I hope you don't click on this post hoping to see a list of studies done on this. I think it's far too new (Provigil usage, I mean) to see any studies yet. I'm going to e-mail Dr. Ivan who posts here occasionally & ask him what he thinks.

Anecdotal experiences can get one thinking but I don't rely much on them - having a scientific bend, I want to see hard facts & credible, well-controlled studies too. I ran a little low on adrafinil a few days ago & cut back on my dosing. Interestingly, I found my long-time SSRI disonctinuation/withdrawal symtoms showing up again. Things like swinging my head quickly to one side to look at something (checking traffic or turning towards someone) made the vertigo feeling come back & I noticed a few, mild brain zaps again. Seems the adrafinil does something good for my brain chemistry that either 1) prevents the symptoms from happening, or 2) masks the symptoms so that it they happen, they're too mild to notice.

Cam, if you ever come across any more of the pharmokinetics of Provigl (or adrafinil) would you e-mail them to me, or let me know on this forum? Anything on brain scans on either of the meds would be interesting too. Part of my interest is simply because I can't stand not understanging something that interests me & the other reason is my ADHD working a topic to death. :-)
