Not a stimulant. Used to treat early Parkingson's disease. It has no other valid use in clinical medicine. If you are not anemic and your thyroid and adrenal glands are O.K. try cold showers. In my view attention deficit is over diagnosed and over treated. Depression often mistaken for attention deficit.

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

Need Evaluation . It is not a good idea to self diagnose and it is a worse idea to self medicate. Do yourself a favor & get a full psych evaluation to help clarify the issues. You should also get an evaluation by your primary care doc to rule out cardiac issues, diabetes, thyroid problems, etc., that may be contributing to your fatigue. Note that stimulants are contraindicated if cardiac probs are present. Read more...
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. Read more...

Suggest. Provigil is a fine drug for narcolepsy, but like many of the drugs in this class, weight gain can be a problem. Best to switch back to amphetamine-like agents, which should control the symptoms and reverse the sleep issues. Another option might be Xyrem, but tough to use. Discuss with the sleep specialist.
