    I'm taking Provigil for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is an immune disorder. I've noticed I develop a low grade fever within an hour of taking Provigil. If I take it more than 2 days in a row, I become aware of succumbing to a general feeling of infection, so I make it a point to only take it for important events, at the most once a week.

    Treating for cronic fatigue with my MS. Since I have syarted taking this medication. I can make it though most of the day before I fill like I will drop from exhaustion. I did have to "Play" with the time of day I take this so that it doesn't prevent me from sleeping at night. If I take it around 11AM it seems to work best. After 2PM it interfers with sleep.
