednesday night, so it is only a few days and it would be wrong to draw any serious conclusions.

But I can already draw one simple one. It is much easier to take the drugs at night, just because you’ve always got a drink handy. Even, if it’s just cold tea in the bottom of a mug or the last dregs of beer in the bottom of a glass.

In the morning, I now get out of bed, brush my teeth, scratch my beard, do a few simple warm up exercises, take my blood pressure and put the kettle on.

Life is simpler!

I also seem to be sleeping better!

It’s too early to come to any conclusions, but everybody on pills for high blood pressure, should read the BBC article and talk to their doctor.
