Provigil is a highly effective and reliable medication for successful treatment of all kinds and forms of excessive sleepiness, narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea or hypopnea syndrome, idiopathic hypersomnia, shift work sleep disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other.
Potentially Provigil also works effectively for a few other disorders of other kind such as mood disorders (depression, Parkinson’s disease and other), depersonalization disorder and other. However the effectiveness wasn’t proved clinically.
As it was mentioned above the drug is highly effective for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a neurobehavioral kind of disorder, which is characterized by impulsiveness and inattention. Basically, it means that it’s getting hard for a person suffering from this disorder to concentrate on particular task. It leads to low productivity and efficiency. Management of ADHD includes using of medications (such as Provigil ADHD), behavior therapy, change of lifestyle, and continuous counseling during the course. All these treatment methods together ensure the best result possible however not every one has enough time to consult doctor and go through a behavior therapy daily. More over in more than 75% of cases genetics causes ADHD, which means that behavior therapy and lifestyle changes aren’t effective and the only treatment that will help patients to achieve the deserved results is medication. Anyway, it won’t be useless to consult your doctor before making the decision. You might be allergic to some components of Provigil and it may cause some side effects that aren’t dangerous but annoying. Common side effects are headache, dizziness, dry mouth and similar.
Due to recent clinical researches carried out by US Food and Drug Administration in 2006 it was found that Provigil is unfit for use by kids. It may cause significant skin rash or erythema multiforme in case if a patient is allergic to ingredients of the drug. This disease required no treatment and goes away by itself however it is still not desirable effect.
You can avoid all the possible side effects if you consult your doctor or pharmacist beforehand. Also take the drug strictly according to the instruction that goes along with the preparation. This way you will ensure the best results possible and experience no undesirable effects.
