> Emme, my dear, how low a dose has worked for you without overstimulating you? When you say a "crumb" is that an eighth of a 100mg tablet, or just a literal crumb? And have you had any experience on any other stimulant, like ritalin, adderall, etc? Did those overstimulate you, too?

I didn't like ritalin very much. It made me way too jittery.

I typically chopped 100 mg Provigil tabs into eighths, so that would be 12.5 mg. There have been some days when I could take 25 mg and then other days when I nibbled 12.5 mg in half. Because the tabs are hard, you can really do microsurgery on them!

In general, I find it makes me speedy - and really chatty. Actually, I wish I could keep some of that without feeling wired. It definitely brightens mood and has been a lifesaver on occasion. I never took it for more than a few days in a row because it wore me out. I never stuck with it long enough to see if that went away, as Psychosage suggested. So maybe the speediness would settle down. I haven't used it in a while. In the past year, when I've needed energizing quickly, I've used Selegiline.

Good luck!
Emme
