> I was on provigil for a few months, and after kicking in w/in the week, it worked well for a couple of months, then pooped out on me entirely. I stopped the Provigil, and now, a few months later, I can take it and it has the same robust effect it had earlier for me. So I just save it up and take 1/2 to 1 tablet on days when I can use the boost in energy and cognition. Looks like that's the only way I can benefit from modafinil.

I believe modafinil induces the enzyme which metabolises it, so if you take it chronically larger doses are needed than the initial dose to achieve the same level of the drug in the brain. I think it plateaus after a while.
