Advice & Tips: Provigil has helped me to stay awake for longer periods of time. When there are days that I am totally exhausted, I can fall asleep even though I have taken the proper dose. I also find that this medication effects me differently on different days, sometimes it keeps me awake, sometimes I can fall asleep even though I've taken the proper dose, and sometimes it makes me hyperactive and I can't sleep all day and all night.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
