CNS stimulants, Ritalin, Adderall, Provigil, dextroamphetamines, even mixes of them just dont work. I broke my leg, was prescribed hydrocodone 10- 325s. I had never felt so awake in my life since Narcolepsy! I am 47 and was diagnosed when I was 23. It was an amazing feeling! I could stay awake for a movie, or car ride! I could just " stay awake"! No fast heartbeat, or crashing! No anxious feelings. They were truly a blessing.
