  1. Greetings, My pdoc is switching me from Adderall XR 30 mgs. to Nuvigil. He's doing so because the Adderall doesn't seem to be working for me anymore. I also have extreme fatigue and lack of motivation to even get off the sofa. I've fallen behind on everything (i.e. house is a disaster, laundry is piled up like never before, etc.) so I'm in high hopes this switch will be a positive one! If anyone has made this switch, or has any positive experiences regarding Nuvigil to share, I'd greatly appreciate hearing your stories. Thanks, in advance! ~Craziness
  2. I just started Nuvigil yesterday (200 mg in the morning) and after about an hour or so after my first dose, I noticed the onset of a very bad headache (not quite migraine quality, but pretty close to it). I've taken Nuvigil before, but only when it was brand name, and I was on 250 mg. Now I have generic made by Aurobindo. Has anyone who has taken this medicine experienced this?
  3. Hi everyone. I’ve been bouncing from one trial of medication to another for the past 4 1/2 years with adverse reactions. Nothing has helped. I just saw a new psychiatrist on Monday. An older gentleman who actually seemed to listen. He was also a longtime professor our local university. My symptoms are treatment resistant insomnia, chronic, severe anxiety, chronic derealization, ocd (pure o) racing, intrusive thoughts (often presenting as songs looping in my head, but a switch can also go off in my head where I obsessively think about something to the point of it driving me crazy) brain
  4. Hi guys, I saw a new pdoc recently, and I related to him how I frequently sleep for 20-50 hours at a time because of depression, but he thinks there may be more than just "bipolar depression" causing my body to sleep continuously without interruption for such absurd amounts of time. He recommended the potentiality of stimulants - Adderall, Provigil, Nuvigil. I have absolutely no experience with stimulants! All my meds have always been downers. I have friends who take Adderall and they believe it helps with their depression and bad thoughts. So I got some (haven't seen my regul
  5. I take Nuvigil for fatigue first thing in the morning and Klonopin for anxiety soon after, but I'm trying to find out if anyone had advice on good timing for taking these two. Nuvigil usually takes about an hour for first feelings of effect, and I take with food (or I get bad stomach gurgles). I haven't quite figured out the best timing for them to both work at their best (w/o) interfering too much. And advice on dosage is welcome too. I take lower doses than prescribed to maintain more of a hold on how the medicine is working (and potential negative side effects).
  6. I am curious if there is any interaction between these drugs and ketamine infusion

  8. Though I came up surrounded by close family members who struggled with various mental illnesses, I wouldn't say I had an especially traumatic or even a really remarkable childhood, apart from the sporadic, sometimes episodic fireworks Crazy can bring. On the whole I had a pretty typical middle class upbringing, for which I am grateful. My older sister served as my introduction to the mysteries and miseries of mental illness. She suffered from Bipolar Disorder, and it was clear my parents despaired at her condition. There was much acting out, at least one suicide attempt that I am aware of, mu
  9. Here's the deal (not to sound harsh): You can either lecture me or you can help me figure out what to do as psychiatrist wasn't much use. Also its a long story and I can't edit well right now. Diagnosis: Depression, GAD, lack of focus, OCD. Drugs: Klonipin, Paxil, Lamictal, at night. Nuvigil and a small dose of Klonipin in the morning I am a student who lives on campus and goes home for the weekend to work (long story). I was rushing around getting ready to go home earlier than planned on Thursday and was trying to clean up my room while packing. Late at night on Thursday after coming hom
  10. I've had some weird hypersomnia-esque thing ever since I was a preteen. I don't know where it came from, but it's been bothering me my whole life. Hey, I just thought I was a really tired teenager with a fucked up sleep schedule. I was, but, you know, I thought it was normal. Recently, my p-doc saw that I had an issue and referred me to a sleep specialist, and I went and saw him, did a sleep study (twice because the first time i didn't sleep enough because I forgot my tylenol PM) and I went back to see him yesterday. Turns out I have very mild sleep apnea, I'm talkin incredibly mild, and the w
  11. Hello, I'm new on this. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Cpap doesn't seem to help. Sleep doc put me on Nuvigil which sounded great at first. Started with 1 125 mg pill. I never really felt any more awake on this stuff. I just feel like I wanna scream my head off and punch the living $hit out of something(I have done both these when no one was around. I feel like complete $hit). I'm a mellow person but nuvigil is making me feel really agitated, really aggravated. I was loudly cussing in my car today because my phone rang. When I pass someone on the street I think to myself "what an a$$hole" f
