Anyone Taking Nuvigil?

Anyone Taking Nuvigil?

I have used modafinil for about a year and it worked well for the first 6 or 7 months but now it doesn't do as much for me. I think our prescription plan is using another manufacturer. I am wanting to change to Provigil and see if the name brand works better. Any advice on Provigil? Also, is anyone on Nuvigil and how is it working?

I have used both. Provigil didn't do a thing. Nuvigil does if I take it everyday. When I skip days because I've whore myself out, it takes a few for it to work again.

Adderall gave me the best results of anything I've been given. However, after taking in for a few years, I opted to switch. Stimulants can have some lasting effects on your overall health and I was starting to get concerned about what it may be doing to my heart.

Hope this helps. :)

Provigil worked great for my fatigue, but I can't afford it! Since going generic it has hardly dropped in price. I look forward to the day Provigil is affordable, if that ever happens. :)

I've been taking Nuvigal ever since my insurance said they wouldn't pay for Provigal. My nuero gave me a good supply of samples. works great on work days.

@Corry- Curious as to how much you take and then crash at 3pm. Trying to get a doseage that is optimal for my workday without over doing it...

Provigil is better than Modafinil and the large pill of Modafinil is better than the small tablets. The small tablet is made by APOtex but I don't recall who made the large tablet. I'm talking about the 200 mg tabs.
