My Modafinil prescription is not affordable and now I have to detox from it

I had been ordering Modafinil with the permission of my Psychiatrist for 5 years with no problem from 3 different overseas pharmacies. Last week I got a letter from U.S. Customs telling me they seized the most recent package, and I would be fined and federally prosecuted if I was caught doing it again. Now I have to go off of it. I have two weeks left. I heard the detox is terrible but my doctor said to just stop it. I have no choice. I have no where to get it. So I am advising one thing and asking one question: Please don't think you can't get caught buying drugs overseas! Be careful and think it through. I was lucky with just a warning! My question is has anyone ever detoxed off of 200 mgs. Modafinil twice a day, and what was it like? ## Nobody thinks they're going to get ...

Namfill 200 (Modafinil)

Hi There - I filled my Provigil prescription but received NAMFIL 200 instead. Searching around does not reveal much except that it is manufactured by a company called Naman Pharma Drugs. Does anyone have any experience with this medication? I fear it could be the wrong medicine. ## I have taken Modafanil for over 5 years and i have never heard of "Namfil 200". Even as a substitute for Provigil.

Generic Modafinil, Provigil (brand) or Nuvigil Experiences

Hey all, 1. Anyone tried varying generics of Modafinil? Which ones, and did they work? Anyone tried brand Provigil (super pricey!) as well and can compare the two? 2. Anyone try Modafinil or Provigil and also tried the considerably cheaper brand Nuvigil (or even generic Nuvigil; please specify which generic). Did they affect you differently? How so, especially in terms of mood, motivation, energy, wakefulness, and task initiation (the latter for ADHD people). How long did it last, and how much longer than Modafinil/Provigil? Please include what doses were optimal! The full story: I have severe ADHD and severe excessive daytime sleepiness since childhood and adolescence, respectively. Perfect physical health otherwise. ADHD meds help many of my ADHD symptoms, but do nothing for my fatigu...

modafinil / provigil

Looking for the cost of this drug and is covered under your drug card plan. ## My insurance is ignoring my doctors prescribing pro vigil then modafinil (generic) for 1 in am and 1 at afternoon if needed! I had 2 refills for 2 months, and only refilled for 30 pills, instead of 60 as prescribed! I asked pharmacy how much the 30 pills they denied me would cost if I would pay since I had a month before I had an appointment with my psychiatrist. I was told it would be $875.00 for those would cost me out of pocket! I was shocked, because these helped me for the last 2 years! I am 80 yrs. old! My thinking is so much sharper with pill, and other antidepressants always made me sleep especially during the day! I would appreciate an answer or response! Thank you for your help! ## Kimberly, I am so...

i have to stop modafinil ALMOST cold turkey what should expect 4 - 200 mgs pills per day

I have 30 pills left. Will weaning myself off 4 - 200 mgs, Modafinil cause me a lot of problems? I can't go into a rehab for personal reasons. ## Hello, Candy! How are you? A very slow taper would be best, if you've been taking such a high dosage for a long period of time. According to the FDA, abruptly stopping a stimulant, such as this, could result in some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness, chills, fever, drowsiness and diarrhea. Withdrawals can, sometimes, be dangerous. So it is best to be careful and get professional medical help. Is your doctor aware that you are stopping them? ## Hello Vernon, I'm dealing with a positive attitude and that's the best I can do now. HOW ARE YOU? I am doing what you suggested--slowly tapering off of them. My Doctor said ju...

I believe that the key is in CYP3A4, but i am not a neuroscientist. Some suggestions? THANKS ## I am also not a doctor or neuroscientist.

Doing this helps prevent your body from building up a tolerance to it. Learn more Modafanil details here. Have you tried any of the other stimulant medications? If so, did you have an...

Hydrocodone And Modafinil

Can Hydrocodone and Modafinil be taken together? ## Hi Fred, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Hydrocodone and Modafinil. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. In conclusion, these two medications are regarded as being safe to take together and shouldn't present any problems outside of the normal side effects associated with each medication. I hope this helps to answer your question! ## What about Oxycodone (Roxycodone--I should say, without Tylenol) and Modafinil combined? I am taking them both for three years and haven't had a problem. Does anyone have a comment about this. The Roxy is a lot stronger than the Hydrocodone for ...

