It depends: Does this anti depressant make you tired or energized? If tired....take at night<br />
If energized take in morning. If it didn't affect you in this sense, that take it at whatever time is more<br />
convenient for you. I hope they work best for you either way.

good point, i only have just begun and for the life of me can't recall the schedule i was years ago. I may stick to day /am for now and see how it goes. Thank you.

If you know when the medicine is at it's peak of effectiveness let's say (just throwing out random numbers for the purpose of an example) 3 hours after you take it, then figure out when is the time you usually get most depressed let's say 6pm then a good time to take it would be 3pm. So you might want to ask your doctor about how long the medicine lasts and when it is at its most effective point and then take note over at least a week when you feel at your lowest. Then do the math from there.

good point but my depression can rollercoaster O_O.<br /><br />

and i have no idea when the meds peaks, also it has the shortest half life, so messing with dosage time is not at all advisable.<br /><br />
