Reading before or after meds?

I am on Ramipril, and beta blockers, Ace inhibitors etc for post MI treatment. I take my BP in the morning and evening would it be better taking the reading before or after meds? Any ideas?

I'm interested in knowing an answer to that question, too.

Before meals according to most doctors. Not more than 3 times daily if your bloodpressure is very high. Morning, noonish & evening. Twice a day is ok for most others.

Knowing your blood pressure is high at any time is good to be aware of. If you are under stress or calm, tired or fresh, eating or just digesting resting or running; are all times I check.
