Should I take blood pressure meds before or after training?
MARATHON TRAINING & BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS
For the past year, I have been taking 25 mg of Atenolol and 12.5 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide to control my blood pressure. With the medications, my blood pressure is usually 120-130/65-75. I am currently training for a marathon and take these medications after my morning run. Is this the right time to take them? Or should I take them before I run?
