I think that you should probably take it when you get home, if it isn't too late in the day. There usually is directions for that. It usually says if you miss a dose take it as soon as possible. But if it is close to your next dose, just skip it and wait until your next dose. You could call the pharmacy or your doctor and get better advice. I would hate for it to disrupt your sleep or anything.

Take it when you get home would be my advice.  Many people take it in the evening while others in the morning.  It is 30 mgs so that is not a whopping dose but if you are not sure do call and check with your phsician. Remember I am not a professional.

Take care
