It makes no difference whether you take in the morning or the evening as long as you take at about the same time every day and in the same fashion: always with food or always without food just be consistent.

I'm confused since you should have 2 if not 3 doses a day. What does the label say?

Hi ghm52-
Everyone had good answers. I am on buspar, they are right, try to take it 2-3 times a day at the same time and either with or without food each time. It does take time to build up in your system, it took 2 weeks before I noticed it was working.I take a split dose of 10 mg 3 times a day (total of 30 mg).If your prescription says once a day I would talk to your doctor. For some people it does not work at all. It works for me so far. Hope it works for you.
