Anyone on Nuvigil?

My Neuro just gave me some samples of Nuvigil to try for my fatigue. I guess Nuvigil is the new form of provigil. I am ALWAYS nervous about taking any drug. What can I expect, does it help, Does it make me jittery and nervous, naseated? Any help is appreciated. I am such a big chicken about taking meds.

Re: Anyone on Nuvigil?

I was given nuvigil a few weeks ago. The first 2 days all was well, by the thrid day I felt nervous, dizzy and tightness of the chest( more then normal I have MS hug all the time). I stopped taking it until I see my Neruo in December.

Hope it works better for you.

I just started it 5 days ago and it has done nothing for me. I was hoping this was going to me my little savior from fatigue. And nothing, I think I could lay down and go to sleep on it. I'm so let down.
I hope it does better for you.

Re: Anyone on Nuvigil?

I take provigil as needed. A trick I learned was to get a pill cutter and I take a 1/4 of a pill in the morning. If I need a kick at lunch another 1/4. I got to jittery on a half or whole pill and when I would accidently drink a diet coke, I could run 10 miles!!!

Good luck!

Re: Anyone on Nuvigil?

I take half of a 150 mg. tablet. It really helps me with afternoon fatigue. I take it very early in the day but I still have alittle trouble falling asleep some nights. I don't take it every day. But if I know I'm going to have a hectic day I take it. I love it!!!!
