What is Modalert (Modafinil) used for?
Modalert (Modafinil) is an oral medication prescribed to treat daytime sleepiness caused by narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnoea. It operates by adjusting the balance of chemicals in the brain to promote wakefulness and alertness during the day. Your doctor may also prescribe its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Modalert (Modafinil)?
Strictly follow your doctor`s instructions while using Modalert (Modafinil) to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One tablet is normally administered once daily in the morning. Your particular instructions will depend on your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. They should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is suggested prior to use if you experience nausea. Do not split or crush the tablets before use to avoid destroying or altering the effects of their contents.
