I am having problems paying for Provigil. If Nuvigil is less pricey I would like to switch and try it.

I take Nuvigil and can tell you that it is very pricey as well. Fortunatley I have insurance so I have only a small copay. Nuvigil is an improved formula of Provigil though and has less side effects supposedly. I find that it does the trick for my symptoms of hypersomnia very effectively.
Sorry I couldn't tell ya the exact cost difference, give a couple pharmacies a call and get some price quotes.

I have taken both Provigil and Nuvigil.
Provigil is extremely expensive and always has been. I am waiting for it to go generic so that the price goes down.
Since I recently had rotten insurance, I was advised to get Nuvigil because it is about 1/2 the price of Provigil. I don't know why but it was and thus, I am now taking Nuvigil.
Yes, for now it is the cheaper drug.
Wait for Provigil to become a generic drug!

As of 2 months ago Provigil was $1,000 for 20 pills. Today my nuvigil was $600 for 20 pills. Luckily since it is new my Doctor gave me a card for a free one month supply. In my opinion... I have tried both meds. I cannot stay alert, awake, nothing. I pace excersize. Do yard work. Work. Still no sleep. I can only sleep well if I take 4 to 6 mg of xanax. No doc in the right mind wil give me it. When I was on adderall I took 80 mg IR during the day. 40 to 60 mg am. Then a 20 to 40 at noon to avoid heavy crash. Come night time I slept like a baby.
