Hi - I am still unsure about when to take my blood pressure meds. I was told by my nurse to always take the sof/led first.
I take my sof/ led in the morning around 9 am, sometimes a bit earlier about 8 am. (Does it matter if it is not the EXACT same time?)
How does Amlodipine blood pressure medication affect sof/led ?
I have had conflicting advice about WHEN to take the blood pressure medication. Presently I am taking it four hours after the sof/led, so about lunchtime. But I don't like that as my blood pressure is already high in the morning.
And it's a bit of a double whammy as the hospital has cut my blood pressure dose to half, so it is now 5mg and not very effective anyway. ( In fact a triple whammy as sof/led raises blood pressure also.)
I do have a hospital appt in two weeks but it would be good to get some advice now, thanks.
