Is anyone taking Provigil for PP pain?

I've been taking Provigil for over two months and find it very helpful although it has not been approved for this purpose.

What is anyone else's experience?

Thanks.

Boy, if it helps great.... I have not been dx'd so I am kinda in the middle- I take Ibprufen for pain and it really doesn't help....

So whatever works that is great.

Good Luck
Janet

i started taking it several years ago (100mg/day) for loss of focus with depression. the first thing i told my doc was that my pps pain was diminished, no one had any idea why.

at one point, wasn't taking it, that constant pain came back.

then i remembered and started again, and wham, the pain is alleviated.

no one knows why; it's not in the literature anywhere.

so glad to hear that someone else has had this experience.

WannaDance,

I see that we live in the same state and city. We also have polio in common. I got it when I was 3 1/2 months old. I am a granny of 2.
