Modafinil is a prescription medicine used to help people stay awake. Specifically, it is approved to treat people with excessive sleepiness due to the following: Narcolepsy; Sleep apnea (known medically as obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome or OSAHS); Shift work sleep disorder (SWSD), a problem in people who work night shifts or who frequently change between day and night work shifts.
Please do check it with your doc, I do not recommend to use a prescription med for staying awake to avoid laziness & sleepiness for studying, the med would have side effects at a later stage.
Please take care, best wishes!
