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
