Modafinil (also known as Provigil) fights excessive sleepiness provoked by various health conditions, stresses and unpleasant life circumstances. If a patient suffers from narcolepsy, sleep apnea or sleep disorders due to work shifts, Modafinil may become a perfect mean to promote wakefulness. The pills control certain chemicals in the brain of the patient. Do not forget to consult your physician, because Modafinil has serious side effects due to its strong impact on the brain.
Modafinil is also marketed as Provigil.
