Started taking Nuvigil 8 days ago. Started with 75 mg (1/2 tablet) and moved up to 150 mg this a.m. Think this will be my last day of taking it though..vision has become increasingly blurry to the point I have difficulty even when reading glasses being able to see clear enough to read, borderline migraines and sore tongue all are listed as side effects. Disappointed because it helped otherwise but I am not willing to lose vision over this drug.

Male 55, post 10 month antibiotics for Bartonella, only other med Liothyronine, trying armodafinil to treat life long ESD, side effects of nausea and headaches subsided gradually, now on 250mg daily morning dose, distinctly improved day time alertness and actually improved night time sleep once initial side effects wore off
Only ongoing problem is a perceived exaggeration of my astigmatism (unclear if that is reality, but that's what it resembles) that makes it hard to work. Occurs like clock work approximately 12 hours after dose. Any information concerning this as a side effect would be welcome, especially information regarding whether it subside eventually.

I take Nuvigil and have found the ONLY side effect I have is blurred vision. It is worse when I take a 250mg. as opposed to the 150mg. I have a job that requires me to work in front of a computer screen all day, and it is so bad at times, I cannot read what is on the screen. I have sleep issues which requires me to take Nuvigil, so I don't want to stop taking it. It is a wonder drug as far as keeping me awake and productive. I find that within 45-60 minutes after taking it, I don't feel like I'm going to nod out anymore. The wakefulness usually stays with me from 4-6 hrs., depending on whether I take 150mg. or 250mg. If only I could see, I'd have no complaints.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i take pristiq and nuvigil together?
I have been on Pristiq for several months due to mood and anxiety issues. After many other issues I was dealing with, my GP and endocrinologist and two specialist at Cleveland Clinic order me to have a sleep and nap study. I was diagnosed with chronic acute insomnia and Narcolepsy during the day.
- Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!

I have had implanon for 2 weeks now and i have been having aweful muscle pains that last all day and tightness of the joints.i feel as if i have ran 10 miles. Getting this taken out of my arm asap. I can't handle the constant pain anymore.
- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Mucinex dm and advil congetstion
I noticed another female with simlar age and side effects; and a third female who in addition was under active thyroid. I have taken both drugs independently and had no problem with them. I am prone to low blood pressure & dizziness due to the thyroid problem
- Prednisone side effects (1 response)
Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
- Libido increase with xyrem (2 responses)
Although it appears by my med list that I am a train wreck, its quite the contrary. Now that my migraine headaches have been controlled by Inderal & Cymbalta and my thyroid is under control, the only thing left to do was to fall asleep at the oddest times, which progressed to not being able to stand while I fought to stay awake. Not good when you have to work.
After multitudes of sleep studies and a reluctance to take Xyrem, it was my only option if I wanted to keep working. Well Xyrem causes weight loss and I was already pretty small and now I have lost 9 more pounds (under 110) and have the libido of an 18 yr old man. I am a woman in my late 40s with a whole lot of children and a full time job. I have been on Xyrem going on 3 months now and if my libido is getting stronger each week. Initially it was only after I took my 1st dose that I had the need for intimacy, but now I sit at work in the mid-afternoon and can not think of anything else. The Xyrem seems to direct blood & warmth to certain regions of the body, much like Viagra does to a man to produce an erection. I have to think about eating not to lose anymore weight, but the urge to be intimate is undeniably strong and extremely distracting. Some nights when I can not get enough I have even resorted to looking at inappropriate pictures on the internet. This is NOT ME!!! I don't do that! My husband's friends are envious, but even he is getting exhausted and sore. The Xyrem may have saved my marriage for now, but I now look at other men like they are all objects for my fulfillment- ewww! I hope my libido dies down some soon because stopping the xyrem means falling asleep at work I will lose my job. Staying on it however, I certainly risk having a fling just because I feel like a nymphomaniac with "I can't get no satisfaction" playing over and over in my head.
