Nuvigil is not the same or better than provigil. I know by exsperience it is far less effective than provigil. I think its a crock of crap that they are manipilating the patients that need the medicin, just to pad their own pockets, while the people who need it cant get it. Insurance companys are refusing to pay for it since Nuvigil came out and they jacked the price of provil up so the insurance companys will make you switch to nuvigil. Im so sick of the phamacuticl companys and the government allowing it to happen.

Cephalon, that drug company that's always in a hurry. Oh, yeah. Provigil had been on the market for over 8 years before Cephalon got around to notifying the FDA that it had 'just discovered' that Provigil AND Nuvigil both cause (no pun intended) delayed drug hypersensitivity syndrome and had probably killed hundreds of people per year.

I used to get Modalert from after I realized that Provigil or Nuvigil are both so expensive but they are same drug. Using it good!!

Indian Provigil from works great. I was diagnosed with MS at the age of 29 and had severe fatigue for 2 years prior. I started on 200mg which was way too strong so I cut the dose into 100mg. I find that if I take it everyday it is not as effective so I just take it when needed which ends up being about 3 times a week (I work full time in a sort of stressful environment).
It is important not to "over do it" when on Provigil. I have to say that Provigil changed my life. I am now able to spend time with my boyfriend in the evenings after work and also see friends past 9 PM and not get fatigued. I do feel that when I drink on Provigil I get very I try and stay away from drinking. I do like how it helps me mentally focus and also have energy to exercise!

The dangers which Provigil and Nuvigil present to its new users are real, profound and potentially fatal. You should also understand that you are not in the clear if a day or even a week has gone by without any noticeable difficulties. 7 weeks into my daily encounters with Provigil my doctor increased my dosage. 2 days later I was lying in the Emergency Room, in cardiogenic shock with a 72/40 BP and near death. Look at the stats on , the largest side effect reporting site on earth. And make up your mind.

Mark -

Take 2 x 200 mg caffeine tablets at about 7:30 PM and i'll bet you get a therapeutic effect akin to Nuvigil/Provigil for getting past 9:00pm 1X 200mg might do it.

RE: Nuvigil Vs. Provigil....Provigil, a blockbuster profitable drug, has been one upped by a pushed thru approval for another CIV stimulent. The reason- The desire for more profit to fund both the new insurance inititives, AND the highly sought after generics that will soon be out. Viagra for one will become generic soon. That is if congress in closed session extends the patent for a promise of insurance coverage for those uninsured and further research. Generic Viagra is available from other areas. The FDA wouls have you believe you might get adultrated or merely ineffective Viagra. The fact is reimportation from third world counties are a fact of business life.
