Forgetting to Take Your Blood Pressure Medication.

Q: I am taking maintenance medicines for hypertension particularly amlodepine 10mg and Losartan 50 mg. I was advised to take these medicines (the 2) once a day after breakfast. However, another doctor told me that taking these 2 medicines at the same time might make my blood pressure too low. Instead, she advised me to take losartan 50 mg in the morning and amlodepine 10 in the evening. What is your opinion?

A: Many people forget to take their medicine. Once a day dosing is the easiest to remember. I am sure your doctor recommended taking your medicine in the morning to keep it simple. If you were not having problems, continue to take them together.
