Patients traditionally take their blood pressure (BP) lowering tablets in the morning and blood pressure is traditionally measured at some time during the working day. Most of the current evidence that shows the benefits to patients of reducing their blood pressure comes from studies where tablets were taken in the morning and BP was measured in the daytime.
This study is researching whether night time dosing of blood pressure tablets would be better (or worse) than morning doses of blood pressure tablets.
This study has now closed to recruitment.
