Modafinil is used to help people who have narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea/hyponea, or shift work sleep disorder to stay awake during the day. Modafinil does not cure these conditions and will only work as long as you continue to take it.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

It has worked good for me. I was bought Provigil without prescription here
Working / Worked
Couldn't tolerate the side effects. Kept me alert for 20 hours at a time even in the smallest dosage and then rebound narcolepsy symptoms like paralysis and caraplexy were worse.
Working / Worked
I began taking Provigil in 2007 right after my diagnosis, I cant remember the exact dosage but it worked for a while but would still have sleep attacks. I quit taking Provigil in 2008 to try to get pregnant and then started it again in 2010 after my son was born and nursing for 13 months. I started Provigil again for a few weeks but then my doctor decided to switch my to Nuvigil and have been taking it ever since.
