Depends of which:
But in general, medications for hypertension that are taken once a day could be taken anytime but usually at the same time of every day.

Can I take semenax if im taking blood pressure medicine. My blood pressure is 140/90 and its only a 5mg pill for my blood pressure?
Don't take semenax!: I am admittedly very highly suspect of non-fda approved "supplements" like semenax. This is an over the counter supplement which purportedly increases semen volume. A review of the website shows they won't list their active ingredients. Such products are likely to be overpriced vitamins, scams or fraud and could be dangerous. If you are having problems with sex, I encourage you to see your doc! ...Read more

Are you suppose to still take high blood pressure medicine if your blood pressure is 117/73 and 109/74 thanks?
Yes, but...: Yes you can, but i'd be careful with it. If you don't already, i'd buy a home BP cuff and keep a log (once daily is fine) of your BP while you're taking the phenteramine.
