Provigil anyone???

I just started it a few days ago.......I really hope it works. I am dragging myself to work. I come home and sleep for hours. I have no energy to do anything.

Re: Provigil anyone???

I've tried it. It did nothing to help my ADHD, unfortunately. If I took it when I was tired it would wake me up, if I took it while I was already wide awake it did nothing. But it's awesome for waking you up when you're tired.

Re: Provigil anyone???

I hope it does something for me. I am taking it because my depression causes me to be very tired and my AD does not work. I've tried stimulants but they do nothing for me, so I am hoping this will work. Otherwise I doubt I will be able to get myself back to school and I'll probably quit my job.

Re: Provigil anyone???

I'm taking it now to help me wake up in the morning. It's good for that.

Re: Provigil anyone???

Its mainly used for narcolepsy although some people say it can help with adhd. My husband has narcolepsy and adhd, but it primarily deals with the narcolepsy.

Re: Provigil anyone???

I was prescribed both nuvigil (R-modafinil, or armodafinil) and provigil (modafinil). Nuvigil worked wonders for ADD whilst provigil did nothing. They are isomers of one another and I have seen that one usually works over the other for each person.

Re: Provigil anyone???

200mg Provigil when I get up definitely helps with waking me up and that seems to help the 15mg of Ritalin work better. Without it, I am too tired and fatigued to focus on anything.
