Nuvigil for treatment resistant depression

Nuvigil (armodafinil) saved my life. I've had treatment resistant major depression for over 20 years. Tried so many anti-depressants - most don't help, or only work temporarily. Side effects of others are intolerable. Numerous rounds of ECT haven't fixed the problem. I even tried TMS, which is not covered by insurance - didn't work. A year ago my doctor prescribed Nuvigil and it's given me my life back. Not enough hours in the day to do all the things I actually enjoy. Also able to feel contentment and peace of mind. Unfortunately, I've had to continuously increase the amount to keep it working and now I'm at a very high dose and my doctor won't let me go any higher. I can't find anyone else in the medical field aware of what Nuvigil can do for my typ...

Called my doctor, spoke to a nurse, waiting on a call back. It seems to be calming down a bit, ...

Generic nuvigil

I have been put on the generic nuvigil (armodaginil) 200 mg. I had started a new medicine about the same time and was having side affects of lipitor. I had swelling, sore joints, headaches, just felt awful. I went off lipitoror right away and about 3 weeks later I still feel awful. Has anybody that got put on the generic nuvigil have problems waking up or functioning at all. I'm very forgetful and just want to sleep all day. Doctors/pharmacy said Iit is exactly the same. I dont understand why since I got switched to generic it doesn't seem to work. I'm going crazy thinking this is all in my head. ## Which generic brand did the pharmacy give you? I'll bet anything your reaction is due to that. Even if the dose of medication is the same fillers/etc can influence how your b...

About to wean off Nuvigil

I'll try to be detailed but I just started weaning off Nuvigil so I am very unclear. I became very dependent on this medication and I just need to face the fact that there is no other option. I'm very scared of withdrawing so I thought I would post. ## Hi Tracy, Sorry to hear about your situation. Have you considered talking with your doctor about setting up some sort of tapering schedule that you can adhere to in order to come off safely? I only mention this because, given your description, that's probably what I would do first and foremost if it were me in such a predicament. Feedback in other related threads here have discussed how the withdrawal effects of Nuvigil typically involved symptoms similar to a rebound crash, causing profound tiredness, an inability to concentr...

STIMULATED MENTALLY BUT NOT PHYSICALLY

I take armodafinil 300mg 1st thing, and 250mg 8h later. It's for excessive daytime sleepiness. It's successful in stimulating me mentally - I now have full days instead of half days, like normal people. My body's still tired, though, often feeling worn out and ready for bed. Is this normal for some people? Ideally, I don't want to take a smart drug to stimulate me physically as well. The other thing is that it sometimes makes me anxious - but I do need this dose. I have access to Diazepam, green tea (containing theanine) and alcohol - what's the best answer? Is it correct that Diazepam undoes the effect of the armodafinil, the opposite if you like? Does green tea contain enough theanine? I'd rather avoid alcohol, if I can.

Fentanyl and Nuvigil

Can a patient who's already been on the 37 mcg patch of Fentanyl also take a 150 mg or 75 mg Nuvigil and still be ok? ## Has they both been prescribed for the patient in question? The FDA does warn that both of these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and taking them both could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and drowsiness.

I felt lethargic, anxious, depressed, very tired (slept for over 20 hours on dayone of stopping) does anyone else have this problem.

taking 500mg of Nuvigil

An addiction built up in me at a prescribed dose of 500Mg, My body developed a need for more than this 500mg at this point. lots of ups and downs. can barely function or work. I need it cause otherwise I will fall asleep driving during the daytime, and staying awake in general during the day. i have Obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia. If you have to take this drug do not take more than the recommended dose of 250 Mg. Otherwise eventually you will be sorry you did, like me. It sucks. ## I'm sorry to hear that, and I know this post is 5 months old, but I hope you're doing better.. Peace
