- Aggression with law enforcement officers who use provigil
I'm a former police officer. I say former because on the second day of ever taking provigil, I flipped out and kicked a handcuffed arestee. After 10 years of being an award winning police officer I totally lost it after taking this drug. needless to say, I immediately quit taking the pill; however, my career is over. Has anyone ever heard of something like this happening? Do I have any rights?
- Idiopathic insomnolence (1 response)
In 1997 I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy with an intolerance to Dexamp(hetamine) tablets.
After 3 years of nose operations, and sleep tests to remove other potential issues (lung problems or apnoea) I have finally been re-diagnosed (2013) with idiopathic insomnolence.
Modaphinil caused a reaction of insane nausea, pains behind the eyes, dizzy spells, with no real change in blood pressure.
Dexamphetamine was erratic (on recent retrial) with extremes causing dizzy spells and slow progressive drop in BP over 3 weeks from average 125/75 to 105/60. Occasionally it would wake my body up but my brain would be slow to follow, and the conflict would take me to the cleaners for the next two days.
I was diagnosed with IgAN in 2004, and have progressive idiopathic neuropathy in my feet since 2011.
The sleep specialist wants me to try Klacid (clarithromycin) as it has reportedly caused insomnia on a regular basis. I've not yet agreed.
That's me in a nutshell.
To many idiopathics and drug rejections.
Somebody has not got their finger on the pulse, but no idea who yet.
Jus thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone else is having difficulties aswell.

From this study (5 years ago):
Extreme fits of rage, much like I had before starting on Effexor XR, dizzy feeling I get when I miss a dose of the Effexor or take it later than normal, but I have done neither, feels like worms crawling in my scalp, and I get angry at drop of a hat over nothing at all
