Default bipolar

My husband has been taking lots of different medications for manic depression. When he found himself falling asleep at stop lights, in the middle of conversations etc. and wanting to nap all throughout the day he felt it was time to take yet another medication to help him with this problem as well. After taking 200mg of Provigil daily for about 2 months he started to make clicking sounds with his mouth. Pretty soon his tongue was moving about constantly and getting in the way causing him to bite his tongue several times a day. His speech was being effected due to his figity tongue as well. His doctor told him to stop the provigil right away. Now after 8-10 weeks his tongue is still doing its thing but not as much so I guess there's improvement that way. Has this been a problem for anyone else? I found these to be very strange symptoms.
