  • Perceived effectiveness for Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence): Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Obstructive sleep apnea: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Life with out Modafinil is very ordinary. I was first diagnosed with depression two year before having a sleep study and OSA and somnolence was discovered. I wonder now if the depression was just a result of these two conditions. I am on 150mg of Setraline for the depression and since being on both that and 200mg of modafinil, I have my life back. I once could not walk past the bed and not want to get in. I often fell aslep if I lay down on the floor to play with my children. I was a zombie. Great drug. Worth every cent for my issues.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Hot flashes

Dosage: 400 mg Daily
