Are you supposed to spread your high blood pressure meds throughout the day so not to lower the pressure too much at one time?

In brief: As prescribed
The best way to take your BP meds is as the doctor who prescribed them said to.
It is helpful if all your BP meds are prescribed by the same doctor, to avoid serious problems.

In brief: Depends on the med
Depends on the medication and the half life.
Some medications can be taken together as they have different absorption and release rates. Others will affect the body at about the same time and so should be spaced apart. Others such as beta-blockers may make a person feel tired and are better off taken int he evening or night.

Most of the once a day medicines can be taken at the same time as these are effective over 24 hours,some meds which are twice a day like coreg and some other beta blockers can be taken twice a day and some old fassioned meds like aldomet amd clonidine need to be taken three times a day.So it depends on the meds,ask your doctor how you take your meds
