    Modafinil is used as a treatment for excessive sleepiness that may be cause by narcolepsy, or apnea. It is also prescribed for shift work sleep disorder, a disorder wherein you have a difficult time staying awake during work because you are unable to get a normal sleep routine caused by frequent shifting of work schedule. This medication has a stimulant effect but is not categorized under the stimulants class. Unlike stimulants, this drug works well yet has a low chance for addiction and abuse.


    I am a security guard in one of the hotels here and because Im the only one who doesnt have a family yet, for more than a year already, had always been the one who had to keep changing shifts. Just last week my doctor told me I have that work shift sleep disorder. Was told to take modafinil. Will this med cure this?
