Hi, Toni! Sertraline can be taken morning or evening whichever is most convenient for you. It can also be taken with or without food but it should be taken at the same time every day.
Some people experience some mild nausea, drowsiness, and sleepiness for the first few days to a week or so when starting sertraline ~ that might be a reason to take it at bedtime if you have these side effects.
Also be careful to avoid NSAID pain relievers (Aleve, naproxen, ibuprofen, etc.) without your doctor's approval. The two drugs taken together can sometimes cause bleeding/bruising issues.

Hi Toni, Sertraline doesn't make me tired so I take it in the mornings. I hear that it can make you drowsy, therefore taking it at night would be understandable.
