> > Hi Lynne,

Andrafinil is a drug that I was introduced to about 3 years ago. My past experience is thus: Week 1 - It had a dramatic speed like feel to it.
Week 2 - Amphetamine like feeling stopped. The drug no longer appeared to be working.

Not understanding the mechanism of how this drug worked. I became frustrated and gave up on it too soon. Andrafinil takes weeks and sometimes months for its full effect to be realized. Please note: I never felt drugged or sedated. To me, this would be an indication that this is not the right drug for you.

Presently, I am not feeling any effects from the andrafinil (at least not that I'm not aware of). I am only into my second week of andrafinil. If its going to work, it will need more time to do its job. Since I am combining it with the amisulpride, determining exactly what effects the andrafinil is having may be difficult.

I hope this has been helpful. What is your history and what meds are you currently using?

I hope to post everyday around 4 PM to keep everyone aprised of my day to day trial with amisulpride.


The first week that I took andrafinil, It felt like speed. It had that nervous edge to it that usually occurs with amphetamines. That feeling soon waned and into the second week, no effect was felt.

> I could not wait to read your post today. I am disappointed that Amisulpride is making you drowsy.Hopefully it will go away. How did the Andrafinil make you feel when you were just taking it? It made me drowsy and feel like I was on drugs.I hope this drug will work out for you. My thoughts are with you.
