Thanks, psychosage. I know you promise that it went away for you, and I really appreciate that you want to reassure me during a hard patch. I was taking the Provigil for almost six months, and during the last month or two, even at the lowered dose, the speediness was actually getting worse. That's why I had to stop it, and that's when it became clear that the other drugs weren't nearly as effective as they'd seemed with the Provigil.

I started taking it again for reasons having nothing to do with mood, and was surprised by how much it did for my mood, so I'm continuing to take it until something better comes along or the doctor tells me otherwise. The 100mgs that I took for the first few days had me high -- not pleasant, but at least my kitchen is clean! -- and I'm taking the 1/4 tablet (+/- 50mg) now. It's got me calmer and I'm not speeding anymore. My mood has dropped a lot, but it's still better to be calmer and low than to be overanxious and even lower, right? The relief the Provigil has provided for the physical discomfort I took it for, combined with the mild mood elevation are enough for me right now.

The dosage thing and the speediness is, I think, one of those places where mileage is likely to vary a lot between individuals. I don't know what your build is, but that can be a factor, as can weight, gender, etc. I'm glad that the speediness went away for you, and I'm glad that the overdrive feeling has eased for me right now.

And I thank you for taking the time to respond to me. It's a hard time for me right now, and I really appreciate the support.
