They just put at night as it's different for everyone. Some people feel an effect quicker than others. When I was on olanzapine I used to take it about half an hour to an hour before bed, but it didn't have a great sedative effect for me, but it did seem to clear my mind.

Last time I was on these I took them an hour before bed and this seemed to be ok. The worst effect for me was in the morning, it was like I was coming out of a coma, Horrible! But, as the weeks went on the sedative effect reduced and I was ok. Not taking it now though.

Hope this helps.
