Modafinil is an oral drug that is used for improving wakefulness in patients with excessive sleepiness. The effect of modafinil is similar to caffeine.
Modafinil is used to promote wakefulness in patients with excessive sleepiness associated with narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (as an adjunct for treatment of the underlying obstruction), and shiftwork sleep disorder.
The most common side effects of modafinil in clinical trials are headache, upper respiratory tract infection, nausea, nervousness, anxiety and insomnia. These each occur in more than 5% of patients.
