Mar 15, 2010 (Started Dec 05, 2008)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence))
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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.
