Take amlodipine once a day at the same time every day. It is easier to remember that way. You can take it with or without food. Some people like to take it with a meal to help them remember. You decide what works best for your schedule -- morning or night. For most people, amlodipine keeps lowering the blood pressure for 24 hours or longer.

Take your medicine at a time you will remember. It helps to take it along with another habit that you do every single day at around the same time every day. This keeps your blood pressure at a smooth level all day long. It is best if there are no big ups or downs.

Some people use day-of-the-week pillboxes or an alarm to remind them. Use what works for you to stay on schedule.

The same time every day, that’s the way!
