High & Low Blood Pressure board


I am a 45 year-old male with a moderate case of high blood pressure. I take 50 mg Metoprolol twice a day and a 5/20 mg Lotrel once a day. My evening blood pressure can actually be quite low (last night at about 9:00 it was 119/60). But here's my question. I know in general blood pressure is higher in the morning, as the body is waking itself up. This morning (about 7:00) my blood pressure was 141/83, which I know isn't really that bad, but is that a normal (acceptable) reading for that time of day and the circumstances?

Anyone have an opinion?
