What do you think - should the first dollars spent on Obamacare be to give every stupid Obama voter a lifetime Rx of this stuff?

I suspect an extreme psychoctic break coming in this man’s near future! Lets see, what drug did Freud champion as the “miracle drug”? Oh yeah. It was cocaine.

I understand completely that the above comments are made in levity.
I have relatively mild narcolepsy (I can still function normally, but doze off once or twice a day) so I’ve been prescribed Provigil.
Rather than describing it as something that will caffeinate you and make you energetic or edgy, it actually makes you much more focused. You don’t have more energy, or move faster, it makes you more deliberative and heightens your awareness of your surroundings.
Personally, it’s been a fantastic treatment for me, and, truth be told, it’d probably be a plus for most people (me not being in most people’s heads or bodies, I can’t say for sure).
Supposedly, it’s non-addictive (when I used it originally for shift work, I’d take it occasionally, and still don’t take it on the weekends/non-work days) and I haven’t experienced any side effects such as insomnia. The major drawback is that my insurance plan (very widely used) doesn’t seem to cover much of it as it’s $5 a pill which can add up.

Too bad it’s so expensive, this sounds like something that may help me day-to-day.

Will this replace Adderall as the “breakfast of champions” at top universities?

wonder if “it makes you an insufferable asshole” was tested for as a side effect. not referring to any posters here, btw, just cueing off the guys’ attitude in the story.

Personally I would look for an all natural alternative since I have a distrust of most Drs. and pharmiceutical companies. But hey, that’s just me I guess. I cringe at the thought of having to take any kind of medication!

Ben,

Repeat after me... Expensive drugs and other therapies will not be allowed under ObamaCare. Patients expecting to be cared for will be sorely disappointed. I keep wondering to myself when the first aspect of patient care will be revealed, having been hidden in the miasma of regulations.
