Could Provigil / Nuvigil be antimanic?

Posted by PeterMartin on January 29, 2018, at 3:00:18

I know his sounds counterintuitive but I've been taking modafinil/armodafinil for over a year now. Im dxed bp1 and I wouldn't say I have the typical response to provigil/Nuvigil. They're very mild and I can sleep on them w.o. issue. They also seem to slow me down. It's not necessarily good in that I don't feel anywhere near as creative or productive but sometimes I wonder if it helps to keep my brain from going too far down the path to mania.....

Im pretty sure I saw a study or two checking to see it the adinils were ok for bipolar where there were less "switches" to mania in the afinil groups.

Am I completely wrong that this could be possible? Anyone familiar with it's brain activity who could make a case either for or against that theory?

Just a discussion.
