Advice & Tips: I had to wait about a month to get this drug approved. I only use it for the shorter winter days. I usually start about Oct 1 to April 1. I had a choice between modafinil or armodafinil. I used armodafinil and it didn't keep me alert and non-drowsy as I had remembered from earlier usage. I didn't like it. Next winter, I may ask for modafinil.I am not working now, so I may be able to rely on the Rytary and Amantadine to keep me from being drowsey. Maybe my reaction to all the drugs have changed?

Advice & Tips: Nuvigil helped with wakefulness during the day. I used it becasue Cymbalta caused sleepiness. Nuvigil does not produce tremors. Does not produce a "let down" feeling when the dose is used up. This is expensive if you don't have insurance. If you do, it's like the cost of a caribou coffee evey day, withouth the tremor.
Cost: $100-199 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for fatigue)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for multiple sclerosis)

Advice & Tips: Make sure you refill and take this on schedule! Miss a day or two and you will feel how much you really need it! NO JOKE! It does work, don't trust me- miss a day or two then take it... You are on a two three day "crack high" of non-stop wakefulness... House is clean, lawn is mowed, and your neighbor's weeds are pulled... So not a good idea! Medication has a discount program to save you money.
