You can take it either time but most people take it in the morning (including me).  It can sometimes cause insomnia which is obviously not a good thing at night time.

you can call your docs office or your pharmacist for a more professional opinion but i do believe as was said most can cause insomnia

I take EffexorXR in the morning with breakfast. I do not get fatigue from the medication.
