Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop. I'm a cardiologist and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. This minute is about timing of your tablets and, in particular, your blood pressure tablets where there has been some research in this space.
It's interesting. It tells us that giving blood pressure tablets at night seems to offer incremental benefit over offering those tablets first thing in the morning. And that seems to be related to the natural variations within our circadian rhythms and the changes in hormones that occur within the body, particularly in the early hours of the morning, and that is protected by taking your blood pressure therapies at night.
Often, some of the cholesterol medications are best taken at night can add to the ease and the adherence to taking medication, if you're taking all your pills in one hit in the evening.
I cover all that in more detail in a podcast that's attached to this video. You may wish to check it ou.
For now though. I'm gonna wish you the very best. I hope you live as well as possible, for as long as possible, and bye for now!
