> This is only day three, any ideas on how much longer I should give it before deciding it's too activating? I guess it's possible that my insomnia and trouble staying asleep is unrelated to starting the provigil. I certainly have periods of time where I can't stay asleep. But it's unusual for me to have trouble falling asleep.

Provigil definitely can cause insomnia. At 100 mg, it was too much. I don't find it 'activating' (I suspect that nothing could 'activate' me) but I would wake up at 3 am and be fully awake, and unable to get back to sleep. And this was after a single dose that I would take at 6 am.

Maybe try 50 mg am? Also, are you taking any sedating drug? I had to up my dose of nortriptyline to 100 mg from 75 in order to offset the insomnia from Provigil.

Are you getting any benefits from the Provigil?
