I'd like to hear your comments on this med? I have also been taking it, on and off, for the last 7 years. I haven't had any problems with it whatsoever. However, I have a new doc and this man is supposed to be an expert on drugs and he's giving me the world's hardest time about writing the script. Just yesterday he sat there saying it's an amphetamine. I happen to be very familiar with amphetamines, and Provigil is not an amphetamine. Then he called it a stimulant, and again I said it is not a stimulant. It simply makes it easier to stay without sleep if you must, such as being a night worker, or if you have a sleep disorder and you get all broken sleep. This is my problem. On many days I can barely stay awake all day without Provigil. It doesn't make me speedy at all. I have also found that if I want to sleep after taking it I can. But if I must stay awake, Provigil makes it a bit easier. But this doc is insisting it's going to be addictive. I did know 1 woman who said she felt speedy from it. But I do not.

I want to hear from anyone who Took it?
