Comments for this study:
WW (3 years ago):
Initially my psych put me on Nuvigil to enable me to remain alert and awake during the day. I suffer from very bad insomnia. (diagnoses- major depressive disorder and PTSD) I've taken Provigil in the past, it appeared to also help with depression. Yesterday I overslept and decided not to take my Nuvigil fearing it would keep me awake even later than usual. That was a bad mistake, I haven't felt that depressed in months. I took my Nuvigil this morning and the morbid depression is gone. It may not work for everyone but it works for me. I haven't experienced any adverse side effects. I wish it would enable me to lose the extra weight I gained after taking Abilify for a few months. Talk about depressing!
