From this study (1 year ago):
I suddenly have an aversion to foods I love, and most food tastes like ashes, even if I can eat it.
From this study (2 years ago):
I'm wondering if I need to take Potassium supplements and, if so, how much.
From this study (5 years ago):
Since I started taking Provigil I have been very happy as it is very effective for my hypersomnia, and my ADD - I feel motivated and have focus which I was lacking for years. However - every now and then I get a bounding pulse, severe anxiety, I get startled easily, I'm hypersensitive to noise and loudness, it feels like I go into abnormal heart rhythms, and I get very dizzy. My muscles also tighten everywhere - especially my neck and back. I get a bad headache and become very paranoid.
For the most part it works well, but every now and then I get those side effects which are miserable.
