Bp meds before or after exercise.

Q: I have been on nifedipine twice daily for 24yrs now and I am 47years old. Which is better, blood pressure medication before exercise or after?

A: It is best to take blood pressure medicine at the same time of day every day.
The goal is to create the same amount of medicine in your blood stream. Once
your body has adjusted to your blood pressure medicine and your medicine level
is steady, it should not make a difference when you exercise. Let your body
be your guide. If you find exercise more difficult after you take your medicine,
exercise first.
