    In addition to my other meds and supplements a year or so ago I got to try Provigil and from the very first pill it was like everything that was turned off in my brain turned back on! I can get through my day without a nap and the feeling of just extreme exhaustion. I just wondered how many others had tried it, and who got benefits and who did not. It did not work for my daughter who has CFS like it did for me. I had tried stimulants like Adderall before, which just made me feel *weird*, and lots of meds work opposite or I have an allergic reaction. But this was like magic. :)

    Hi, I have CFS and have tried Provigil. It didn't work for me. I took a nap on it when I was really tired. Also. it made me sweat badly. I gave up on it. Sorry. Hope it works for you!

    I have a friend that has taken it and she also didn't find it helpful. But I have read on other boards that there has been good luck. I think it just depends on ones body chemistry like so many of these drugs we try and take. If anyone is interested in trying this medication you can look here they talk about coupons available for it. With the differences I have read here and other boards on how people react I would save money when I can. I am not sure about samples I didn't see a page for it. But you can ask at this page I have asked them questions in the past and they have been a lot of help.
