Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • ***comments for Modafinil only*** I do not mix my meds. I take only 1 med a day however it is prescribed. The Adderall and or Ritalin only last 3 or 4 hours and it's not worth taking. I've been on the natural supplements all my life and except for occasional kidney discomfort I have been thankful that I've had them. I also used to take ephedra when it was legal and it was very effective for my condition.
    The muscle spasms started about 3 weeks into taking the meds. Extreme pain. I didn't know at the time what was happening. I know I didn't do anything physically to cause such a degree of spasms. I went online and discovered all 3 meds can cause it so I stopped for a week and the spasms stopped and slowiy the pain dissipated. I need these meds especially the Modafinil. It does the best job I take the 200mg once a day. I took one Sat. and today is Mon and I took one this morning. My shoulder is becoming sensitive and I know by the end of the day I will be very uncomfortable so I will skip 3 or 4 days before I take it again. Is there anything I can do other than what I am already doing? I don't want to take Flexoril or muscle relaxers that totally defeats the whole purpose of taking the Modafinil.
