My dad was prescribed nuvigil for excessive sleepiness. I've been on every antidepressant imaginable for disabling depression and have not seen results with any of them. My dad suggested I try one of his nuvigil to bring me out of my slump and give me energy. Wow! It erased my depression completely, and gave me energy I didn't know was possible to have. I feel alive for once in my life and I love it. However, its not normally prescribed for depression but has off-label uses treating debilitating depression. I don't feel high, I just feel good. How can I convince my doctor to prescribe it to me for this reason?? Answered by Cory Cubbison 3 months ago.

I have excessive daytime tiredness from sleep apnea and take Nuvigil. I used to take Provigil before Nuvigil was out. I can testify that Nuvigil is much cleaner, quicker and smoother onset and seems to wear off smoother than Provigil did allowing me to sleep at night easier whereas Provigil would sometimes give me a really wired feeling. I also take Pristiq (which has also been surprisingly very smooth and very effective for me). I can definitely tell that I get better relief from the dysthymia when I take both versus just Pristiq. There is also research that shows this synergistic effect from taking Provigil/Nuvigil along with an anti-depressant. So, I do not doubt your experience at all. But, what to do about it? You need to talk to your doctor and explain your experience. Also look around on the internet for more information about nuvigil and depression and build a case to your doctor as to why you should try this. That is if that is needed, I personally have a doctor that will let me make suggestions without just shooting me down. Also, have you gone to a sleep clinic? I ask because there is some evidence showing that apnea is genetic. You may have it and not even know it and quality of sleep will also definitely help fight depression. Going to a sleep clinic and getting on CPAP treatment has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. One final word, you will need good prescription coverage if you go on Nuvigil. It is expensive and the company that makes it has hiked the price on Provigil in order to get everybody to switch over before Provigil goes generic in 2012 (maybe it was 2014). I bought it for several months and it was $370/month. With pretty good insurance it is $65/month and I had to get it approved from by my health insurance company.

How much for fatal overdose on Nuvigil?
Ok, thanks, I've heard that 250mg of Nuvigil is equivalent to 500mg of Provigil, by using those numbers is it possible to find out the amount needed for an OD or would that be completely inaccurate? Asked by Demetria Gionta 3 months ago.

The recommended Nuvigil dosage for treating excessive sleepiness due to narcolepsy or sleep apnea is 150 or 250 mg, taken once daily in the morning. For people with shift work sleep disorder, the recommended dose is 150 mg, taken about one hour before the start of the work shift. There were no overdoses reported in the NUVIGIL clinical studies. Symptoms of NUVIGIL overdose are likely to be similar to those of modafinil. Overdose in modafinil clinical trials included excitation or agitation, insomnia, and slight or moderate elevations in hemodynamic parameters Answered by Rubi Abood 3 months ago.

Community guidelines won't allow me to answer this question with a question, so I won't ask the obvious. But it has been addressed in the previous answers. It also says on the answers blog that this is a place where people make suggestions, give advice and share knowledge. So, here's what I have to share with you: Since you have access to lunesta or ambien, I would suggest asking the person that has these sleeping pills this question. If it is the prescriber, then HOPEFULLY you're much deeper problem will be addressed. If the pills are a friends or family members, then HOPEFULLY, they will talk to you about this suicidal idealization. If you go to the store to buy OTC drugs, HOPEFULLY, you will have stopped and thought about your loved ones before making any final decisions. Nothing is put on our plates that we cannot overcome.

Answered by Galina Zysett 3 months ago.

Lol, it's been a while; hi there. :) Let's see...Nuvigil? All drugs have side effects; but sometimes they can be psycho-sematic; meaning that your body or your mind does it on purpose because of some weird or odd reason. Ex : You love a new food you're tasting, but then you find out what's in it and you get sick to your stomach. It's not because you hate the food, but because you learned something you have a negative reaction to. You might be anxious because you're taking the pill, rather than the pill itself. As for Nuvigil in general, under it's "excessive" side effects, irregular and intensely faster heartbeats are a side effect listed to the drug. Mood swings into chronic anxiety follow that symptom as well. I'm not a Psychiatrist, and I don't know you SUPER well (I've been sent all your questions this summer/fall and we talked a little) , however it'd be up to you to decide if it's just "you" or the drug. If it's the drug, you should probably contact your doctor/prescriber if the issue persists. Given that you already have a history of Social Anxiety, taking a drug that amplifies that can be extremely dangerous. Anything else, just let me know :) It was nice seeing you post again! ~stephen out~ Answered by Luis Lonero 3 months ago.

My doctor recently switched me from Provigil (200mg) to Nuvigil (250mg). Supposedly, the Nuvigil is supposed to have less side effects, but ever since I've switched, I've noticed some things. I get so hot and sweaty that I drench my shirt! It's horrible. I'm having headaches and stiff neck - it feels like my neck muscles just tense up a lot after taking it. And I'm getting almost manic. Will these side effects go away after a while? Has anyone else noticed these kinds of things? Answered by Vaughn Ricardez 3 months ago.

I found Nuvigil 250mg had a more powerful and longer lasting effect than Provigil 200mg. However, if I had the side effects you're reporting on Nuvigil, I would switch back to Provigil in a heartbeat. Don't keep taking the medication if its giving you a stiff neck, sweating, mania, etc. Call your doctor's office tomorrow and let a nurse know about your side effects.

Is nuvigil a depressant or stimulant?
Asked by Karine Huhn 3 months ago.

