    I am just a regular, day to day woman that happens to have a list of mental disorders/illnesses. This is not what defines me. There are many facets to my personality and I can be a great friend, a fun person to be around, and I have a deep compassion for others.

  1. Hello, I am taking both Adderall and Nuvigil. I have been on Adderall for about 8 years and Nuvigil for about 1 year. I, too, was having terrible times with my sleep. My pdoc added Nuvigil to my regimen because I just could not stay awake. Even on BOTH stimulants I was still sleeping 18-20 hours a day. Turns out I have Lupus and RA and other numerous autoimmune disorders. Anyway, as far as your questions, Adderall is speed. It helps me because I have ADHD and I am on 60mg a day, same dosage as I have been for almost 10 years. The Nuvigil provides a different level of concentration and alertness. While Adderall gives you a 'kick', like coffee, Nuvigil makes things very crisp and clean, (as far as thinking), for me. I am also an addict, clean for almost 5 years. I believe the potential for abuse is always there. It is all about utilizing your medication to heal your mind, and looking at it in a different perspective. If you have any questions feel free to let me know. ~Madcat1776
  2. I think that I am still asleep.

  3. I am really happy to have found this site. It seems like there are a lot of pretty cool people here, people that I can relate to. I am a 41 year old female, and the tags list a few of my diagnoses. It has been a struggle to find the right combination of medications to balance my mind. It has taken a lot of time and work to get where I am today, and I am looking for a few friends that I can chat with and get to know. I really love reading, music, and the beach. Hope to hear from you soon!
