    I started taking provigil a while ago and I'm really happy to say that it has helped tremendously with fatigue. It's worth talking to your doctor about it if fatigue is a debilitating symptom for you.

    What is it? I mean is it an immune suppressant or a pain med., Cause I could sure use some of that.

    Did they prescribed it for Lupus or for sleep apnea, shift work or narcolepsy? My insurance will not cover it for Lupus..sigh.

    I don't have sleep apnea, shift work, or narcolepsy. My insurance covered it for auto-immune related fatigue. I think it's going to come out in a generic soon, so maybe that will help make it more available.

    thanks charile, so many people suffer with the fatigue, and this is a treatment option that we can to ask our drs. about....I know i certainly will ask. Hopefully once the generic comes out, it will be more affordable.
