both my cardiologists said its normal for it to be high in the morning because your pressure rises as you sleep. which still doesn't make sense to me, but i guess that is why they are doctors and i'm not!
I take my BP meds twice a day 10mg in the morning and 10mg in the evening. It is keeping my reading much more even. When I took it all in the morning my BP would get too low some days early afternoon and I would be so tired I could hardly move. Now I feel much better.

Hi, Just wanted to tell you that my b/p is always higher if I take it after I exercise. I was taking my 50 mg. of Atenolol at night, and my water pill in the morning. By 3 in the afternoon my b/p was running high again. So now I take an additional quarter Atenolol in the morning to keep things down, and it seems to do the trick. P.S. your dogs are really cute.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this: my BP is higher first thing in the morning. If it is a day that I've exercised, avoided salt and taken my BP pill (HCZT) then it is almost always very good by evening (approx 110/90). I can't figure out why my BP would go up overnite, you'd think that it would go down from rest?
