Re: when to take plavix, lipitor etc

Lipitor must be taken at night (I'm surprised the Rx label doesn't say that).

I'm not familiar with the specifics of Vasotec.

Is he taking the XL (extended release) version of Toprol (aka metoprolol)? Or just the generic metoprolol? If the latter, I'm surprised that isn't split into 2 doses (a.m. and p.m.).

I don't think it matters when he takes the aspirin and Plavix; I take mine in the a.m.

Any questions, though, specific to your Dad should be addressed to his pharmacist and/or cardiologist.
