Is Provigil addictive
I don't normally post over here although I am a recovering addict and I also have chronic pain so I am usually on that board. I do take pain meds(fentanyl patch/Percocet/Lyrica) although they were never my drug of choice, Itake them as prescribed, and have never abused them. My d.o.c was "crack-cocaine" but here is my problem. I have A LOT of fatigue, tiredness, problems being alert while being on these pain meds. I have to constantly try to counteract the effects by drinking tons of coffee which I hate doing, I really don't like the taste of coffee. I have even thought of taking caffein pills in order to just get the caffeine without all the sugar. So I have been thinking about alternatives. Obviously not going back to crack. The only other half-way decent option is a drug called Provigil. I would like to know if anyone on this board currently takes it or if anyone has tried it? I also want to know if this drug would set of my addiction?
