The Par brand seems good, but other generics have decreased effectiveness or NO effect at all. I end up feeling extremely sleepy and in a fog all day. Now, the pharmacy has informed me that they can no longer order the Par brand. My insurance will only cover generic. I've called other pharmacies in the area, but none carry the Par brand. I hate to waste my money on a generic brand that isn't effective for me. Provigil has helped me live a normal life and I am so thankful for that. What would you suggest?
Have you tried checking with the pharmacies online? I'm not talking about the ones that say they are cheaper, etc. I mean ones like walgreens, cvs, and walmart. Check what kind they carry if you don't have one of them near you. One little hint. With drugs like this, sometimes pharmacies don't give much info over the phone, but if you go into the pharmacies you can get a true answer.
I've taken Provigil for years. WHen it went to generic I, too, found it less effective. My doctor writes for brand only on script and strangely enough my insurance agreed to it. Another option is see if your insurance and doc will write script for Nuvigil which is very similar to Provigil.
