Brief description Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common cause of hypertension, however treatment of OSA only results in a modest improvement in blood pressure (BP) and patients who are unable to tolerate treatment must rely on pharmacotherapy to control their BP. This study will definitively establish if altering the time of taking medication can improve BP control over 24 hours. The results will conribute to the development of more targeted treatment strategies for hypertension in people with OSA.
