I am using Amlogard 5 mg and Tenormin 50 mg - one tab each in the mornings - for my high BP. I would like to know how these two work, i.e. what is the difference between the two, whether it is okay to use both in the mornings when daytime activity will follow or should I use one in the night. Is there a link between these tablets and frequent urination at night.

So they both work differently to help lower your blood pressure.

As to when you should take them, this site is not medical professionals, what has your doctor suggested?

There is no listed link between these and frequent night time urination, are these the only medications you're taking?
