... another form of birth control?
Sorry no one ever responded to your question. Nuvigil can affect the efficacy of the birth control. The warning reads as follows:
Patients Using Steroidal Contraceptives
The effectiveness of steroidal contraceptives may be reduced when used with Nuvigil and for one month after discontinuation of therapy (SeePRECAUTIONS, Drug Interactions). Alternative or concomitant methods of contraception are recommended for patients treated with Nuvigil and for one month after discontinuation of Nuvigil treatment.
So I would be safe and use a back up form of birth control while on and for one month after discontinuing Nuvigil. Unfortunately, this is a little late in coming so maybe totally useless now, but I thought I would respond anyway.
