Chronic fatigue and depression - Provigil
« on: May 19, 2007, 12:33:04 AM »

After suffering for many years from both chronic fatigue and depression, I finally feel well for the 1st time in my memory! I have been reading a lot about Provigil and it's usefulness in treating both chronic fatigue and depression (the latter that doesn't seem to be quite well alleviated by traditional antidepressants). After talking with my psychiatrist, I was put on the meds (200mg - divided into to 100mg doses - taken upon waking then again at 2pm). I finally feel like I've rejoined the human race, after years of feeling awful!

Besides having my energy back, my sleep patterns have improved drastically and I have no signs of depression since beginning the medication. I can't believe that this is really true!

There's a study going on in NYC re. Provigil and its use in treating HIV+ persons, who suffer from chronic fatigue and depression. If you Google: HIV Provigil, you can read about the study and possibly participate, if you don't live too far away from NYC. Otherwise, talk to your psychiatrist: it's worth it!

All my best,

J. H.
