... refills on my provigil per usual I ran out early like 2 weeks early. I managed to get the insurance to agree to pay for it early however my pharmacy said absolutely not they would not fill it until 2-3 days before fill day in accordance the 30 fill amount because it is a schedule 2 controlled substance and then they started inquiring as to why I ran out so early so I made up lie after lie and finally was told I could get some today then the pharmacist said no again and told me "I have said this before not until the 14th why do you keep calling about this" so I flipped on her and she hung up on me fortunately or unfortunately the pharmacy near my house said they would do since I had a prior meds with them and I was transferring all meds to them today but they will not be able to do it again. If I ever doubted before I was addicted to this I don't now when I didn't have it I was agitated big time and crashed really badly I slept 12-15 hrs. a day hubby had to take a day off. And if I doubted the potency and addictive nature I don't anymore considering how much many of the pharmacist refused to release this med. without a doc.'s note and explained to me repetively just how controlled of a substance it is
Glad you are set up with the new therapist and have a psychiatrist appoinment the end of the month. You know the Provigil is addictive, now you have to decide what you are going to do about it. I really think you need to taper your dosage and have your husband manage your pills for you if you can't take without abusing. Your body is very use to the high level of dopamine now and will take sometime to adjust to a normal level again.
Hang in there girl, and consider having your husband manage your Provigil pills.
