Modafinil

There are methods to avoid the neuro-adaptation of the brain to this drug, so as to avoid increasing the dosage whilst still having the same effects of the drug. I believe that the key is in the cyp3a4, but don't know how it works. ...

Is the generic Modafinil produced by Teva gluten-free? It contains pregelantized starch, but I can't find any information about the source of the starch. ## I also couldn't find any information that has more precise details.

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.

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! ...

Provigil (modafinil)

Is this used for treating a cough from leukemia? ## You can see the page on Provigil for more information about this medicine... ## I personally tried this drug and I feel no doping effect after taking it. On the contrary, I felt energized and more focused. This is in contradiction with the World Anti-Doping Agency which prohibits the use of Modafinil. Actually, FDA approved the use and intake of Modafinil as a drug that enhances wakefulness, mental energy and focus. ## I have recently been given a generic brand of provigil that is football shaped and has 200 MG on one side and APO on the other. The label has APTX2 as the manufacturer. I have been taking modafinil for quite a few years for chronic fatigue and hyposomnia. This brand is not even close to being worth taking. I'm curiou... ...

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 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? ...

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.

Modafinil (Provigil) has helped me

I have been using Modafinil (provigil) for a little over a year now, I work a night shift and it's hard for me to adjust back to the living world on my days off until a buddy told me about modafinil. It has really changed my life, I am no longer a Zombie on my days off and it really keeps me focused on the many projects I work on on my days off. How has your experience been with this medication? ## Hello, Wizarddrm! How are you? I'm glad that this medication is working so well for you. Many people have found it effective at helping with shift work sleep disorder.

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? ...

Liver Enzymes Raised by Modafinil

I have major depression, which is only one out of 4 Mental Health diagnoses I have that disabled me since 1985. The major depression is resistant to treatment. I have been on so many combinations of anti-depressant, anti-psychotic and mood stabilizers that my Psychiatrists in the past and the one I go to now, did not know what to do. About 5 years ago, as a last resort, I was put on Provigil as a way to help me get motivated and not be depresses. I now take high doses of Modafinil, and my AST blood level for my liver is 40 (should be 10-35, and my ALT is 134 (should be 6-40. My Psychiatrist, PCP, and I have agreed that in my case, where I could do nothing for myself, had countless suicide attempts, and hardly ever got out of bed, quality of life is a priority--not quantity of life. I wa... ...

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... ...

Hello I am looking for a free trial of modafinil thank you ## Hello, Greg! How are you? 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.

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... ...

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... ...

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... ...