Armodafinil (Nuvigil) is a stimulant-like drug produced by the pharmaceutical company Cephalon Inc., which was approved by the FDA on June 15, 2007. Armodafinil is an enantiopure drug consisting of just the active (−)-(R)-enantiomer of the racemic drug modafinil (Provigil). While it acts like a stimulant, it's pharmacology is different.

How to get a prescription for nuvigil?
Or Provigil. Same thing. Asked by Kiersten Maturi 3 months ago.

I know Nuvigil is for people with narcolepsy, but I keep having to pull all-nighters or nights with little sleep for my job. this may sound dumb, but as an adult newly on his own, can I just ask for a prescription? My business buddies recommended it to me, and it seems like it could help a lot. How do I go about getting this drug? Answered by Gonzalo Robin 3 months ago.

Go for provigil if you get it, it is cheaper and is almost the exact same thing as nuvigil and works just as well. Yes you should just talk to your doctor about your problems and how you think this drug can help you, just keep in mind it is a controlled substance and is fairly easy to become dependent on, so don't use it unless you really need it. Answered by Marilou Gruse 3 months ago.

Its been approved by the FDA to treat night shift related wakefulness issues, so you should be able to simply ask your doctor and explain why. Answered by Kurtis Gawlas 3 months ago.

Can someone please tell me whats going on! FYI I can't take stimulants do to my addiction history with stimulants. Does anyone know why Nuvigil stopped working? and what others suggested for wakefulness oh yes I should mention I can't take provigil either because my health insurance will not pay for it. Please, please help give me advice or info on these concerns it would be very much appreciated! Answered by Carmel Westlie 3 months ago.

I've heard several times of Nuvigil and Provigil not working when the dose is increased. Strattera will often increase the effectiveness of Nuvigil or Provigil. So will Effexor, Wellbutrin, and Vivactil. Might be a good idea to go back to 150 of Nuvigil and keep taking the Strattera. Answered by Venetta Tuell 3 months ago.

Asked by Stefania Woltz 3 months ago.

About 2 years ago I took Zoloft for about two weeks (for anxiety) and became manic depressive as a bad reaction to the medication. It was quite a traumatizing experience. Since then I have had some health complications, specifically Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Narcolepsy. My doctor has prescribed Nuvigil (armodafinil) for the narcolepsy. While doing some research I found that nuvigil is a Dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor which is Zolofts primary mechanism of action. Should I be concerned that taking Nuvigil will cause me to have another psychotic episode or is the connection I'm making between the two irrational? Any insight would be appreciated, I'm really suffering with the OSA and Narcolepsy, but nothing outweighs the psychotic terror I experienced on zoloft. Thanks. Answered by Eleanor Kerstetter 3 months ago.

Jacob... Zoloft is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), not a dopamine reuptake inhibitor. People who take an SSRI and develop mania, should be put on a mood stabilizer first before complimenting it with an SSRI. The Nuvigil will help you with mood instability, and your reaction will be totally different than with Zoloft. Just work with your doctor on side effects. If you are going to have a negative reaction, it usually with be within the first few days. Leave him a voice message if the side effects seems severe. Every person responds so individaully, but there are so many medications to try. Just continue until you find the right medicine mix/dosages that serve you well. I would also take B vitamins to help with the narcolepsy. Take care, Chip Answered by Erin Sheffer 3 months ago.

I am not a expert on these drugs, but do know a young man who was taking Zoloft and stopped and had a seizure. I don't believe you have epilepsy, however sometimes when you have one seizure you are more likely to have another and are placed on anti seizure meds. I know this from personal experience. I do not have epilepsy either. Your seizures, in my opinion, are caused from the drugs. An EEG will put your mind at rest. You may need anti seizure meds though. I did, and I was glad to take them.

I've been taking Nuvigil 250mg for a few days for ADHD (Adderall was giving me 3-5 spontaneous nosebleeds per a day) and I've been having moderate spinal pain, an occurrence of conjectural hemorrhage (aka "red spot") on one eye near the bridge of my nose that lasted appr. 3 days, mild aching of the legs, queer feelings of euphoria, and mild to moderate headaches. Other details: 15 years old. Living in south Alabama. Temperature recently dropped 10-20 degrees, air has been dryer accordingly. I haven't been eating as often because I never get around to it (busy focusing on studying, etc.), I had some sleep problems the last two nights (couldn't at all 1st night, and 2nd night: fell asleep around 2AM, got up at 6AM), and had a few mild visual hallucinations (things moving in Peripheral vision, probably caused by sleep deprivation). I consume about 100-500mg of caffeine, average of about 150mg, via coffee or Mtn Dew. I occasionally take multi vitamins. Please either confirm that Nuvigil could cause this, or try to explain what else could. Answered by Luise Kurtzer 3 months ago.

You are taking a lot of stimulants. You probably need to either cut down on the caffeine or the Nuvigil, but taking all that stimulant could be causing your sleep problems. Check your blood pressure. Cut down on the stimulant. Get some sleep. If you're still having all these issues, check in with your doctor. Does your doctor know you're ingesting all this caffeine? Answered by Gavin Mordecai 3 months ago.

I am no longer a trained on those medications, however do understand a tender guy who was once taking Zoloft and stopped and had a seizure. I do not feel you've got epilepsy, nevertheless typically if you have one seizure you're much more likely to have yet another and are located on anti seizure meds. I understand this from private enjoy. I don't have epilepsy both. Your seizures, personally, are precipitated from the medications. An EEG will placed your brain at leisure. You might want anti seizure meds although. I did, and I was once comfortable to take them. Answered by Yolanda Mavai 3 months ago.
