Narcolepsy is a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness and the tendency to fall asleep suddenly in inappropriate situations (sleep attacks). Modafinil can help treat your narcolepsy and reduce your chances of having sleep attacks. It is also used to treat shift work sleep disorders and sleep apnea.
Although the exact mechanism of action is unknown, modafinil is thought to work by inhibiting the uptake of a neurotransmitter called dopamine, but other mechanisms are also thought to be involved.
Modafinil is usually taken once a day in the morning, but can be split into two doses per day if your doctor considers it appropriate. It can be taken with or without food. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water.
