Take your angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) at the same time every day. You decide what works best for your schedule—morning or night—with or without food. It doesn’t matter, as long as you do it the same way every day.

Most ARBs are taken once a day. For most people, the effects of an ARB last 24 hours.

Take your medicine at a time you will remember. Be sure to take it around the same time every day. This keeps your blood pressure at a smooth level. 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!
