I had the Mirena IUD the whole time I was on Provigil and it worked great. No need for backup methods. I have three boys and was on the IUD and Provigil between all of them. When ready to get pregnant I had it removed came off all meds and was always pregnant within a month.

For future thread-readers, I went to my gyno and he prescribed a birth control pill with higher hormone levels.  Apparently this wasn't nearly as big of a deal as I thought it was.  My doctor has other patients on Nuvigil and the birth control pill. I'm not sure how effective this would be as a contraceptive, but my main objective was controlling PMDD (or whatever you want to call it).  I blame out-of-control hormones for my panic.
