Has anyone taken this for fatigue and had it work for 3-4 days and then stop? My doc doesn't have much experience with it and I'm trying to figure out what this means. I started at 100 mg, which worked ok for about 4 days, then stopped working. I just doubled the dose, but only getting a little push in the morning, then getting sleepy in the afternoon. Some people say it takes a while before it starts to work. My doc said I'd know in 2-3 days. Not much solid information available. I'm trying to figure out if I need to stick with it, and if so, how long to keep trying.
The recommended dose for Provigil is 200mgs taken in the morning or one hour before the work shift if taking for that. It won't last all day, not uncommon for it to wear off after 8 hours or so. I recommend a different medicine that is a newer version of Provigil called Nuvigil. I take it and it does the trick for 12 hours and it has better time release in the system. I still drink my cup of tea in the afternoon but I really like the Nuvigil. The recommended dose if 150mgs once a day and you can go as high as 225mgs. Might want to check into it if the Provigil doesn't continue to work.
