Modafinil Overview

Modafinil, sold under the brand name Provigil among others, is a medication to treat sleepiness due to narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder, and obstructive sleep apnea.[3][7] While it has seen off-label use as a purported cognitive enhancer to improve wakefulness in animal and human studies, the research on its effectiveness for this use is not conclusive.[8][9][10][11] Modafinil is taken by mout...

Modafinil with alcohol

My specialist wants to prescribe me Modafinil for narcolepsy and I'm doing some research into it and its effects. A lot of stuff online says you can't have alcohol if you've taken it. Wondering if anyone has real-world experience of this? Do you need to be as careful as it makes out? Is that an overcautious warning due to lack of research or is it true and it's bye bye Friday night wine? ## I have a friend who takes Provigil and he didn’t stop drinking socially. I would be careful though, I take adderall and I know that it can sometimes keep me from “feeling” the effects of alcohol even though it definitely is affecting me, so maybe that’s the concern? I would ask your doctor though.

Feeling funny hours after taking Modafinil

I recently started Modafinil 200mg 1x day. I've been taking it in the morning to treat my exhaustion from idiopathic hypersomnia. It has been wonderful... however, the last three days I have noticed around late afternoon I begin to feel a bit off. My head slightly hurts, my body feels a bit overstimulated, as if I'm not sure if I want to go lay down or go run a lap, but I definitely can't stand the thought of talking to people anymore. I'm also slightly dizzy. Not head spinning dizzy, but just feel a bit off kilter. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Could this possibly be the effects of the drug wearing off toward the end of the day? I might cut them in half and take one half in the morning and one half at noon like my doctor suggested to help ease me into...

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. However, from what I know, some doctors help their patients achieve this by having them take time off of taking such medications, or by occasionally switching to a different medication for a period of time. 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 ...
