Modafinil ( Provigil) Update

After taking Modafinil for two weeks I thought I would give an update as promised,.so far I've had no side effects and the results are really good , although it hasn't cured the fatigue compleatly it has helped considerably . I would say out of 7 days I get at least. 4 really good days and boy does that make a difference hope this helps x

  • Hi Kieraferret,

    Do you take the generic for Provigil? The reason I ask is that my Dr. put me on a months trial of Nuvigil and its brand name only. The patent was getting ready to expire on Provigil and so the makers came up with Nuvigil to stay ahead of the game.

    Anyway, I suspect it's probably very expensive and since they are chemically similar then I may want to go with the generic Provigil instead. This is my second day taking it and I do like it so far, but the downside of the first day was it kept me up til 2am. I usually stay up til 11 or twelve most nights, so not too bad.
