I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so my Doc prescribed Nuvigil. It worked wonders. For the first time in 20 years I felt like living. I could finally accomplish my house chores. But after 2 weeks I broke out in hives. I read that taking Valium increased chances of side effects. So I'm wondering if there's a good substitute for Nuvigil or if I used a different anxiety pill instead of Valium would I not have side effects? My Doc tried me on Adderall but it made me nervous and angry. Please I hope you can help me in some way. For me it's a huge accomplishment just to wash a few dishes. I can't worh & I feel like such a huge burden on my husband though I'm fortunate he understands.
