RE: My blood pressure
There is nothing against splitting the dosage, per se, unless your doc says otherwise.

RE: My blood pressure
good to know thanks
I just was curious if you split the dose it would not have the same effect

RE: My blood pressure
Not after the first few days - once the dosage has built up in the blood stream, the question is always about the half life of the dose, so give it a day or two on full dosage before going to split dosages, and don't dose near bed time - not later than 8 p.m., or even earlier - you will have sleep problems otherwise.

No citrus fruits of juices, please - especially grapefruit (I had to think for a whole minute to remember that word - too many languages...)

RE: My blood pressure
Grapefruit --- that's the one Doc. It interferes with cytochrome P450 isoform CYP3A4 which is involved in the metabolism of many medications.

...and consumption of too much salt. Choke down a pizza or a big bag of chips and watch your blood pressure spike a few hours later.

true. anything which creates water retention, including salt, but also sugar and carbs. specifically it is the water retention that is the issue.
