Provigil or Nuvigil

September 3rd and I'm thinking more about where to go and what to do than when to exercise, or what to fix for dinner.  This is a holiday weekend after all, isn't it?!

Today I decided my neurologist is truly the bomb. For those of you that don't know, it's good. I've been tossing around the idea of switching from Provigil to Nuvigil because of an ad campaign that is telling me they'll help me with my co-pays if I switch.  It's been a very complicated process (at least to me). When I first started taking Provigil I had a $30 copay. Then it went to $60.  Then it hit around $180.  Last time I filled it, it cost me over $200! If I could exist without it I certainly would.  Damn insurance companies anyway.  So, anyway I got a card in the mail saying my copay could be as low as $10 per month so I got very excited. The closer I read the fine print, I think they'll pay up to $50 toward my copay- with a whole lot of other stipulations, so if the stars perfectly align I could save up to $50.  I figure that's better than nothing, as long as the medicine works for me.  So, I told all of this to my PC, and he transferred it to my neuro. Well the long and short of it is that my neuro had some free samples! So today I took half of the lower does and I'm loving it.  I hope to get a ton done this weekend! And maybe I'll sneak in some weight lifting also. :-)
