    SWIM was wondering if anyone had any experience with this combination. SWIM has both on hand, and has heard reports ranging from massive overstimulation and a panic attack to "xanax-ish" (relaxing, sedating). SWIM wishes he could link to some research, but hasn't reached 50 posts yet. Could this be a usable combination for extended periods without sleep? How would it impact cognitive function and memory?

    SWIM would not recommend this combination. In SWIM’s experience Provigil alone has made her feel like her heart was doing somersaults. Because Adderall and Amphetamines are also stimulants SWIM cannot imagine it being a very good idea. The relaxation feeling SWIY has heard about may be a sensation caused by too much stimulation – kind of like when something is so hot it’s cold. If SWIY is prone to panic attacks they will most likely have one.

    See my kittie disagrees. Ive heard more reports of the sleepy effect. My kittie takes provigil and also has an adderral rx and 50% the provigil works great and the other 50% it makes kittie sleepy. Me kittie thinks that the people who react stimulated to provigil all the time that it might be a bad idea but to those who dont always react may benefit? I dont know. Been trying to get an answer to this for a while.

    i'm also interested in this, and just wanted to bump the thread up.

    my cat has found modafinil alone to be less than helpful for study purposes, but has found this to be quite a focusing combo: 50 mg of caffeine with 100-200 mg modafinil (both in pill form taken together, and if effects begin to drop take another 50 mg caffeine every 4 hours)

    strangely modafinil mixed with a cup of coffee gave both my cat and my cat's neighbor bad headaches..
