If it's a good day, I just take a morning dose and a dose at supper. If it is a bad day for feeling so tired, I add a dose at lunch time. Staying active helps me be stronger too. I started with walking indoors for 5 minutes at a time. Before I broke my foot, I could walk a couple of miles on a good day. My foot is still broken, so my walking is limited to just normal daily getting around, no "exercise". So I do a lot of stretching and lifting very light weights. I also use those elastic physical therapy bands too. Exercise started very gently and built up over time keeps me strong and helps my endurance and the quality of my sleep improves. Just don't over do it! If I do, then I regret it for days and days.
I agree Ribose is the best!!! I prefer it over Provigil. I take 5 grams 2-3 times a day, sometimes more depending on how tired I am. I also use Ubiquinol and acetyl l-carnitine for energy.
You don't find that an evening dose interferes with your sleep?
