    Hi jane32307...I agree with muriel. You've started experiencing tingling in the face & lips. How long have you been taking the beta blockers???? If it's a new medicine, likely you're having a reaction to it. As for taking it at 5am or at bedtime, I don't see how it could make a difference in the performance of the medication. I take mine in the mornings...every morning. I that way, all my meds are taken for the day, & there's no worry that I may have missed any of them. By all means check with your doctor about the tingling. Please let us know how you get on.

      jane32307...Glad you contacted the Dr. Although I certainly am not a doctor, I find it very odd that side effects would suddenly pop up after 3 years! Also, I'm a little surprised she didn't tell you to stop taking the tablets. Tingling is not a normal sensation! 

      Whether you take the tablet in the morning or at bedtime, I hardly think it would make a difference. Not to alarm you, but don't be surprised if the tingling persists. If so, get back to the doctor., & be a little strong about it if necessary.
