Adjusting blood pressure medication on your own.

Q: I am taking Linisol for high blood pressure in the morning per my doctor. It made me drowsy for driving and office work so now started taking before bed. Is it ok to adjust on my own?

A: Changing the time of day when you take medication can help control side-effects.  Since your drug made you sleepy, it was reasonable to start taking it at bedtime.  The important thing is to consistently take your medicine about the same time of day so you establish a constant level in your blood.  Advise your doctor of the change at your next visit.
