Provigil Trial Again Fails:I'm Off the Team, Rick!

Posted by shellie on July 20, 2000, at 20:44:02

It's official, Rick, I'm off the team. After two days, total tiredness and I'm not willing to push it again. I lost almost two weeks feeling too tired to get any work done.

My pdoc just doesn't think stimulants are going to be the way for me to go, but I have ordered adrafinil and will try that (what the heck) even though I looked back through the archives and saw that its biggest proponent also had a positive reaction to ritalin, which I didn't. (That's you JohnL., if you happen to read this).

Since I have to wait for the adrafinil anyway, I decided I may as well do a quick trial of dexadrine (due to your imput, MichaelF.). So I'll try that this weekend. Oh, how exciting my life was been. Stimulants, stimulants, and more stimulants.

If the dexadrine and adrafinil fail
my pdocs recommendation is to combine nardil with topamax. I had a good response to lacmictal--just gained too much weight--(which came off in the first week I stopped it). Topomax is a bit scary to me, because of the experience of affecting thinking, but I keep reading if you go really slowly on the dose, you may not have that problem. The other choice would be to change from nardil to parnate.

So, I'm not expecting much from my dexadrine and adrafinil trials, but who knows, maybe I'll have a pleasant surprise. (I'm due for one).

Anyway, I enjoyed being on your team, although I'm quite willing to join MichaelF's team or JohnL's team or whatever team will get rid of this depression in my chest.

Talk to you soon, Shellie
