Terri (2 years ago):

I am a 24 year old, female with ADD and my psychiatrist recently prescribed me to Nuvigil. I have found myself much more focused, alert and have been told by colleagues they have noticed a huge improvement in my work and ability to stay on task! I feel this medicine is great and has done wonders for me with no side effects! I suffer from anxiety so this wAs a big concern for me. Gratefully, it has not affected my anxiety at all!!! I recommend this medication to anyone with ADD looking for alternative medications than the usual.
