taking Nuvigil with klonopin
Posted 11 October 2010 - 10:15 AM
So my pdoc (who loves to try all the new meds) gave me samples of Nuvigil. She said it might help with the depression. She wants me to take it every morning. However, I also take klonopin every morning because I wake up feeling anxious. This seems very counter intuitive to me; take a tranquilizer with a stimulant??? At the same time??
Has anyone else been prescribed this sort of combo? It seems very odd to me. I am also skeptical about the idea of taking a stimulant for depression, I would rather take something that actually fixes the depression, not just masks it.

It seems to be giving me insomnia though, even though I take risperdal, klonopin, melatonin AND remeron at night, so it might not be the med for me.

Rx: Blood pressure meds. Parnate for Narcolepsy/Cataplexy and depression. Concerta for Narcolepsy
Past lives: Diagnosed as depressed for last 20 years. Then told it was just narcolepsy and the depression was situational from living with a chronic disease. Tried lots of meds, but Parnate was the only one to give me any relief. It stopped working for my EDS as my narcolepsy worsened. Provigil had terrible side effects and so did Xyrem. The Concerta with the Parnate is supposed to be a big NO NO, but I'm not dead yet.
I'm not a crazy person, I just play one in real life ;-)
