I take it 30 min before my night shift, and I am able to stay alert for all of my shift.

Hello. I have only taken the nuvigil 2 times now. Both times i have taken it i have felt anxious, sweaty, and anxiety. I have read and been told that all of that will pass. Its just worry some. I will say i dont feel as sleepy as i use to. And dont feel like im about to fall asleep after being up a short while. Does anyone else here have or have had these side affects while taking nuvilgil the firts few days.

Been using one daily, however I started having heart palpitations, chest tightness shortness of breath. Went through a full cardiology work up due to a family history of heart disease. When I looked up the side effects all that I was experiencing was related to this medication. Now I only take it when really needed and my chest problems went away. Really scared for a time. Be careful.
