Working as well as it did at first what other meds are good I tryed the xyrem didnt work right with me in need to know what is the strongest meds I can take to help
I take Provigil 2 200mg tabs 2 x a day. My insurance company is going to make me get off the end of this month but they work very well for me. I take two when I first get up and two at noon. That way I have no problems falling asleep at night. I have been taking it for several years so that is on the high side and you might ask your Doc to start you off at least with one tab twice a day. They come in 100mg and the 200's. It is not a CNS stimulant but is used by people for work shift problems as well as narcolepsy. I think you will find however that no matter what you take for this problem you will build up a tolerance especially if you are using a CNS stimulent like ritlan or adderal...
It took years to get a dosage I could get by with. I take 80 mg of Adderal, 50 mg of Dexstrostat and 7.8 mg of Xyrem. Have my narcolepsy under control as much as I am going to get it under control. In my case the doctor says I am the most severe narcolepsy patient he has. He said in my life time there will never be a cure and that I was functioning probably the best I ever will.
