I am brand new to this so I hope I am doing this right... 
Has anyone tried Provigil?  I have been taking Cymbalta for a bit over a year.  I really think it has helped with my anxiety and depression.  Now that winter is here, though, I am having a really hard time waking up and getting out of bed, no matter what time I go to sleep.  I am also having problems concentrating during the day, which is causing major problems at work.  I have been reading up on provigil and am thinking of asking my doctor to try it.  Does anyone have any input?  Thanks a lot!

I took provigil for a while but I had problems with the side effects so now I take adderall. The provigil works well for energy, it is just that it gave me a sore throat, cold sores and diahrea. Other then that it worked well. It is worth giving it a try. Not everybody gets the side effects.
I do like the adderall, I don't take the time release, I take the generic. It is a lot cheaper. It keeps me going through most of the day and I can think clearer.
Another option for you could be abilify. It isn't a stimulant but does give you energy and makes you feel good. I don't take a lot because it got overstimulating and I couldn't sleep.
I hope that this helps you,
Good luck,
