There is no current data to prove that estrogen can cause sleepiness. But if you find that taking these hormones makes you sleepy, there is nothing wrong with taking the estrogen supplements in the evening. Your body is unique and reacts to supplements differently that another person's body would. You can follow your instincts on this one and see what happens.
