24 Sep 2011 husband makes comments about my behavior that makes me think I am crazy. supposedly I don't see what he does. This medicine has saved my life, but not my marriage. Im a nice person, I have no life outside of work, my husband resents me taking Provigil. He has admitted it's not fair I have a pill for fatigue and he is still tired. He wold rather I not take Provigil, cry fall into depression. Provigil is the difference of being in bed depressed wanting to die, to getting up and struggle though another day. It's not a cure, but helps me function.

18 Dec 2009 I do not wake up well in the morning and I get tired in the afternoon. Provigil keeps me alert in the afternoon and helps me to focus better when I have tasks to accomplish.
