    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.

    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
