been there, done that.....hated it.
adderall gave me what I call a full body buzz.
it felt like I was vibrating all the time. miserable, miserable feeling.
Provigil truly has no ill effects I can see. It gives me a very natural "awake" feeling. It does not act nor feel like "speed" the way adderall does.
If your doc does not want to prescribe it, I would suggest another.
The thing is, my PCP actually sent me to another doc because he did not know that much about it but still felt that was the best next step.
