Has anyone tried Zenzedi or Sunosi?

I am struggling trying to find relief from excess sleepiness, focus, motivation, etc. not diagnosed as narcolepsy - yet. I've tried Vyvanse, Ritalin, Focalin, Adderall , Provigil, anti depressants, and combos. None have provided substantial benefits. Anyone? About to start Effexor.

Sorry. No experience with those meds. Ritalin works well for me. Hope you get the meds that works for you.

I was on Effexor a year ago and it worked for me for awhile and then not so good. Unfortunately I became very agitated towards my boyfriend and life in general. It did help me stay focused. I stopped taking it because of the agitation.

I hope you find something that works for you. I'm still struggling with finding the right medication.

I’m on Zenzedi 20 mg, I use it as a booster to Vyvanse when I know I’m going do work in the evening. Or I take it on days that I want to take a break from the Vyvanse. It works good last through out the day, definitely a good 4-6 hours hours, you don’t feel a drop from it. If I do take it and need a boost, i take a half pill to get through the rest of the day. I find that i usually don’t have to. When I do take it in place of the Vyvanse it’s on the weekend.

TY - very helpful!

my grandad used to say "there"s a pill 4 every ill! " c"mon leave the chemicals alone, use what u already possess man, getout of that chemical need and try to home into yr centre if u can and i say this with max concer.n ,i guess


I can tell you one thing for sure. You should try Nuvigal. It is great to get you up and moving and I know that it is used for Narcolepsy. Ask your Dr. I mean it!! I think you would like it. I can’t believe they didn’t try that already. Good Luck!

TY I did Provigil with zero results.

But Nuvigal is different.

I have a great suggestion. Try Nuvigal. It works great for me. Keep me posted if you try it. Good luck! 👍🏻

Nuvigal is different from Provigal.

Have you tried vyvanse and provigil together? You can also replace provigil with Nuvigil, which is a stronger version of the same med. Vyvanse stopped working for me years ago and I currently take mydayis 50mg and Nuvigil 300mg (1.5 200mg pill is how I get to 300mg) on the mornings I actually get out of bed.

Cool, will do - Thanks!

hi! i know this thread is a little old but this may be of help to someone—i recently started sunosi and so far it’s worked wonders for me. not experiencing the extreme side effects i had from adderall and other stimulants, not as anxious or uncomfortable as armodafanil, but i’m finally feeling alert enough to do things i’ve been neglecting for years. i can make myself meals again, clean again, and focus in classes. only downside is a bit of nausea in the beginning and occasional heart palpitations/anxiety—but in my opinion it’s totally worth it!
