If he/she could demonstrate that they have a bona-fide condition for which modafinil is prescribed, he/she would not be asking us what to tell the doctor when trying to acquire it.
Personally, I've been able to get any prescription nootropics I need via an attention deficit diagnosis. But @ Vovin, if you're frequently fatigued during the day, I strongly recommend you look at your diet, sleep, or any underlying conditions which might cause fatigue, because in my experience modafanil and amphetamines only mask these problems, which will continue to eat away at your health.
I eat extremely and I do mean extremely healthy. I do not eat processed foods I havent eaten at a fast food join in prolly 3 months aI do not drink sodas I drink water everyday. I exercise for 45mins-1 hour a day. I am in peak physical condition. If I werent I would be far worse than I am energywise. I dont sleep basically. My mind is so active I cant get to sleep and while I am asleep I am still thinking.
So you want to take a stimulant because you have a sleep disorder. That makes about as much sense as using cortisone because you have the measles.
I guess this is a little over your head. FYI provigil is prescribed for a variety of sleep disorders.
Modafinil is a stimulant drug manufactured by Cephalon, and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder
, and excessive daytime sleepiness
associated with obstructive sleep apnea.
Oh really. So which of the three do you have?
Also, note that for example "in patients with OSA, PROVIGIL is used only along with other medical treatments for this sleep disorder
. PROVIGIL is not a replacement for your current treatment.
Consult your doctor about the importance of continuing your current OSA treatment while taking PROVIGIL"
