Medicines against hypertension are recommended to be taken at night: this will help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes, according to experts from Vigo University.

According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, scientists conducted a study involving 19,000 hypertensive patients and found that the body responds differently to taking the same drugs at different times of the day.

The mean pressure values ​​of study participants who took their medications before bedtime were significantly lower day and night compared with people who took the same medications in the morning.

Now the researchers intend to understand whether the regimen for the treatment of hypertension at night is suitable for all population groups and representatives of all ethnic groups, since the first study was mainly attended by Spaniards.
