June 2008 I was diagnosed w/ Mono (at 49!) & a year later I was still suffering from terrible fatigue. Then June 2009 I blacked out while driving. Tests found that I my heart stops beating once in awhile (sick sinus syndrome/ AV block??) so in Aug. I got a pace maker. Then I blacked out again. Sleep study shows I've got narcolepsy too.

I gave it a month and barely go through it! Did have to add 20mg of Adderall to stay awake though. Provigil seems to be the only thing that worked but ins. co. won't pay for it. I think I'll ask if it is possible to take 300mg of the Nuvigil and see what happens. The past 2 months I did the Adderall- hypnogic halluc. come more than before on it.

Comment:
I was recently diagnosed with narcolespy, and started taking 150mg nuvigil the first few days were fine then I was getting tired about mid-way through the day. My doctor increased the nuvigil to 250mg and it was too much! Does anyone else have the problem of stiff neck? Provigil hurt my jaw. I have been taking 150mg and it helps me stay awake but I still get tired.

I have been having episodes of dosing off and having major hallucinations. Tried NUVIGIL, and it worked the very first day. No nausea or headaches so far. I would recommend taking it with a meal/breakfest. So far so good!
