Hey roadking,

Provigil (modafinil) is not available for sale as generic yet. "There are currently no generic Provigil products licensed for sale. Although the first patent for Provigil expired in November 2007, the manufacturer claims that another patent still protects the drug. The settlement from a recent lawsuit regarding this issue states that one company can start making a generic version in 2012; this is the soonest that a generic version could become available."
