  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have not noticed it is helping me yet. We are working on increasing the dosage to see if that will help, however I am noting chest pains which I was passing off as heart burn. We are now considering this to be a side effect of the medication that needs to be watched as I increase the meds.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

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.
