> Hi Folks,
> I tried provigil a while back at 25 and then 50 mg. I felt positively manic several hours aftr taking it, and then profoundly exhausted in the evening from the overstimulation. So I dropped it like a hot potato. I'm having a lot of fatigue lately and have been feeling depressed. My doctor recommended giving it another shot at a smaller dosage. Today I'm trying a "flea size" dose of 12.5, yes 12.5 mg. Or at least that's what I think I ended up with after doing surgery on the table with a pill splitter. We'll see what happens. I've got plenty of klonopin on hand in case it makes me too wired. (I'm also taking Lamictal and neurontin.)

Interesting that your doctor wants to retry at an even smaller dosage, despite that experience. Let us know the result. I know the stuff is $$$$ as all getout, *so* if I could just take 1/8 of a $3-5 pill every AM I wouldn't mind forking out the cash. But, the main thing I like about it is once/day dosing, and no CII hassles with the pharmacy and my pdoc. It is supposed to be a DA reuptake inhibitor. Also, Zoloft inhibits reuptake of DA a tad (and I responded particularly well to Zoloft-motivationwise), but it just shreds my guts to pieces, so I am wondering if a tiny nugget of Provigil combined with the tiny nugget of Celexa I take (every other day) might work out quite well.

good luck,
