Paxil and time of day to take

Hi, I was wondering for those of you that take Paxil (or similar drugs) do you normally take it in the morning or evening?  I've been told both by different doctors.

Long ago when I was on Paxil I took it before bedtime because it made me very drowsy. Does it make you drowsy? If so you should experiment with taking it either a couple hours before bed to see if it makes you want to sleep or if you have a "Paxil hangover" in the morning. Then once you figure this out I would take it the same time every day.
