Default Different diagnoses

In my case I have several medical problems which require me to take several mg.'s. of pain killers each day, which leaves me very groggy and not as functional as I need to be. Has anyone ever been given this RX for a situation such as this? My Dr. Has given me an RX for 200mg. a day to start, which the ins. co. will not pay for until the Dr. gets them to pre-certify me.Just before my next appt.,my husband,(who has sleep apnea, and is very overweight) was given something called Adipex,(also not covered by Ins.-as they feel wt.loss RX's should not be paid for). Anyway I tried one of these and it perked me up quite a bit, so I asked the Dr. if I could take them, which he refused,(since it is primarily a weight loss drug, and I am not really overwieght). That is when he Rx'd the Provigil. If anyone is taking them for the same reason, can you please tell me if it works for you, what the side effects are, and if you had to increase the dosage soon after you began? Also can you just go off of them with no withdrawal effects,if the side effects are too undesireable? Thanks for anyone's help!
