Sorry, sure this is asked all the time.
I seem to remember it's best am but may be muddled with Sertraline.

Thanks smile
Maybe I'll take it tonight and see if I can sleep through any headache then.

As long as you take it at the same time every day either is fine - personal preference.
Some people take it AM and are fine but I've found that some people have a bit of a mid-afternoon 'slump'. Not all though.
Some people take it PM and are fine but it sometimes doesn't fit alongside people who are naturally poor sleepers as it's not a sedating type a/d.
Give it a good few weeks though and any teething issues usually right themselves naturally.

I take it in the morning and have always been told to but it doesn't personally make me sleepy. I think you just find what's right for you. Good luck.

morning probably best -it might keep you awake if you take it at night-alerting rather than sedating

Ooh thank you. Perhaps I will leave it until the morning.

I take mine in the morning - seems to work well - its not a sedating one so probably better. All the best.
