> Why would Provigil do nothing? I could feel nothing. Or, maybe I felt some fatigue. Is that possible?

Yes-it is possible. When I first took provigil at 100 or 200mg just on occasion I got a little mood lift and if I was sleep deprived it did help a little. As I took it more often and after trying it at higher dosages I noticed that I just felt...kind of stoned or flat. Glazed over. No lift in mood, clarity or alertness.

Don't know what the two drugs share in common but I have this same issue with Wellbutrin.

At the 75 or 100mg dose it's just great, subtle but real improvement in mood. At 300mg I was just..Flat is the only way I know to describe it..souless and without dimension.

It took me awhile to figure out that it was the WB making me feel despondant like that (duh) Honestly, that was the first time I had ever been close to suicidal. Ritalin-while swell at first does this same thing to me.

Corafree, I'm sure you are upset about your partner leaving but I think that you will feel better after the provigil is out of your system.

Also-just a thought-but the Lyrica is not a drug that permits me to half-*ss it. I either take it every 4-6 hrs. and at the amount my body requires (which varies) or forget it! I will be in withdrawal. I am not looking forward to getting off Lyrica because the w/d I have experienced is a pervasive "I suck, you suck-everything sucks" feeling coupled with just wanting to lay there tired and weak feeling.

Also my face swells up.
This is one way I know if I am not taking enough of it. It is a noticeable chipmunk cheeks type of edema.

> I was feeling better before I began E-XR. And yep if had to say how I felt on Provigil .. I'd say I felt more fatigued than I already am.

I sure hope you are feeling better.
