Here's the manufacturer's directions:
"Usual Adult Dose for Obesity
Initial dose: 25 to 50 mg orally once a day in the midmorning or midafternoon
Maintenance dose: 25 to 50 mg orally one to three times a day; dose or frequency should be individualized based on the patient's needs and response
A single daily dose is preferably given in midmorning or midafternoon, according to the patient's eating habits. It may be desirable to avoid late afternoon administration in some patients." Source: Drugs.com
The reason you may need to avoid a dose later in the day is that it can keep you from sleeping a full night's rest.
