Coming off Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) abuse- self medicated fatigue problem. Would something like provigil be a bad idea?

Coming off Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) abuse- self medicated fatigue problem. Would something like provigil be a bad idea?

Probably: But another solution would be to talk with your psychiatrist about switching to a slow-release, once-daily stimulant like vyvanse, Adderall xr, concerta, Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) xr, or their generic equivalents. Taking one a day, you would then be able to lower the dose with time. Provigil will likely offer you no benefit and may worsen the effects of stopping adderall.
