I was approved for Aderrall, but learned it was a narcotic. After more research, I see that it is basically pharmaceutical grade amphetamine. A friend suggested Nuvigil, but didn't know if it was a narcotic. I know people on Aderrall and some of them act just like meth heads. One friend went from 195 pounds to 150 in under six months. He's six foot five inches and looks like, well, a meth head. I'm trying to avoid medicine like that. I suffer from narcolepsy and it has gotten worse. Any help about Nuvigl would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
