Use Of The Drug Together With Lisinopril And Amlodipine?
, want to ask. My father was discharged from the hospital, while in the morning he was given lisinopril and amlodipin at night. After being discharged from the hospital and when I was home I saw in the recipe Lisinopril and Amlodipin were taken both in the morning. Is that how it works?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Amlodipine and several other types of anti-hypertensive drugs that work long can actually be consumed either night or morning without reducing its effectiveness. Patients may take one at a time as long as it is done routinely at the same time every day. According to research that the effect of lowering blood pressure is not significantly different if long-acting anti-hypertensive drugs are consumed morning or night. It should be recommended for consumption at a time that is easy for the patient to remember. For the current condition, consumption of amlopidine can be accompanied by other hypertension drugs at the same time as possible to be able to facilitate the patient in taking the drug, so there is no need to worry as long as routine at the same time. But if you are in doubt you should consult directly with the doctor who handles the patient.
That's all, hope you can help.
