It makes perfect sense. We know that blood pressures tend to surge in the early morning hours. We also know that the majority of heart attacks occur early in the day. This study shows that it is beneficial to take blood pressure medication at night rather than in morning. It helps prevent the early morning blood pressure rise and correspondingly is associated with preventing more heart attacks.
