  • Perceived effectiveness for Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence): Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all

  • Perceived effectiveness for Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence): Moderate

Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Worked well in conjunction with Provigil
Cost: < $25 monthly

Mar 15, 2010 (Started Dec 05, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence): Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: since some people were taking this for sleepiness AND some people were also taking Provigil and I was already on Provigil and doubling Provigil DIDN'T help improve my somnolence or narcoleptic-like episodes, I asked the neuro to try the combination and together they are helping tremendously. I STILL get the extreme fatigue and if I don't check myself I can still fall off sort of asleep but it's not the instant out like it was and I have more energy longer into the day now. WITHOUT it I couldn't cope. Without BOTH, I'd be bedridden.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It's good to start out with it to see how you will do on it. My doctor said it's pretty much the lowest rung in terms of fatigue medicine. It does help to figure out how bad your fatigue really is. Don't be disappointed if it doesn't work for you and you still feel the same.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Blotchy skin
