I have been given another pill to take by another Dr (saw a neurologist this week). I am hesitant to take given all my past problems taking various meds and the fact that this was our initial vist (how can he know enough about me to suggest a med after one visit and no testing yet?). I give him credit he did give me a lot of time and asked a lot of questions (spent toooo much time emphasizing diet and avoiding gluten since he thinks I am Celiac even though my blood tested negative for Celiac (other tests seem to indicate possible Celiac), he was not high on blood test being a definitive test for Celiac, said SI biopsy the only sure way to know). So I would like to have a thread on Nuvigil for now and those who may be looking for info in the future. Here are my questions? 1. What was your experience if you took Nuvigil? Positive/Negative/No effect or side effects 2. What amount were/are you taking? 3. Why were you prescribed Nuvigil? That is all I can currently think of to start the info gathering process. Here are my answers: 1. I'm just starting it today, will report back 2. I was prescribed 30 pills @ 150mg (I am cutting in half due to past med sensitivity) 3. I reported being tired during day, that I have sleep apnea (I was told by Dr that this would give me daytime energy and it would be out of my system by bedtime and not interfere with sleep (told him I'll believe that when I see it - I have become a very skeptical cuss). What I dont understand is why is a neurologist prescribing this and not my sleep Dr???. Well about to take my first 75mg and putting on my lab rat persona.
