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.
