I'm just curious if any HIV Postive person is using this med. If so were there any changes in your in your viral load or your CD4 Count?
Taken 6 years. Absolutely no interference with CD-4 or Viral load values. I take 100mg when I wake an another around noonish to finish out day. Thinking is easier, more energy without any side effects except for dry mouth. No jitters or wired up feelings. Without it I wake up exhausted and remain so all day everyday. The Veterans hospital no longer prescribe due to cost and veterans abuse of it. I no longer have acess to it. I used my Medicare saw Hiv Dr. Mentioned I wanted provigil, she said she will no prescribe barbiuates. I was treated as a drug fein, a druggy. Provigil is a class 4. Very low level.
Instead was prescribed adderol, you should read about the side effects plus it is addictive physically/mentally. Provigil is not. I have stopped HAART . It has become issue of quality not quanity of life. Now oFF HAART for almost two years. VA doctors do not care. Their very last words were , you are going to die without HAART.
Not, let's try some other med until we find something to help offset exhaustion.
If you can get Provigil you are so lucky. I saved for a passport now saving for trip to Mexico to buy Provigil as as a military veteran I can longer have it as others abuse it and its high cost. I hate Hiv/Aides.
