|heart issues with provigil
Nov 23, 2007
I am newly diagnosed hiv+. I am considering asking my doctor to let me try provigil for fatique and difficulty concentrating. Since Provigil is a stimulant does it have any negative impact on the heart. I am 65 years old and had some fibrillation problems in the past but this is no longer a current problem.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Provigil should be avoided by people with certain types of heart problems, such as mitral valve prolapse. Your past history of fibrillation should not be a problem; however, as with all prescription medications, your physician will evaluate you for potential complications before prescribing any medications.
