I'm 80 yrs old and Providgil works beautifully for me to help me get through an energy demanding day. However my 57 yr old son gets no relief or response when taking Providgil for extreme tiredness/lethargy which prevents him from being productivly working. What med alternative to Providgil is there?
A newer version of Provigil (modafanil) exists called Nuvigil (armodafinal). I found it to be more effective that Provigil which I take now because my insurance company won't pay for the Nuvigil. Anyway, he might also try one of the amphetamine derived medications such as Adderall. Your son might want to consider having a sleep study done to determine the cause of his lethargy.
