Not sure if you knew it or not but Pro"vigil" is named as such for it's "vigilance" promoting effects. I'm not certain but I think the term is even used in the PDR writeup. Anyhow - speaking of vigilance I have got to put vigilance to bed and choose to sleep!! Anybody else noticing that they're choosing not to sleep as much sometimes? :)


p.s. amisulpride so far so good actually excellent. If it keeps up I'll post more but right now I'm just adding 12.5mg to 60Nardil+2.5Klonopin+100Provigil. For now I'm with Nardil but would like to try a switch to Eldepryl if this keeps working so well.

> 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!

I don't like psychological dependence, and now I know why pdocs are very reluctant to use typical pstims.
