I want to try this medication, as the Dextroamphetamine is not doing the job it used to. Some manufacturers produce medications with sugar pill-like effects while others produce the real thing- any recommendations on Provigil generic manufacturers?
P.S. Provigil Brand $3,026 x 90 day supply / Modafinil Generic $25 x 90 day Nuvigil Brand $375 x 90 day supply / No generic available, this is a new drug. What is the reason why a newer drug would be cheaper than one that is older and has generics available?
The reason why generic is more cheaper than original is that original have the original formula, you know, and while they have the same active component they differ in excipients (fillers). You can find generic modafinil (modvigil and modalert) and generic armodafinil (Nuvigil), generics (artvigil and waklert ), online. Remember Rx only :). This drugs are scheduled CIV.
I have been on provigil 12 yrs. As a nurse 12 hr night shift, severe apnea , severe narcolepsy. Before generic all was good on provigil. Since insurance dictates generic and I have had many different manufacturers it's been eye awakening especially as a nurse I believed theyre all the same. NOT! I've had meds that I have fallen asleep an hr after taking when should be kicking in, found myself staying home afraid to drive, some just lethargic thought I was depressed for 3 months recently med had changed from walmart. They are different if you find what works demand that manufacture. I take 3 doses per day and was verified by study of my narcolepsy testing only teva brand worked for me
