About to to start taking provigil and I always get cooled feet when starting a new med. I have heard a lot of positive things about provigil and some negative. I'm not new to stimulate meds I was ok adderal when I was a kid for about 8 years I had very bad ADHD I could not slow down. Then when I became a teenager I devopled CFS just felt really fatigued and lethargic during the day like my body couldnt handle stress and anxiety. I'm 19 btw

Please don't post and horror stories or provigil only positive if you can i have a good feeling like it well really help me out.

Thanks smile

      The page is definitely there the Show is called Victoria Derbyshire (on the BBC) the title of the feature which you want to know about is mentioned and researched on this program it's called 'My Smart Drug' nightmare. It gives you a persons experience and videos from someone who tried this medication. Not sure where your based? It's called by its original name in the Uk. From my experience you should really do some research before you try as the side effects arent the best you need to way up the odds

      It's definitely not there. I don't want to try it; I just wanted to know what the harmful side effects are out of interest. I use herbs for energy, and supplements.

    OMG Jackson,  I had never heard of this drug before but having done a little online research I am going to try to get it myself.  I read lots of positive reviews from CFS sufferers who have used it - many getting their life back and getting back to work! It doesn't work for everyone but it is definitely worth a try. I don't know whether you are in the US or UK but thank you for the information and I wish you well in its use.  Let us know how you get on!
