I started taking another armodafinil. It has the same effect but I have only ever seen it in 150mg tabs.
Your description of the efficacy is spot on although I would say that the initial dose has the most impact, simply because you aren’t expecting the effect to kick in so quickly and noticeably. Like wearing glasses for the first time and being able to focus. Subsequent doses still work but you know what to expect and aren’t quite so startled each time.
I agree with taking the earlier the better to avoid any low level headache.
The next phase for me is to introduce a nootropic gradually and see if the two magnify each other.
I have been taking Nuvigil for almost a year now. I have sleep apnea so bad I dont get enough sleep and before I started taking Nuvigil I had a car accident. When my doctor found this out I was put on Nuvigil immediately. The bad part is the company who makes this drug could care less about how much this drug could help many people. All they are interested in is the amount of money they can make off it. People like me who it is almost a life or death situation to take the drug cant afford it. It cost goes up and down. A 30 day supply has cost me monthly for only 30 pills from 500.00 to 600 hundred a month. I have been doing all kinds of research to find a drug similiar to this. I can not pay this redicilious price for a drug I despertially need and so many people are in the same position as I. I think it is a sin for this company not to be no more regulated than they are on price. It does not cost that much to make that drug. Just a bunch of money hungry wolves, that money one day wont even matter. HOW SELFISH I WOULD BE ASHAMED to do people that way. One day their time will come.
As to cost- there are “coupon” websites that are linked to discount cards and show prices by pharmacy. GoodRx.com website. The lowest came out to $13/pill. I am talking about participating store pharmacies like Kroger, Cvs, Walmart, etc. Still a lot of green for a month supply. My brother is prescribed them for MS related issues 3x250mg daily. He recently (since BCBS) insurance won’t cover it, tried switching around medicaid providers/services and has ended walking out with 90x250mg provigil/armodafinil for $0.00 dollars! That’s right $0.00. Somehow it got covered 100%. Since ins. denied it, medicaid had to have picked it up.
I have taken armodafinil sporadically in the past and recently decided that I should try to take it on a regimen as indicated. When I began to take it on the regimen, after the second day I really began to notice a great deal of clarity and an increased ability to concentrate for extended periods. (otherwise not my forte’). I notice things such as my poor typing ability due to shaky hands and neurological damage has suddenly ceased to be a problem. Nerve patterns firing. I don’t miss key strokes and am picking up speed every day. What was difficult now seems easy. My vision has returned to 20/10 and 20/20 as it was years ago. I feel I want to seek out people to converse with, socialize. Again, I typically keep quiet and to myself. Anxiety nullified. Another change. Even some of my sciatic foot and leg pain are reduced. This frees my mind as severe chronic pain can consume your mind and cause total distraction and an almost inability to think about anything else. I even forgot to take my pain meds. Provigil, after it builds up to a steady level in my system, seems to produce all manner of positive effects. Aside from the physical, I could go on about how I tested this by taking IQ tests and merriam-webster challenges suddenly being able to respond with answers so much quicker that I frequently rank #1-#4 on the leader board. I never before was able to exceed 10th-25th, now #1 on the first two days taking provigil? Amazing! I am currently exploring to find other ways to detect any improvements or differences so that I might put this to people in a more succinct and coherent manner. Keeping a log of everything I notice. Understand, I am not saying that the pill has made me any more intelligent/smart. It has simply taken away many of the hindrances to my realizing my full abilities which have deteriorated over the years. Tomorrow, if I ever want to go to sleep tonight, I will try a comparison of memory function tests-now vs. past results. Again, the pill can’t make you smarter, but it seems to open up your door to reaching full potential. Makes my dexterity more precise, my thinking,response time and decision making faster. Didn’t really start to kick in until my second or third dose except for reducing my anxiety quickly. Positive effects, increasing…keep you posed if you are interested. 250mg upon waking, 2nd dose early afternoon, 3rd after dinner, but only if I want to stay up half/all night! or need to since I trade Forex 24hrs a day. Maybe I will see some improvement in my trades…let you know.
