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.

From this study (3 days ago):
I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.
From this study (1 month ago):
I also have a pituitary microadenoma and I also have elevated cortisol levels.

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.

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 ...
