From a Daily Mail artice, although it has been discussed here previously:
Meanwhile scientists are testing whether taking blood pressure pills in the evening rather than the morning may be more effective at reducing the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
Patients traditionally take their tablets in the morning when blood pressure tends to be highest.
But some studies have suggested swapping to night is a better way to reduce blood pressure and associated risks. Blood pressure drops naturally as we sleep and the theory is that taking the medication at night increases this effect.
Now more than 10,000 people across the UK are taking part in a trial run by Dundee University which could lead to changes in the times hypertension drugs are taken.
