Avatar f tn on the addictions forum someone brought up the topic provigil for energy, i have been clean for a while now but i have hep so my energy level is very low, and i also have under active thyroid so my question is this, when i researced this new drug i found """PROVIGIL is a federally controlled substance (C-IV) because it has the potential to be abused or lead to dependence. Please use PROVIGIL only as directed and keep in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse.
1394098 tn?1385963734 So now my Dr is thinking of prescribing Provigil. Has anyone tried this drug. If so does it work well for fatigue. I read that it helps with focus but I haven't read anything about it helping with tiredness.
Avatar n tn I'm more alert now with the diagnosis, than I was before while taking provigil. They say provigil is supposed to naturally wake you, it feels like you drank a 100 cups of coffee, while you downed a sleeping pill, nothing natural about that.
5389497 tn?1367331006 Hello, It may be difficult to confirm anything regarding the interpretation of your ultrasound results without correlation of clinical examination findings. Enlarged thyroid is a symptom often associated with thyroid disease such as Hashimoto’s Disease and Grave’s Disease. An ultrasound can be used to evaluate nodules, lumps and enlargement of your thyroid gland. Wait for your test results. Keep me posted on the test result. Do write to me again. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn I started going to the doctor about 1 1/2 years ago because I was exhausted all the time, had no enegry, weight gain, and depression. I was put on Cymbalta, and Provigil. Over the next few months I had blood work done and the results varied from time to time w/my Thyroid being low. I was referred to an Endocrinologist and went to the appointment hoping I would have some answers to why I have been feeling bad for the past few months and he made me feel really stupid.
679417 tn?1226462115 He told me that my thyroid would have to be removed. It swells, and the swelling comes and goes. Its quite uncomfortable and makes me crazy. Its like having a very tight collar on. It is great when it goes down. We were changed to a new duty station. This time I have a doctor who is not listening to me. He seems to feel that because I am a nurse, my head is loaded with extra information and does not take my concerns serious. I hate this swelling. Its so uncomfortable.
Avatar n tn Attorney, Do not give up, I have read so many thyroid books. The most recent thyroid and depression and the Thyroid Solution, both huge help. I was always told that even though your thyroid test are normal, there could still be problems with your thyroid. Stress to your pcp that the symptoms are severe and not your usual feelings. If your pcp does not listen, go to another m.d. My pcp is great and listens to me.
307874 tn?1242759398 My asthma allergy doctor found a lump on my thryoid and sent me to get a ultrasound of my thyroid and now I have nodule on my thyroid. does any body know anything about this? they are sending me for a biopsy and I have not heard when yet!
Avatar m tn ) and i don't want to get into Provigil/Nuvigil/dextroamphetamine, etc. i was just welcoming comments from the thyroid crowd here what a good ratio of levo to Cytomel may be for someone whose TSH is around 2.00 on 100 mcg levo right now and you still feel comatose? i know you are all not doctors out there, but your input is usually quite educated and your comments are valuable to me. thanks a lot. could i expect energy boosts from Cytomel?
335728 tn?1331418012 It is too bad your cardiologist isn't also a neuro . . . I have had thyroid problems for years. I don't have a goiter--just an underactive thyroid gland. It has caused many problems. Not only have I gained weight, but it caused my heart rhythm to be irregular. It also caused high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Also, the constipation was horrible. I had one bout that took up to two weeks! Very serious issue. My nails were also brittle.
393685 tn?1425816122 She is planning on going to President- elect Obama's swear in and she quotes - she is depressed because of her gaining weight - she will have to make other arrangements for her attire that was planned for the event. Keep in mind - January is thyroid awareness month. This is the time we need to really pull as much resource information as we can to get this disease out there as a public awareness.
Avatar n tn blood work showed no abnormalities - Protein analysis, Vitamin D, IGF-1 (growth hormone), B-12, Lyme disease, Sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein all good. Prescribed Provigil. This is my first day on Provigil and although it helps me not fall asleep, it doesn't make me any less tired + it gives me a headache. (July, 2008) I added St. John's Wort to the Lamictal. I now feel the the best I've felt depression and mood-wise in a long time. No change in sleepiness/mental fatigue.
Avatar n tn Is my thyroid gland messed up?I've been tired,my hair has been falling out a lot.I had a thyroid gland blood test done back in March it showed every thing looked good.Could some one please give some information.I all so have a sore throat.Does that have any thing to do with the cysts?TNT406.
149081 tn?1242401432 I was on Provigil for quite a while due to sleep apena. Have you had your thyroid checked recently? What strength of thyroid medication are you talking?
149081 tn?1242401432 I was put on a medication called Provigil. Provigil is a central nervous system stimulant to help keep me from wanting to sleep so much - also I am currently on 150mcg. of levoxyl and 3 weeks ago all my thyroid levels came back normal. For the last 2 saturdays I have had weird attacks where my body juist wants to give out- i get a weird bad pressure in my head, my body gets numb and I get the shakes,and feel like i'm going to collapse- my brain cannot focus.
