Re: Modafinil or Alertec how do I get it? Steve25sds

In reply to Modafinil or Alertec how do I get it?, posted by Steve25sds on December 8, 2002, at 20:52:19

It shouldn't be too hard to get -- around a year ago, when my psychiatrist first suggested stimulants, he gave me free samples of Provigil, and commented that it's a mild, safe stimulant that works well in some ADD patients. I gather the Cephalon rep gives him lots to hand out, and he says it's very good for certain people, but fails in many others. He likes to try it first, in part because it's much less controlled than other stimulants.

I'm in the latter category (weak response to Provigil for ADD), but it didn't cause me any problems and was quite energizing. Adderall just turned out to be better for me, which is fine with my pdoc.

Are you seeing a psychiatrist or a GP? A psychiatrist may be more willing to try a wider range of options.
