I have searched for 25 years for something to help me function and feel like a normal person and have found it with provigil. I only have social security to live on. I am on medicare with a drug plan and need other drugs before using provigil so cant get this drug.i have depression since my husband was killed in car accident in 84, have sleep apnea/c-pap machine, cant sleep except during the day etc.and life is miserable without provigil. Cant understand why i have to live like this without the drug that can help me... no way can i ever afford this and guess its just for people with lots of money... sad... so sad.
