Take Captopril In The Morning And Take Amlodipine At Night To Treat High Blood Pressure?
Can I take captopril in the morning and then take amlodipine at night?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Captopril is an ACE inhibitor drug that is used to treat people with high blood pressure or congestive heart problems. While amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker drug which is not only used to treat high blood pressure, it can also be used to relieve certain chest pains as recommended by a doctor.
In your case, regarding the dosage and schedule of drug consumption, it will actually depend on the indications found by your doctor when he examines you. If you are judged that you should take both drugs to lower your blood pressure, then it doesn't really matter. But if the drug is given by two different doctors, and they don't know each other that you've been taking other blood pressure lowering drugs, then this can make your blood pressure drop or get too low.
So our advice, to be safe and to avoid misunderstandings, ask again to the doctor who gave the drug, is it okay to take amlodipine for example, with a history of taking captopril that you have been taking or vice versa.
