Hi, yes, I did start out taking provigil first. It worked ok, I don't remember but for some reason, I didn't take it every day, I think because maybe I got a headache and I thought it may have attributed to it?? On a routine visit to my rheumy, we talked about how I'm not sleeping then so sleepy in the morning, so she told me that there was something new out Nuvigil and she wanted me to try it. From the first day I took it, I noticed a major help. I take it as soon as I get up I eat a little something with it, just so I won't have to worry about any tummy trouble, may not do that for anyone, or even me, but just do it as a precaution. Then I start to get ready for work, by the time I am out of the shower, I'm good to go. It lasts for me about 7 or so hours I would like if it lasted a little longer, but I could take it a little later I guess. But I really like it. I would get so sleepy before I would have to take little naps in my car for about 15 mins or so sometimes because it go so bad. Try it, and let me know how you like it. Hope it works out for you.
It's Sunday evening and I have had a really good weekend. Its sorta strange, I know the pain is there sorta, but I really don't feel it like before, if you know what I mean??? I just can't believe what a weekend I had, just going over to our friends house with my husband and chatting with the girls for a few hours, before no way would I have been able to do that, I would of pretty much been in bed all day exhausted from the week and in pain. Hope you all had a great Resurrection Day!!
