> I have had Provigil and Zonegran added to my daily regimine. I have read what others have to say about Zonegran, but I am wondering if anyone has had Provigil used for resistent depression. I am bi-polar and up to this point, ALL antidepressants have flipped me into mania. Provigil seems to act differently. I'd welcome any comments. Thanks.

I take Trileptal 1200mg and wellbutrin xl300, and I just added Provigil 100mg. I am starting at 50mg which is my choice. The second day just ended, and it is not like amphetamine or methylphenidate so far. I am bipolar also.

I am using it for energy and attention because I have ADD symptoms from meth abuse which ended 3 years ago.

I will be exploring this one side by side with you. I would stay away from Schedule 2 stimulants though. A bipolar friend, highly intelligent; we met at our renowned university, just recently suffered a hideous depression, and she ie recuperating at her parents. She was on Ritalin, and it was for her depression and energy. I think it burned her brain out.

It really depends who you are though, but stick with the provigil, and I would try to stay on the lowest dose as possible for the longest time since we know these drugs all tend to poop out eventually.

I need to stay aware of psychotic symptoms and rage while on this. I was never violent or raged on anyone, but my doctor emphasized the dopamine issue. Naturally, those symptoms coincide with mania, so keep an eye out.
