My dad was prescribed nuvigil for excessive sleepiness. I’ve been on every antidepressant imaginable for disabling depression and have not seen results with any of them. My dad suggested I try one of his nuvigil to bring me out of my slump and give me energy. Wow! It erased my depression completely, and gave me energy I didn’t know was possible to have. I feel alive for once in my life and I love it. However, its not normally prescribed for depression but has off-label uses treating debilitating depression. I don’t feel high, I just feel good. How can I convince my doctor to prescribe it to me for this reason??
