I had another thought, BUT DO CHECK WITH YOUR DOC! Provigil is a strong drug; as far as I'm concerned, it's also a drug with the capacity for de-presonalization, which I HATE. Even before the Thyroid meds, I woke up loagey, apathetic, anxious, but down, loagy. My doc put me on 37.5 mgs of Tenuate (now only sold as diethylpropion); it was first sold as a diet drug, but it failed. It's too weak, but it is a great little boos to morning lethargy, probably less strong than coffee, for all I know, and without any of the anxiety, and it's compounds, it's chemistry is FAR, FAR less complex that Provigil.
