Hey all:

I have been on Provigil since March/April, and just very recently started taking Effexor (antidepressant). When I started Provigil, I had insomnia for about the first 3 weeks, and then that subsided (so long as I don't go over 300 mg in a day). However, when I began taking the Effexor (in addition to Provigil), I am now plagued with insomnia again. I am averaging about 2 - 4 hours of sleep a night, and am dragging my tired butt around barely able to stand during the day. Before I call the doc, has anyone experienced anything similar, or have any advice on what to do? Thanks!
