Nuvigil in fight with sleep disorders

Nuvigil treats OSA, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders.

Nuvigil is the drug which helps patients liquidate severe sleepiness which is associated with narcolepsy and treat other sleep disorders (difficulty or shortness of breath during sleep, that is obstructive sleep apnea).

It is also not desirable for use by children.

If you are using the drug to treat obstructive sleep apnea, keep taking it as your usual treatment, if the doctor does not cancel it. The dosage depends on the state of your health and individual reaction to the treatment. For best results, use the medication exactly as it is directed by your doctor.
