My neurologist just cleared me to take rhodiola as needed to help with the fatigue. I was curious if anyone else had tried it along with their current medication and what your success was with it.
I take Nuvagil also and it keeps me awake all day, but then I have trouble getting to sleep at night. Then I take it the next day because I haven't slept much, and then more trouble getting to sleep. It's a vicious circle and by the weekend I totally collapse and sleep all day Saturday.
My doctor prescribed Nuvigal. It usually gets me to the nightly news
Thanks all for the input! I look forward to hearing about any other experiences!
I actually prefer the regular modafinil over the time-release Nuvigil. I generally have no problem falling asleep as the med has generally worn off by then, but used to with the Nuvigil. Just my 2₵.
I too take Nuvigil and agree with Evelyn. It can become a vicious cycle by the end of the week. It does help with the fatigue, but I find that I get really pumped up for a few hours after I take it and that can be annoying. I also find that towards the end of the work week I take it and am physically awake, but mentally a zombie! Sounds bad, but for now I am dealing with it and am able to get through the week.
