> so did you have the jitters or not? i am still patiently waiting ... hopefully waiting...that i can restart eventually at a lower dose.

Hi Zoe,

I'm very sorry to have contributed (involuntarily, though) to this misunderstanding, but when I heard you saying (past May 8)

"wow, what a positive response. that makes me feel much more hopeful and less scared that i am going to feel this way forever. do you take any other meds? how long have you taken the adrafanil? did you lose weight?"

I (mis)took it as meaning you had past your 'jitters phase' and had 'entered' in the very calm enjoyment and 'relaxed alertness' (as IsoM so well puts it) that both of us feel (Iso & I) on it (actually on the 'adrafinil', at the very low dose of a single 300mg pill I for myself take early in the morning). I never felt any jitters at all either! The other meds I'm taking each day are 112.5mg of clomipramine/Anafranil (a TCA) plus 2mg of Xanax/alprazolam.
In my opinion you should see your pdoc and tell him/her the whole truth not forgetting Iso's testimony and mine (which is almost a carbon copy of Iso's). Perhaps something as simple as 1mg of Xanax, Klonopin or other could end those jitters that are 'devouring' you...
Who knows what such a overwhelming dose of 200mg
Provigil (perhaps worth 4x300mg of adrafinil--the two are maximal daily doses) can do together with the Wellbutrin which is by itself a stimulant? I should not rule out kind of a (hypo)manic episode or whatever it be.
So, to be on the safe side, go see your doc (I read somewhere these drugs are not yet well known in the US, most studies about having been published in French) and please keep us posted.

I wish you the very best of luck.
