Recently I had a sleep study done to find out why I was still tired the next day even after a good 8hrs of sleep. They determined from the results that I have a form of narcolepsy and prescribed me 150mg of Nuvigil. I also take Lopressor for an anxiety disorder and blood pressure. Will they have any problems mixing?

Hello,

There are no interactions found between these two medications; so you shouldn't have any problems mixing the two.

Both of these medications do however interact with food (if taken with food). The bioavailability of Lopressor (metoprolol) may be enhanced by food. Patients may be instructed to take metoprolol at the same time each day, preferably with or immediately following meals.

Administration with food may delay the absorption of Nuvigil (Armodafinil) without significantly affecting their overall bioavailability. According to the product labeling, Armodafinil's absorption may be delayed by approximately one hour if taken with food. Similarly, the time to reach peak plasma concentration (Tmax) of Armodafinil may be delayed by approximately 2 to 4 hours in the fed state.

I hope this information helps!
