When To Take Ramipril???

Can anyone tell me when the best time to take Ramipril? I've been told to take on retiring at night, another doctor said to take in the morning so I've been a bit confused
Be much appreciated

Recent research suggests that taking BP meds at night may reduce cardiovascular risks better than taking them in the morning - but I guess the most important thing is to remember to take them every day at a time that most suits you, or is easiest to remember!

Re: When To Take Ramipril???

Thanks Muffin43 that helps a lot, plus thanks fradley1:-

I do have a slight cough, but it isn't anything that bothers me much, as I get a lot of chest infections anyway which I believe is due to my tastebuds changing. I used to eat a lot of veg etc, but now can't stand the stuff especially colli & brocoli. My buds have gone as they were when I was a child when I only eat tinned veg such as peas & beans, so think my vitamins are out of sync. I intend asking my gp next week when I see her about it.
