In brief: Slow change to am

The best way to change is to make the time that you take the medicine a little earlier each day.
For example you can start by taking it at 8pm instead of bedtime for 2 days then 4pm for 2 days, then noon for 2 days then 8am etc until the desired time is reached.

I would skip a dose and then start the next morning.
If you find taking strattera (atomoxetine) in the morning makes you too tired, talk to your prescriber about an alternative medication.

This way is as good as the other that was suggested. Either way is fine.
