Modafinil / Armodafinil makes hormonal birth control less effective
I am taking Nuvigil 250mg. My doctor said that it makes hormonal birth control less effective. I wanted to know what y'all use for birth control, or what other meds y'all switched to so you could take hormonal birth control
I dont have to worry about b/c for myself as I've had a hysteroscopy, but I'm curious for my daughter for the future.
I took Tramadol for my fibro once. It helped but it upset my stomach and took my dreams. I'm a lucid dreamer. One of the few "perks" of my 8 disabling conditions. So I stopped taking it.
If sex is important to you, ask for another med. If he won't give it, change docs.
We have so little joy with this disorder and meds take months to adjust. Take the joy, there are other meds.
I've only been on it a month or so, and my period was definitely heavier, but not by a lot. Before I started taking armoafinil, my neurologist and I spoke about it, and he gave me the impression that the reduced efficacy has been overstated in an attempt for Nuvigil to "cover their tail."
I don't use any back up protection (I'm married).
