Thanks for the response, and sorry for the delay in responding (computer problems). I appreciate your sharing your experience and views with me. I will discuss both with my pdoc and see what his preference is. I'm flexible, but do need something to help with the apathy and amotivation I am experiencing. I am exercising daily and eating well and doing all the right things, but I still feel flat and blah - not really depressed but not my usual go, go go.

Anyway, thanks again.

However, I'm having an issue with its lasting ability - I do well until about 2:00 pm on 400mg in the morning. Then I start to burn out. We're trying adding even more Provigil in the early afternoon (I'm skeptical about this, won't go into why here) and if that doesn't do it we may augment with...Concerta. So, perhaps using both works best sometimes. But I would give Provigil a try.
