What is Provigil?

PROVIGIL medication (Modafinil) is a medication that promotes wakefulness. Modafinil (Provigil/Alertec/Modavigil) is a stimulant drug manufactured by a company named Cephalon, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it to treat excessive sleepiness caused by sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or shift-work sleep disorder.

Provigil is under federal control because of its possibility of creating dependence. Modafinil is proved to work reasonably in treating depression, drug addiction (i.e. cocaine addiction), some brain diseases like Parkinson's and schizophrenia, and fatigue produced by diseases.

Provigil pills

Provigil medication can not be taken children. In 2006 it was rejected by FDA for use by infants, although Modafinil is considered effective in treating Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Provigil tablets contain 100 or 200 mg of Modafinil. Provigil contains the following inactive ingredients: lactose, pregelatinized starch, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, and povidone.

Modafinil is a derivate of adrafinil, the difference being the fact that Provigil is stronger.

Modafinil can also be used for other purposes than those listed here.
