This article explains what is Modavigil and how it can be used to treat symptoms of narcolepsy

Modavigil is one of the most powerful and popular anti-narcolepsy drugs on the market. It is so popular amongst patients as well as doctors for the following reasons:
— It helps bring back productivity to people suffering from narcolepsy

The primary target for Modavigil is narcolepsy. This chronic condition of central nervous system has such nasty symptoms as feeling of weakness, cataplexy and sudden urges to sleep which can not be stopped by mobilization of will or physical efforts. The narcoleptic person just doses off into short nap right in the middle of the daytime activities.

Besides that narcolepsy may cause sudden uncontrollable relaxation of muscles of the whole body which may result in people falling down and getting traumas of different severities.

Modavigil is a modern drug which alleviates all these symptoms allowing narcoleptic people to work and act just as if they were not ill. In other words it allows normal daytime productivity and control over person`s state of alertness.

This drug works just like amphetamines - it increases the concentration of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine in human brain.

This makes Modavigil a safer drug than those based on amphetamines.
