Fluoxetine Timing: Fluoxetine can be taken either in the morning or at bedtime whichever is more comfortable for you. However, you need to be consistent.

Yes you can: The timing of the medication depends on your reaction. For some people it can make them feel more awake, so it makes sense to take it in the morning. Others find it more sedating and take it at night. A large majority find it doesn't matter either way. Particularly after they have been on it a while since the medication has such a long half life.
