> > Hi Tony- I have been using the CPAP machine for sleep apnea for about 6 months now- it takes some getting used to ,but they're really not that bad!There's different styles of CPAPs-and it's SO worth it to get some good quality sleep! My husband and I both use one (romantic-for sure) Now if I could adjust this modafinil to a happy medium-somewhere between asleep and wired!I am slowly working my way up to 200 mgs.-so far above 100 makes my HR high.I'm still waiting for the 'mood brightner' part...Good luck!
> Thanks for sharing your experience.
> I've found I do develop some tolerance for Adrafinil & probably Modafinil, so hang in there. I find the direct mood-brightening effect to be relatively small; what it does is encourage me to be more active whicle awake, and _that_ has a profound effect on my mood.
> Re the jitteriness: If you haven't tried it already, ask your Dr. about Inderal (propanolol). It's a heart med that slows racing heartbeat and helps with some other physical symptoms of nervousness, such as tremor. It's often prescribed for performance anxiety. I've found it very helpful recently; my BP used to run about 145/90 and my pulse was often as high as 90; now I'm down to 120/75 and pulse around 72 - not bad for an overweight, sedentary depressive!

Tony- I had to laugh at the way you signed off-overweight,sedentary depressive-not that it's funny at all but I can TOTALLY relate to that exact state of mind!I am on Atenelol-which is another beta blocker.I've had some 'free-floating' anxiety even when I haven't taken the modafinil-it doesn't take much. I'm mess right now and am trying to weigh the pros and cons of being on/off SSRIs-and modafinil.Thanks for your help! annabamma
