I don't think there is a correct answer to that.  I take my Truvada as part of my evening dose for absolutely no reason whatsoever.  For me, I experienced no side effects from Truvada or Isentress.

No side effects. 

Some months I seem to end up taking the truvada at midday dose, others at bedtime dose.
