Why is my BP much lower in am?

Hi all,

I have had HBP for 4 years now. I was put on atenlol 50mg/day and that seemed to work up until a few months ago. My BP was not getting any lower then 150/100 with atenlol.

My cardiologist now started me on Norvasc 5mg/day and it is getting lower and better but still not where it is, so he increased to 10mg/day

I am not getting any bad side effects which is good.

What I have been noticing becuase I monitor my BP with a portable omrom machine. That my BP is always very low in the mornings up until around 12 noon.

In the mornings it is 110/70 or roughly give or take..then after noon it goes to 130 / 84...and then in evenings 140 / 90

I told that to my dr and he was not sure why, he said depends what i am doing at the moment.

For the most part I am doing the same nothing really different but working behind my desk.


I have always heard that supposedly you have better chance of getting a stroke/heart attack in AM, becuase BP is usually higher...maybe that not true.


Any ideas to get my BP to stay same whole day? thx

My view is: Relax! Your bp doesn't have to be under 140/90 every minute, and naturally a tough day at work will force it up some. The damage bp causes is long term, and a temporary rise to 145 or something isn't going to cause anything terrible to happen to you.
