Funny... Adderrall caused extreme agitation and depression with me.

Provigil I actually felt was almost soothing. Maybe I just went up to fast. Actually, yes, I did go up too fast. I didn't even think about the fact that starting at 400 mg isn't appropriate.

I think I can handle 400 mg eventually, but throwing it right at myself was risky! I'm going to call my doctor's office Monday.

I'm calling for my Xanax refill, which I will mention is not helping control my anxiety at the moment, to the point where I have problems breathing (I hope we don't start thinking asthsma here and throw some inhalers at me... I don't have asthsma). I tried cutting down on the Provigil and then stopping it altogether. It didn't help with the anxiety, and was also too tired to get through the day. Increasing the Xanax helped, but I don't have enough to do that. Could you ask him what he thinks I should do?

Hahaha, I should just leave messages that are as short as posible to make sure it get's to the doc correctly. However, I'd like to add that on a positive note... the Provigil has helped immensely. I'm able to get through the entire day without needing to sleep and feel well. I'm sleeping all through the night now and don't always need to take the Lunesta.

This is my way of saying... way to go doc! You really helped me and I'm making great progress. Soo... how about doubling the Xanax and become world's best doc? He might go for it since he know I can't see him for another month. He's actually seeming to be overly cautious. Doesn't ask too much about the Xanax and anxiety, just is very willing to give it to me if it gonna give me a chance at life. In these times of high stress, they really should do so... you never know when I might just start having recurrent full blow panic attacks, drop out of school, or when someones thinking of suicide (not me!)
