I might be the wrong to person to ask that question because I have relatively mild narcolepsy & can fall asleep so easy if I'm not actively doing something. BUT I also have ADHD, so when I do things, it can often seem like I'm speeding to others, even without any stimulants.

Two speeds, either barely idling or maximum over-drive :)

The Celexa, if anything helped me to be a little more awake, but that may be because it improved my mood over Paxil & I wanted to do more. Celexa (with the small amount of Paxil) & my thyroid hormone replacement isn't enough though to keep me awake & alert at quieter or less energetic jobs though. I've now augmented my meds with adrafinil (Olmifon) from overseas & now can stay awake & alert any time without feeling a little too wired or jittery like Ritalin or Dexedrine do for me.

I wouldn't really have thought that those two made me wired until I've had the opporunity to compare how I feel on adrafinil as compared to them. The adrafinil brings me an alertness & wakefulness that stims did but with a calm & mellow feeling that's level all the time - no ups & downs.
