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.

From this study (3 months ago):
I have Raynaud's syndrome, but even while in the office, my arms feel like they are immersed in ice water; my right leg will periodically "buckle" and wobble at the knee while I'm standing at a kitchen counter getting my food ready; my alarm goes off at 6:30, and about 2 days during the week, I hit the snooze button the max # of times and am late for work
