Default heart problems

I just started taking Provigil and have NEVER had high blood pressure in my life and NOW have very high readings and a recent echo @ the dr's office and it came back abnormal for hypertension and enlargement of my heart. <br><br>I am now on Topol and arent feeling any better. Still have dizziness and almost fainting... as well as severe headaches...Ive cut out caffeine completely but still no results after a week. <br><br>Is there any link with Provigil and blood pressure and or enlargement of the heart? <br><br>Anyone who can help.. I would greatly appreciate it. <br><br>Jen

Default High Blood Pressure

My blood pressure has risen also since taking provigil. I am monitoring it closely. Are you taking any other meds that might be contributing to it. I have also noted an increase in anxiety and panic attacks. But I am not giving up yet. At least I can stay alert and awake. It seems to have helped with depression greatly.
