On 02-15-99 Provigil (Modafinil) became available for the treatment of Narcolepsy as well as other sleep disorders. While the jury is still out on the effectiveness of this, the first new medication for treating Narcolepsy in 20 plus years. And for most if not all other forms of sleep disorders. It has shown promise to many during clinical trials performed.
The idea to many of leaving the daily dose of a strong stimulant for one that to many would'nt exactly be called a stimulant may seem frightening. To some without health coverage, even a risky endevor. Considering at a over sea's price (outside the USA) ordering can be as high as $180 for 100MG/30 Days. Whereas by a prescription now it is said to be roughly that of $5 per tablet for a 100MG, and depending on amount. Even slightly less.
My feeling of course in dealing with any problem is. If you suffer from any debilitating disorder, condition. Try everything once at least. You have a life to go for. The idea is to be able to say you did it all in the way of taking any efforts to regain as much of as possible your health. And that old feeling of being normal. Assuming normal is even possible.
