Recently diagnosed hypomanic bipolar. Questions about meds especially Provigil

I'm new to all this as I was only diagnosed 5 weeks ago. My psychiatrist went on a 2 week vacation after perscribing provigil. I was on Seroquel, Lorazepam, and Depakote to bring down the mania. I'm not depressed at all. I was off work for 5 weeks because I couldn't function with all the panic attacks and racing thoughts.

The other meds worked to calm my nerves but made me too sleepy to function. I have to go back to work in 2 days so she gave me a sample of Provigil to try to see if it will fight the drowzyness from the other meds. The first day I tried it was 2 days ago and I felt like I was on speed most of the day. The second day (yesterday) I felt great. Not over tired and not wired. Today I'm really nervos, the racing thoughts and panic feeling is back. I'm not sure if it's because of the provigil or if I'm just stressed about going back to work. (Very stressful job) Anyone here on Provigil while manic and having increased manic symptoms?

Is it just me or does it seem weird to give a stimulent to soneone who's manic?
