> I used Provigil for about 6 months as a stimulant to help counter the fatigue and daytime somulance cuased by the other meds I was taking for depression.
> In order to sleep okay at a reasonable hour, I had to play around with my dosage and the time I took it. I found 100mg was all I really needed, but finding the right time to take it was critical...if I took it 1st thing in the morning I would crash pretty hard by around 4-5pm.
> So I would recommend playing around with the time you take the med and also the can take 200mg tabs and half or third'em. I would seek the lowest dose that can keep you alert during the important parts of your day.
> I had to stop taking it after about 6 months because I would become very edgy if I didn't increase my dosage and then I wouldn't be able to sleep. Hope it works for you, cause when I started it I felt great!
> Good Luck!

Thanks! The first day I took the provigil it was amazing!I felt really good. It seems to be mellowing out a bit bc I managed to take 100 mg this morning (early) and I feel like I will be able to sleep tonight. This is good, but also not so good because my mood was pretty crummy today. I went off of effexor aprx. 1 1/2 weeks ago so the bad mood may have been the emotional parts of the effexor wearing off.
I may have to do ritalin or adderall in the long run, because I also feel pretty irritable in the afternoon. I am afraid I will build up a tolerance like you did. I also feel like a need something with a little more dopamine stimulating effect, so maybe provigil isnt for me.
I dont know. I am getting really bummed out about this stuff. Since my wellbutrin pooped out I justcant find a good depression med. I hate seratonin acting meds. Ugh
