In brief: 3 times a day

While there is no specific contraindication to taking Buspar (buspirone) with Zoloft, the usual caution applies to medications in combination.
The side effects can be more frequent and more intense than with one medication alone. Buspar (buspirone) should be taken three times a day. If it is tending to cause insomnia, taking one dose in the morning should be okay if the three doses can be spaced out during the day.

In brief: Yes.

Buspirone and sertraline often work well together, but the buspirone takes time to take effect, and a sufficient dose is required -- which may take time to reach.
Buspirone is not technically a stimulant, but it does have a tendency to keep some people awake at night, if it is taken too late in the day. A useful approach is to take one dose in the morning and another in the early afternoon.
