Special Order—Subject to Availability

Provigil is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or shift work sleep disorder.

It promotes wakefulness. It is thought to work by altering the natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain.

Provigil belongs to a class of drugs called Stimulants, CYP3AF Inducers, Moderate.

Studies show that Provigil increases the ability to stay awake compared to a placebo in people with narcolepsy, sleep apnea, or shift work sleep disorder. Provigil is considered a first-choice option for decreasing sleepiness in people with these conditions.


A medicine that helps people stay awake all day is called Provigil. It is believed that it achieves its effects through influencing the brain's endogenous chemicals, known as neurotransmitters.

The extreme drowsiness that can be brought on by sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or shift work sleep disorder can be treated well with Provigil.

There are further applications for Provigil that are not included in this patient information leaflet.


If you have ever experienced an allergic reaction or rash while using modafinil or armodafinil, you should not take Provigil because it contains the same active ingredients (Nuvigil).

It is possible for Provigil to induce skin responses, some of which may be serious enough to require medical attention in a hospital. If you develop a rash or hives on your skin, blisters or peeling, mouth sores, difficulty breathing or swallowing, fever, swelling in your legs, dark urine, yellowing of your skin or eyes, or swelling in your face, you should stop taking this medicine and seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms.

Inform your physician if you suffer from angina (chest discomfort), liver or renal illness, a cardiac condition, a history of drug addiction, if you use blood pressure medicine, or if you have recently experienced a heart attack before beginning treatment with Provigil.

The central nervous system is impacted by the use of modafinil. It's possible that this drug will affect either your thoughts or your reactions. When you are driving or engaging in any activity that needs you to be aware, exercise extreme caution. Await the effects of this medicine on your degree of alertness before engaging in any additional potentially hazardous activities.
