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 still have intense fatigue daily, but taking more Provigil makes me too jittery and no sleep at night.

After taking Provigil 200 mgs for a year I find it not working for me.I could take one and go back to sleep for a couple of hours.However I cant fall asleep at night until about 2 or 3 am.Would there be a problem if I just stopped it?
