    Hi Gigi,

    I am still trying the Provigil. I take 100 mg. in the morning about 8:00 am and 50 Mg. about ll:30 am. It has given me the energy to at least function somewhat. But, I have to be very careful to pace myself. This means stopping everything when I get tired, which I am right now.

    Also, when it wears off I am completely wasted. I will try to write more later as I am really tired right now. Maybe I will have to take the next 50 mg. earlier today.

    Hope this helps,

    Gretchen

    I had the same problem so my Dr. gave me 200 mg. in the morning and 50 mg. at 2:00. It was finally working but I was so close to being able to function better but just couldn't taste it. My Dr. then raised it to 400 mg and I take 50 mg. in the afternoon only if I need it. What a difference. I have a friend that also takes the higher dose. Don't give up on it yet. LuAnn
