Patient : My husband is taking 3 blood pressure meds; Atenolol 50mg, Lisonopril 10mg in the morning along with a multivitamin and folic acid. In the evening he takes Doxazosin Mesylate 4mg (1 1/2tab) along with 81mg baby aspirin. When is it best to take meds to get the lowest blood pressure reading? Thanking you in advance.
Deally blood pressure should be kept low for 24 hours per day rather than trying to get a best result or lowest reading. I would recommend that your husband takes his medication at a set time during the day and is referred for a 24 hour ambulatory monitor to assess overall response to his prescribed medication.
