    Adrafinil (Olmfon) or Modafinil (Provigil) for ADD

    Does anyone have any experience about either of these two for treating ADD?

    Provigil is new and primarily prescribed for Narcolepsy and excessive daytime sleepiness. Adrafinil is similar to Modafinil but is not regulated in the US (can legally be imported).

    I always felt like my ADD is due to me being tired all the time, as it is usually accompanied by irritability and drowsiness.. I'm not manic or hyper. Doctors say I have no physical reason to be tired and until they pinpoint the problem, refuse to prescribe me anything including Modafinil.

    Wondering how these drugs work for ADD. Some reports are impressive, others report no major benefit..
