Answer

A study by Hermado et al showed that treatment with antihypertensive medications taken at bedtime provides better ambulatory blood pressure control, as well as significant reduction in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality when compared with taking medications upon waking. [290] The study was conducted in patients taking 1 or more antihypertensive drugs and had a median follow-up of 5.4 years.
