In reply to What to expect on Provigil® (modafinil)?, posted by pseudoname on July 13, 2006, at 15:32:44

Actually, my friend's question is covered really well in this thread ("nervous to start provigil…"):

And these quotes from other threads:
•JOST: Provigil should be okay with cymbalta. I took them together. If anything provigil was a mild AD and good promoter of alertness, for me. It helped quite a bit when I was tired, and improved my mood, although not enough to be truly AD. It was more time-limited, so I felt better an hour or two after taking it, with lessening effects in the next few hours. I usually took it twice or three times a day. It didn't give me a high — it was more that I felt more upbeat and had better energy for a few hours.

•LLRRRPP: So I took my first dose of provigil 200mg about 5 hours ago. I feel AWESOME! I haven't felt this good since? god knows when! I got a lot of errands done, and I feel more organized. And I just feel happy. I have to say. mild euphoria. Kinda scary, but that's the best explanation. I'm worried I'm going to go hug a stranger (okay, that's not going to happen!) I haven't yawned in over half an hour, or gotten an attack of the yawning-eyes tearing-wobbly rubber legs vertigo since I took it. I feel like I used to. When I was all healthy, and organized, and exercising regularly and had lots of energy. Even if this "side effect" goes away, it was worth it for one happy afternoon.

•BILL LL: I've been on Provigil (400 mg) for about 6 months. I like it. It works better for me than Concerta (72 mg) which I previously tried. Provigil is very good at eliminating my impulsiveness and improving my concentration. It also allowed me to stop putting my head on my desk every day out of tiredness. Without meds, I have horrible anxiety. I think that Provigil has a calming effect on me. But it's hard to tell because I also take Lexapro (30 mg), Lamictal (200 mg), and a beta blocker (Toprol) for blood pressure.

•SATURN asked: Does provigil lower the seizure threshold?
JEDI replied: According to this published paper modafinil works as an anticonvulsant.
