Does anyone take Provigil? Does it work

Just want to know how Provigil works for others? I'm about to start it soon and I am very scared. I don't like to take any meds at all. I have a bad anxiety problem,but fight constant fatigue also,Ii also have ADD so I'm hoping I get improvement by taking this drug. Just really scared about side effets. Please help.

I have taken it in the past. I am now on Nuvigil, which is supposedly the new and improved provigil. Don't notice many side effects as long as I take it early.

My doctor mentioned Provigil to me, but after reading the side effects, I decided to not take it.

Re: Does anyone take Provigil? Does it work

I have taken Provigil on and off for about 9 months or so. First, I did not feel any different. (I have FMS/MFS/CF they all go together) My Rhuemy told me to take one pill in the morning and the other in the afternoon and see if that helped. He also changed me from Cymbalta to Savella. I do not need the Provigil now as the Savella does give more energy. I also take a sub-lingual 2500 mcg of B-12 in the morning. Mind you some days are just going to be tired days and others I feel much better. And we usually go to bed early.

I did not have any side affects. Heck I didn't realize there was any. I guess I didn't read that far down the instructions.
