From this study (2 years ago):
The only time the pain is partially releaved is lying in a prone position with heat on my posterior neck and the back of my head. The pain strats in my shoulders and neck and radiates up the back of my head.
Started taking Nuvigil at first did not help me stay awake. After starting Xyrem the Nuvigil was causing severe anxiety and dysphoria. After 6 weeks I told my doctor I could not take this medication any longer. I stopped the Nuvigil and a week later resumed my Vyvanse. I was taking Vyvanse 60mg daily since I was now on Xyrem my doctor and decided to start at 40mg since I was taking the Xyrem and getting the sleep I wasn't getting before. 40mg of Vyvanse is enough to get me through my day without and sleep attacks.
First day of Nuvigil, and immediately having hiccups after first taking it, as well as during short periods throughout the day. Wondering if this will go away?
