Too sleepy to take my wake up meds?

Postby sleepybeanie13 » Sun May 07, 2017 3:45 pm

My sleep doc started me on Modafinil/Provigil a couple weeks ago, and it really helps me get through my day feeling more normal. The problem is, when I wake up, I'm soooo sleepy that I can't even pick my head up to take my meds until after a 2-hour wake up process, usually after 12 hours of sleep.

So, that's not ideal. Anyone else experience this? Any tips?

You need to make an appointment with your doctor and talk to him/her about this. You may need different medication, or a lower dose.
It's not worth it.
