FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: MODAFINIL

User Comments:


For Narcolepsy: “I took this for about two months. I did help me stay awake a little longer, but I was still having sleep attacks. The headaches/migraines were also unbearable. I also had to switch to a pharmacy that prescribed 60days not just 30. Without that it would have been 150$ a month with insurance.”

For Depression: “I started Provigil (Modafinil) to treat the extreme fatigue due to major depressive disorder. I’ve only been taking 100mg daily for two days, but the effects are immediate. I can think faster and more clearly (no more brain fog), my depression is non-existent, and I have a tremendous boost of energy! The only side effect has been heart palpitations in the afternoon. I’ve read this goes away after about a week. Not bothersome enough to stop. My insurance wouldn’t cover the cost to use it for depression. With an online coupon I was able to get it for under $70. All other pharmacies were between $115 and $600 for a month supply! And those prices are for the generic with coupon. Cash prices for brand name was a little over $1,000!”

For Fatigue: “Overall not good. Worked great at giving me focus, but took my appetite away and effects wore off after 5-6 hours when a headache kicked in. After about twenty uses it made me come out in an itchy red rash in exactly the same places on face and neck, but worse each time. Threw them away after 3 episodes of this.”

Provigil (modafinil) for Narcolepsy: “I am a Nurse . I gave in and began to take Provigil because I could not safely transfer my clients for appointments . I could NOT stay awake behind the wheel of a car or any time I sat still .Provigil has been a life changer! I started with 100mg once a day 4 years ago. It still works and no side effects!”
