Yes….George Benson had it right…..with his 80’s hit ….Give Me The Night…..especially when it comes to taking your blood pressure medication
A recent large-scale study from Spain shows that taking your blood pressure medication before bed is significantly healthier than taking your medication in the morning. Other studies have hinted at this, but this study is clearly confirming what we think.
Why this works is that many body systems have a circadian rhythm that turns an late at night or in the early hours of the morning and having slightly higher dosages of medication at those times provides protection against elevated blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack.
So…from now on….take your blood pressure medications at night and get the benefits without needing additional dosing.
