Being excessively sleepy is new to me, so I discussed it with my dr fairly quickly when I was experiencing not being able to stay awake, low energy and irritability. I was on Provigil, but it left me very tired in the late afternoon. Nuvigil is better, but still sleepy around 4pm.

Nuvigil is not as effective as i would like it to be. I have to take a back-up medication to help keep me more alert. Although, i have seen improvements while taking this medication. I am more awake taking it as opposed to not taking it. I have experienced insomnia while being on it as well. Life style changes are necessary while taking Nuvigil.

Comment:
Nuvigil works wonderfully on my extreme fatigue experienced as one of my most debilitating symptoms of my fibromyalgia syndrome. Nuvigil immediately provided me the energy to perform daily tasks without the monumental "mind over matter" I usually deal with. My rheumatologist put me on 150 mg. However, much to my dismay, I have experienced the most common side effects listed: headaches (s ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have a lot of trouble sleeping at night, and suffer from extreme fatigue. Have had a sleep study test done, and no sleep apnea, but do suffer from restless leg syndrome. I have been on Nuvigil 250mg for about 2 months and love it. I have so much more energy and have even lost some weight because of increased energy. Got headaches from it when first started it, but they went away after a few da ... Show Full Comment
