Time of medication
I have to take medication for hypertension in the morning and a statin for cholestorol at night, resulting in me forgetting one from time to time. Is there a reason why I can't take both either at night or in the morning so that I can take both at the same time?

Josh, it depends on the type of blood pressure pill you’re taking, but if it is one that guarantees 24 hour coverage, there is no reason why you can’t take both at night. Good luck.
