Nuvigil is not available yet as generic in the USA. Its sister drug, Provigil (modafinil), has recently become available in generic. Provigil is like Nuvigil, but it is not time released like the Nuvigil.
Hi, randy! Actually, I prefer Provigil as it's a bit more mellow ~ I get jittery on Nuvigil. Cephalon did release a generic for Provigil, but it's their own brand drug that sells for a few cents cheaper. :-( :-(
2/12/2015 armodafinil - generic for Nuvigil by Cephalon. MYLAN was approved 6/15/2007 - but doesn't make it any longer. I will continue to google to find a manufacturer ... possibly in China ... KenManhattan
