I've had extreme fatigue for the last 15 years. It started after I was diagnosed with Mono and it never went away. I would take a nap any chance I got. After work, I would come home and fall asleep. If that was not possible, I would lay around with no energy to do the needed tasks. I negated my duties as a wife and mother and did the minimal amount. It was an extreme sacrifice to do anything ...

I have been on Nuvigil highest strength for at least 5 years. Initially it helped a lot. This past 12-18 months it has been no help at all. Speaking with doctor about alternatives

Brand nave Nuvigil works better for me than generics. Usually I don’t care if I do anything at all during the day but with Nuvigil I’m just up and about within 15 minutes. No motivation ended. The generics however seem to not kick in as heavy making them noticeable and easy to fight off. The generics also wear off sooner leaving me in a warm fuzzy feeling.
