  • You have to see a doctor every year before you can get a new prescription. And there might be limits for how long they can prescribe it (i.e. 6 months at a time).

    Narcolepsy
  • Push through the side effects during the first 1-2 weeks (nausea, loss of appetite) and it'll be worth it.

    How long did you take it?
  • I have been taking Nuvigil ever since I began experiencing the excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy, with which I was diagnosed five years ago. The most important point about this medication is that its most common side effects of headaches, feeling jittery, and nausea are at their worst the first two or three weeks of first trying it. However, those side effects, at least for myself, lessen significantly thereafter and eventually disappear altogether.

  • It gives me pressure headaches. I assumed it was something I developed on my own but realized after stopping the med that symptoms went away!

    Excessive sleepiness
  • I actually take 1/4 of a pill because 1/2 a pill made me feel like I was TOO present & that I might vibrate through my desk. Really helps cut the fog of sleepless nights. Great for days when I have to drive 5 or more hours. Great on days I need to get a lot of focus work done.

    Just as needed
    Sleep apnea
  • Be positive it may work very well for you. I was very disappointed that it didn't for me.

    Excessive sleepiness
  • For me the brand name worked well. Only hassle was getting it approved by insurance. Worked great for my EDS. However, unbeknownst to me, the generic came out and I was put on it. The generic form (Mylan version) did not work for me. Took 2 weeks of breakthrough EDS to realize it was due to the change to generic. Insurance does not cover brand name, so in the end, Nuvigil is a big tease. Knowing it is out there, but cannot have it. Wish I never knew it was there.
