A powerful wakefulness-promoting agent is recommended for patients who are diagnosed with sleep disorders caused by narcolepsy, shift work issues, and sleep apnea. Generally, Modafinil is an effective drug that triggers a potential influence on the human organism, improving the bothering condition. Apart from the main indication, Modafinil may be administered for purposes that are not mentioned in the safety guide. Contact your medical specialist before you start the therapy. An individual prescription and diligence in drug usage are the keys to successful and safe therapy.

How to Take Modafinil

Striving to avoid potential risks and experience the desired effects, a patient should follow all the recommendations and instructions specified by the doctor. Keep in mind that Modafinil may be habit-forming, so it should never be overused. Do not pass the medication to other patients, even though they may have similar symptoms. Modafinil should be used in the morning if you suffer from daytime sleepiness. Take the tablet an hour before you start working in case you have problems with night shift sleep disorders.

Modafinil may be administered with or without food. The maximal duration of the treatment course is 12 weeks. The use of a wakefulness drug should not take the place of usual rest. Modafinil dosage may depend on several factors, including your current health state, underlying disorders and accompanying health problems. On average, the initial dosage is 200 mg needed for effective therapy.
