I had used Ritalin for a while, it helped the depressions, but eventually I felt the pressure building up that signals for me an oncoming manic episode, so that's no longer a possibility. I also take only 50 mg of Provigil, although at my disgression I have permission to take a prn dose of 100 mg if I hit a day when I am flattened with depression.

I had been told that my pattern of sleeping during depressions (most of the time) was because of lack of structure in my life. I had a doc who refused to treat me anymore because she felt I was not "engaged" in outside life. I tried to point out that I was a super-compliant patient, but that the issue of this depressive lethargy was something I couldn't control. Now, with the Provigil, I can get up, keep house, engage in hobbies, read, get out, etc. It's great to wake up and feel as if I want to get out of bed and do things. Any comments?
