Nuvigil for ADHD?

My doctor suggested we try Nuvigil for ADHD today because we've pretty much exhausted all the normal options when it comes to other meds for adhd. I guess he's used it before for adhd and it's worked wonders. I can't find anything about using it for adhd, so I was wondering if anyone has heard of it?

Re: Nuvigil for ADHD?

I don't see anything about Nuvigil being used for ADHD, but as it's a stimulant, it has the potential to work. I see that Nuvigil is used as treatment for Narcolepsy, which is the other disorder that Adderall is used to treat.

I certainly think it would be worth a shot, especially if you've exhausted the other options.

Re: Nuvigil for ADHD?

yea I looked it up and it's mostly used for fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and narcolepsy. I <read about> successful adhd and depression uses. Like you said, worth a shot.
