I was on Provigil and had no problem with it. My doctor took me off of it because he said I didn't need to take it any longer. Don't think you will have a problem with it my friend.

Absolutely! I’m taking it
Now. It has allowed me to return to the living instead of being completely and utterly fatigued all day. 100mg in the morning. I’ve experienced no adverse side-effects!

I take 1/2 of a Nuvigil 200 mg. tablet. It really helps my energy level & alertness. Without it I can be almost narcoleptic at times and have to nap in the afternoon. If I don't take just the 1/2 tab early enough in the morning, I will have trouble getting to sleep at night. I don't take it everyday; my Dr. has said it is good to give your body a break. They may be why some people build up a tolerance & it's not as effective. I simply couldn't have a good quality of life without it. It is difficult to get insurance to cover Provigal or Nuvigil (generic for Nuvigil is Armodifinal) even in generic form it is very expensive. Good luck
To all!

Yes, I took Provigal for about 2yrs and it worked great until my body got use to it. I'm now taking Bupropion, it's not as good as Provigal but it helps. Good luck, I really hope it works for you too!

Not tried Provigil. Am on Modafinil, can take up to 2 tablets a day. Normally just take the one, in last few months have only taken the two on two separate occasions.
