Modafinil headaches - do they go away?

I must've taken 50mg Modafinil (Provigil, Alertec) for about 5 days in total (during a course of two weeks) and each time I got a very strong headache after the effects started wearing off. I got a very strong headache as I posting this too, haha. I never took more than 50mg of Modafinil but even 50mg gives me a headache that lasts all day (starts at about 3pm if I take it early in the morning).

Does anyone know if that side-effect should subside over time? I would really hate to stop Modafinil just because of the headaches, as it is helping with a few other problems really well.

Re: Modafinil headaches - do they go away?

I never had a headache. I take it when I can get it. My doc last gave me rx for seven Provigil100 mg pills and I'm supposed to use 1/4 pill per day. I find I need 1/2 pill to get me moving. The other half of the month I sit around trying to figger out what project I want to start work on. When I take the pill I will tackle honey do lists until I'm exhausted. The pill makes my mind go but my body can't always keep up.
