I couldn’t agree more with Saffron’s comment and hope Dr. J will weigh in *yoo hoo!* I’m among those who appreciate the antidepressant benefit of Prozac, but am challenged by the inertia which can seep in. I don’t know if Celexa is similar to Prozac in that regard. I found Provigil helpful as a stimulant, but it’s not very long acting. Concerta provides me significant improvement with a longer duration. Provigil is more expensive but it’s easier to get (at least in the US). Getting the monthly Rx for Concerta gets rather tedious–especially if I’m traveling and need to get a new Rx.
