This is a prescription medication that promotes wakefulness and alertness. I was placed on it by my doctor when I went to 3rd Shift and it is a miracle med that I really believe in.

    This is Good Stuff!! I work 3rd shift also and I take it when I'm in need of a "pep up" or energy." It's like prescriptive speed! :) It's NOT supposed to be taken in place of sleep, but more for alertness. For me, one pill seems to last approximately 8hrs. Important information to know before taking this medication:

    **You should not use this medication if you are allergic to modafinil or armodafanil (Nuvigil).
    Before using Provigil, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:**

    angina (chest pain);
    cirrhosis or other liver problem;
    kidney disease;
    a heart muscle or valve disorder such as mitral valve prolapse;
    a history of drug addiction;
    if you take blood pressure medications; or
    if you have recently had a heart attack.

    Provigil is great! All the benefits and none of the negative side effects from an amphetamine. Thank god I have insurance, because at 306 bucks for 30-200mg tabs they are spendy. Definitely worth it if you can get the doc to go for it.

    I am only 16 and have been on Provigil since the age of 14. Before using Provigil my sleep schedule was all wack, I was sleeping from when i got home from school at 2:30 to the next morning at 6:30am. If not on this medication i would be falling asleep during classes and not being able to be the active teen I am today.

    I rate this a 5. When I was diagnosed with CFIDS, it was the only med that made me normal again. My doctor is the best for researching meds before prescribing me something. It makes a weakened immune system (due to sleep and other issues) ready to go again. I may have to take it for the rest of my life, but it is worth it. I am normal again!

    Been on this since I moved to 3rd Shift. Love the stuff!!! Non-habit forming, only use when I didn't sleep enough before work. I have recommended this product to several other LEO's and they have also said it works. Usually lasts up to 10 hours, but can sleep on it without a problem if sleep presents itself as being available. Would recommend it to anyone who needs to stay awake, switching shifts, or wants to play hard now and sleep when they are dead!
