Provigil A For Fibro Fatigue
Provigil is a drug used to treat narcolepsy (sleeping sickness}. Some doctors have been giving it to Fibro patients and it worked great for me for my Fibro tirednes and Fibro lack of concentration. It acts like a stimulant without the side effects of stimulants. The problem is, Provigil is so expensive, 9 dollars a pill. Most insuance companies will not cover it. Well good news. The patent on Provigil is ending and soon their will be generic Provigil. The company that makes it has come out with a replacement called Nuvigil. When I called the company to ask them what the difference is between the two, they couldn't give me an answer. Like many drug companies, they changed the formula a little and claim it is a new med, thus being able to charge 9 bucks a pill again.
So for those Fibro suffers who could not afford Provigil, there will be a generic version out very soon.
