    In 2010 I was diagnosed with narcolepsy with severe cataplexy, I started to take 200mg of Modafinil daily and 10mg of Citalopran, the first few weeks it also helped, unfortunately I had to increase the dosages quickly, so after one year at a dose of 800mg daily (far too much) Modafinil and 20mg Citalopran was. Dan got me 20mg of Anafranil, from which I got strong side effects, to the suicide attempt, I guess from it only. In the meantime, I take 2 x 2.25ml Xyrem overnight and 200mg Modafinil + 20mg CitaloQ during the day, unfortunately, my doses have to be increased again, as it just does not have the desired effect on me, but I have read a lot that it is like a miracle cure in other people. Side effects that I had: Modafinil – high blood pressure, dizziness (start time), sweat dehydration (start time), pharyngitis Anafranil – depression, suicidal thoughts to the attempt, personality changes (aggressive), mood swings, 25kg gaining weight For this I take painkillers for years, since my body is already very suffered under the cataplexy, so I have daily headache, back pain and just bruised places the pain …. I take alternating Iboprfofen 600, Novaminsulfon 500 and Dolormin extra, otherwise I get stomach problems ….

    Modafinil for Fatigue

    Modafinil After a benign brain tumor, I always felt a strong subliminal tiredness that more than severely restricted my everyday life. After some research on the internet, I came across Modafinil and suggested this to my treating physicians. It does what it should, real side effects I could not determine for me, the dosage level is left to me. -100mg: Since I did not notice much (in connection with Venlafaxin), according to reports from the but ‘normal’ people have to walk up the wall already … In connection with Flouxetin it looks different. Here are enough for me at the beginning 100mg (Here are the descriptions in connection with Venlafaxin) -200mg: I was awake, the whole day (according sleep provided), I had no significant hole more. -300mg: Since I was quite agile, slightly to medium beyond the normal. To my Venlafix-taking phase, I always took Venlafaxin and 200mg to collect, as needed (daily performance), I then took again later 100mg Modafinil. I never wanted to dare a higher dose. At some point is good, and the body will certainly have its reason after 300mg, if he signals me I do not want more. I never wanted to use it as a performance-enhancing tool, but only to lead a normal life. What includes corresponding performance limits and breaks or recovery times. I am satisfied with the preparation and more than happy to have come across this!

    The two drugs have m.E. no side effects triggered with me. On the contrary, if I had occasionally forgotten to take it, the original symptoms reappeared.
