Hello IsoM,

> Keep us up-dated on how you find it working, please. I know how well it works for me but want to hear from others. My wonder drug isn't necessarily other's wonder drug.

>
> Did you feel an immediate effect, manowar? Cause I know it took about a week for me to notice anything. Many said the first dose gave them a lift, but not me.

Not at all. I felt nothing, and still don't.
When I took the Adrafinil I felt no side effects, but I didn't seem to experience any noticeable change in mood either. I guess for me it has to build up in my system. Funny thing is, I've been more vigilant over the last week. I mean it's hard to explain. It's like I don't mind doing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom, cooking dinner--generally functioning like a normal human being. My cognitive abilities have increased dramatically, for sure. Give me a couple more weeks, and I'll be able to give you a more definitive answer whether the drug is working or not. I might just be on a positive mood swing, and it may have nothing to do with the Adrafinil/Provigil. But I'm very optimistic at this point. I use the Burns Depression Index twice a week to chart my moods. For the last week and a half I've been in complete remission!

(Doesn't this post sound much like your post to me about 2-3 weeks ago:))


> I know what you mean about other stims. I can feel my mood rise & then drop as it wears off. I want to feel normal all the time, not like a sine wave.

That's a good one. I remember depending on pills throughout the day to help my mood; what a drag. I like the typical AD effect much better. I feel less like a druggy.