449658 tn?1211307922 8 mg/dL) -HLA B-27 Antigen - Not Detected - Western Blot Lyme - Reactive to 2 of the 10 (41kD and 58 kD) for IgG, and 1 of 3 (41kD) for IgM I'm hoping that someone can look at these results and figure out what is wrong with me. My rheumatologist has put me on Provigil as he feels that my fibromyalgia may stem from a mild form of narcolepsy. However, I will be seeing him again in a few weeks for examination of further testing.
Avatar n tn Talk to your hepatologist about Provigil. It is proven to be effective for SOC patients who are chronically fatigued--helps clear the fog too.
Avatar n tn The first one told me that I had Hashimoto's disease and there was nothing he could do and I would have to learn to live with it. He did prescribe me Provigil which i have not yet filled. The second doctor told me that I needed to lose weight and this would help resolve a lot of my symptoms. He placed me on Byetta (I am not diabetic), Atipex and prescription vitamin that I cannot remember the name of (maniten?) high in Vitamin E. I am very confused as to what to believe.
Avatar n tn Sorry you didn't get an answer to your question, which is most likely because we don't know and out of the realm of our expertise, or due to so many repeat and/or similar questions, perhaps it was answered in another post, so you might do a thread/post search. However, if you haven't already, you might go to the Doctor Thyroid Forum and ask Dr. Lupo at http://www.medhelp.
10600652 tn?1416238283 has anyone tried nuvigil or provigil for energy? did it work for you?
1244168 tn?1268742262 Bloodwork showed high cholesterol and vitamin D deficiency. Thyroid and hormone levels were normal. Dr. ordered bone density scan and thyroid scan. Thyroid scan showed - FINDINGS- The right lobe of the thyroid measures 4.3 x 1.3 x 1.4 cm. The left lobe measures 3.7 x 1.5 x 1.3 cm. The isthmus measures 2 mm. The thyroid echotexture is homogeneous. In the upper pole of the left lobe, there is a complex hyperechoic nodule which measures 1.0 x 0.8 x 0.9 cm.
Avatar f tn He is also taking provigial to stay awake and that doesn't work well. He has a low thyroid but even with the increase dosage he's up to that doesn't seem to be the answer. He usually has sunus problems everyday too. No one seems to know what to do. He hates being on all the pain meds as the dosage has to go up to be affective. It's the only thing that allows him to function enough to work....What kind of doctor or diagnosis do you offer?
534785 tn?1329595808 I won't be seeing her for another 8 months now. I can't help but wonder if my thyroid is still causing the joint problems, fatigue, weight gain, brittle nails, brain fog, constipation, and dry skin, but she doesn't seem to think it is and she's the expert. Not much I can do about it. She did tell me to really look into my fatigue issues.
5389497 tn?1367331006 If he only ordered TSH for your thyroid - he only tested what the pituitary is telling the thyroid what to do, not what the thyroid is *actually* doing... the docs think TSH is gold, is is more fools gold? You need more actual thyroid testing (free T3, free T4 and antibodies) if you want a better idea. Glad you got the zapper dose of D. When you go off, don't just go down to 1000, go to say 5000iu. Move down from there and up as needed. Make sure always D3.
Avatar n tn I stopped having periods months ago so I went to the doctor and they tested my thyroid it was fine. I went back a month later and she started my on Provigil to keep me from being so tired. At that time I had more labs done to test for chronic mono, Estrogen, Testosterone, FSH, and CBC. I started the progesterone challenge that day the 15th after my labs. I finished on the 25th and have still not started or even spotting. I was told today that all my labs were normal.
Avatar f tn Have excessive daytime sleepiness - trying to get diagnosed possibly narcolepsy or hypersomnia - currently taking Provigil 200 - 400 mg per day (just started 1st day); Have had very low Vitamin E levels - was taking 50,000 IU per week for 12 weeks currently taking 1,000 IU per week. Have had depression/PMDD - currently taking Fluoxetine 20 mg per day. It just seems that someone is missing something and these all are tied in together, please help!
Avatar n tn I can not even get out of be and I have been on provigil and adderall neither of which help me at all. I have also been to the emergency and my thyroid is supposedly level. They just tell me that they can not do anything for me. Is there any help for me out there?
Avatar n tn I have an appointment with an endocronologist in March, but I find that on some days like today I am too tired to move. I am currently on synthyroid and provigil for narcolepsy which I take daily, but I am still so tired I can not move. My mother has goiters, aunts and uncles with hyperthyroidism, and I have nodules on my thyroid. Does anyone have adrenal failure? If so is extreme fatigue a symptom?
