I take Nuvigil, I break off the end of the big dose and take about 3/4. On my day off I only take a half. I worked up to the larger dose gradually.
It helps me to keep up with my crazy busy schedule then get home and have a couple of glasses of chardonnay to wind down.
I've gained over 20 lbs the past year and don't know if the Nuvigil is causing the appetite increase or my crazy job hours.
I empathize with your problems with this because I wish I didn't have to take it.
I see my neuro in a couple of weeks and I'll see what he thinks? I might need a different AD? I don't want to stop working but if the Nuvigil is doing this I don't know that the answer is. I hate unnecessary meds but I still need to work.
