I took this for many years and tried both but the best was at night as it helps you relax, you get tired on the drug and arent supposed to operate heavy machinery until your body gets used to it so best at bedtime. Youll get a wondrful nite sleep and hopefully dont wake up dizzy from it.

Amanda1525, I took Effexor xr in the morning for years as that was how it was prescribed. But, I always felt so tired out and sleepy. Finally, about six months ago I switched it to bedtime and I now I get a good night sleep which I was never got before, because I have insommia, without the feeling of being so dragged out & tired all day long. Talk to my Dr and she said it was ok I long as I took it. So what I'm saying is experiment & find out what works for you. Everyone is different.
