What is Provigil?

Provigil is a medication prescribed to adults to treat excessive sleepiness caused by:

  • Narcolepsy
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Shift work disorder 

Each of the above conditions can cause excessive sleepiness and can lead to other complications and conditions. A lack of sleep can make it difficult to think and concentrate and can affect your memory. Poor sleep can lead to you eating more and gaining weight. This can result in obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. If you have one of these conditions, Provigil can help. Taken as a tablet, it helps you feel more awake when you need to be.

Provigil active ingredients

The active ingredient in Provigil is called modafinil. It helps you feel more awake and alert to treat excessive daytime sleepiness. When you swallow a Provigil tablet, modafinil is absorbed into your bloodstream and transported to your brain. It then increases levels of certain natural substances in your brain that can make you feel more alert. These include the neurotransmitters dopamine and histamine which regulate your brain activity, particularly your sleep-wake cycle, and your motivation and reward pathways.

When Provigil causes any side effects, the most likely will be: 

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • An upset stomach
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
