Hi rick and welcome,

Folks here have done early mid day or before bed just depends what works for you. Some have felt energized and found taking in the morning better while others felt more tired and preferred to take later in the day.

The most important thing is to find a time that you will consistently work for you to remember to take your dose at the same time every day. Also most recommend to make sure you are drinking the correct amount of fluids as this is said to help with the mild headaches some have experienced.

So if you start taking late in the day and are having trouble sleeping gradually switch to mornings. If you seem to be feeling extra tired then start taking your dose later in the day. And then just stick with that new schedule.

Good luck on treatment
