User Comments:


For Narcolepsy “I am a Nurse . I gave in and began to take Provigil because I could not safely transfer my clients for appointments . I could NOT stay awake behind the wheel of a car or any time I sat still .Provigil has been a life changer! I started with 100mg once a day 4 years ago. It still works and no side effects!”

For Shift Work Sleep Disorder “Works pretty good but doses only cover 8 hrs. Because my shifts start at 5 am and can end anywhere to 8:30 pm, I have to guess at my 8 hr. Window. When I take 1.5 pills per day, I run out too fast and the pharmacy holds the script. Then I crash for several weeks until refill. Nuvigi and provigil are true wonder drugs but I personally need 250 and 125 simultaneous as we go into a 24/7 society, I need covered at least 12 hrs.”

For Narcolepsy “Hello, I was diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was 12 years old but it was discovered during a sleep study in 2010 out at hospital in denver colorado. I was told I had probably had the disorder my whole life. I am 18 years old now and struggle with this disorder everyday. Provigil has helped quite a bit but does have some cons. The lack of appetite will happen anytime you go off the medicine for even a period of 4 days then go back on it. I also have built up a tolerance to the 200mg so it has started to wear off about 4 hours after taking it and is a very hard medicine to get the dosage upped on. Insurance co will fight you the whole way. Also lost a substantial amount of weight when I first started the med.”