Modafinil manufacturers

What reputable manufacturers the product Modafinil? I get my prescription from Walmart but I hope it's not being manufactured in China. ## The MedsChat drug information page on Modafinil notes that it's a product originating from India. However I'm seeing that there are a multitude of brand names stemming from a variety of other countries as well. A full list can be viewed here: Modafinil Details. NOTE - Scroll down to section 9, titled "Society and culture". The list of brand names and their respective countries can be found just underneath it. I hope this helps! ## I recently took Modafinil and am not feeling the effects that I did on another manufacturer's version of this product. Has anyone else had this experience before?

I'm very sorry about the problem that you had. It sounds like you may be allergic to this medication. Had you ever taken it before, or was this first time you've taken it? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and nervousness. ## I have been taking modafinil for three years now. Rite aid recently switched me to aurobindo brand, and I have felt like I'm taking a placebo ever since. Do you know what I can do to get a different brand?

I am now tired constantly from pain but wake many times from pain and having to urinate. What do you tvhink of it used for severe pain sucking life from me. Thank you, Theresa ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? Modafinil is a stimulant and is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, according to NIH reports. Thus, while it is used to treat some of those conditions, it isn't used for pain, it is used for the fatigue that can occur from those conditions. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and insomnia. It w...

can this be modafinil

can a generic modafinil 200mg be round, white, scored on one side, no numbers/letters..? ## Hello, John! How are you? There are no U.S. prescription tablets that do not have markings. Imprints are required by law to enable their identification, in case of emergency. If it has no markings, it is most likely just some type of over the counter product.

Modafinil Teva

Is the generic Modafinil produced by Teva gluten-free?

Minor interaction between Modafinil and Fiansteride

Is there a way to avoid the minor interaction? "finasteride oral will decrease the level or effect of modafinil oral by affecting hepatic/intestinal enzyme CYP3A4 metabolism." Both use CYP3A4 enzymes. I'm thinking if one was taken 12 hours apart from the other, the CYP3A4 would be more readily available? Thanks. ## Hello, Craig! How are you? What I'm reading from the FDA says that it's the Modafanil that affects the Finasteride, decreasing its level and/or effect. However, it is considered to be a minor and insignificant interaction that isn't a concern. Thus, it would be best to continue taking them as prescribed by your doctor and on the dosage schedule they've provided. Modafanil is classified as a stimulant that's used to treat conditions such as ADHD...

Where Overseas can I find Modafinil?

I was given a prescription for Nuvigil, then Provigil, and my Insurance denied both of them. My Doctor prescribed it for Treatment Resistant Depression, which is Depression that has failed to be controlled by many (for me about 20) combinations of anti-depressants and then anti-psychotics and anti-depressants. Also, treatment failed for me by having 4 Electro Shock Treatments and then a Vagus Nerve Stimulator implanted in my neck to send waves to my brain to help the depression. I was still not functional. The doctor said to look into ordering Modafinil overseas. I called the FDA and was told this was legal as long as my Doctor had it documented in my records. I found a place and when I started treatment on Modafinil, my depression was lifted to the point where I was able to do things f...

modafinil and clonazepam and levothyroxine

I have REM sleep disorder, with mild narcolepsy, for which I take low doses of modafinil and clonazepam. I also have Hashimotos Disease, for which I had a partial thyroidectomy, and take thyroxine hormone replacement. Do any of these interfere with my blood pressure, causing it to fluctuate, and my throat is starting to sound hoarse when I sing. Should I be concerned about the hoarseness when I sing, and do the drugs cause my blood pressure to fluctuate? Thank you for your help. ## Your blood pressure always fluctuates, it will never hit one set of numbers and remain there. It will vary depending on what you eat, stress levels, activity levels and etc. But the Modafanil can cause blood pressure elevations, since it is a stimulant. It can also cause elevated heart rate, nervousness and i...

Is Modafinil now approved by the FDA for a certain type of depression?

SWIM told me that Modafinil has now been approved by the FDA for Refractory Depression, also called Treatment Resistant Depression, which would then be covered by Medicare Part D. This type of depression has certain things that a person has to have gone through in order to be considered having it. They are multiple combinations of Anti-depressants, or Anti-depressants and Antipsychotics and Mood Stabilizers without any success in helping the depression, which since 1983 Psychiatrists have had me go though without success. The second is the patient has have to have gone through Electro Shock Therapy, which hasn't helped me either. The last one is having, through major surgery, a device called the Vagus Nerve Stimulator implanted somewhere between my left underarm and breast and broug...

I'm sorry, but this website does not manufacture, prescribe nor sell any medications, it is an information only website, so there are no coupons available here.
