Back to life (for now)


#21

Best wishes. Please keep us updated.

Do you visit the Unusual Beliefs section quite a bit? I generally stay away from there as I find some topics triggering.


#22

I just keep clicking latest to see what active threads I can post in

Day 4: woke up had 5 mg Ritalin and 300 mg modafinil and a cup of coffee. For about a hour I felt awake. Now I’m getting sleepy so I took another 300 modafinil. Did get a good night of sleep though


#24

Feeling better after that last 300. Did some dishes because I got to leave an empty dishwasher in the morning. I did a lot of reading yesterday about narcolepsy and modafinil is the drug of choice. I’m back in bed now but may get up soon. If I can stay like this I’ll be good


#25

Now I’m hearing an almost inaudible voice


#26

Day 4 2nd dose: took the 2nd dose of Ritalin a hour ago. The voice didn’t last that long. Overall I’m awake and feel well. It’s amazing


#27

Have definitely been awake today. Got really lightheaded around dinner time which was due to hunger. Thinking I’ll only take 500 modafinil tomorrow. Quite glad I might have a fix for the fatigue


#28

If I’ve really fixed my energy, next I’d like to feel good. I might be depressed idk


#29

Friendly voice back telling me to stop my Ritalin to stop the voices, not sure what to do


#30

Back to quiet, sort of


#31

Is it your doctor prescription ?


#32

Yes, I’m prescribed Ritalin for energy


#33

Day 5:
morning dose: 500 modafinil 5 Ritalin, coffee
Got to sleep late because of baby, a little before midnight. Awake so far


#34

Day 5, dose 2:
Decided to talk another 100 modafinil along with 5 more Ritalin.
I ended up back in bed. I’m not totally fatigued but I feel I’m not fully awake, like this nagging in between. I think I’ll do 600 modafinil tomorrow. We’ll see


#35

Been hearing a high pitched sound I know is voices in the background


#36

The sound has been coming and going but it’s there a lot. Im probably right on the edge


#37

Ritalin?!? and Modafinil?!?
I’m surprised your not climbing the walls and psychotic!


#38

I know, it’s a miracle


#39

Day 6, morning:
Took 400 modafinil and 5 Ritalin and coffee. Going to take another 200 modafinil when I see what’s going on, I didn’t want to take 7 pills plus my 2 vitamins all at once.

Voices never broke thru yesterday so we’ll see about today

Took another 200 modafinil, having breakthrough voices. Ugh
