Treats Excessive Sleepiness and Improves Sleep Quality

With its beneficial effect on neurotransmitters, studies show that modafinil can help treat narcolepsy and improve one’s quality of life:
1. In patients with excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy, long-term modafinil treatment significantly improved disease severity. [1-16]
2. In patients with chronic shift work sleep disorder, modafinil significantly improved functioning and quality of life. [17-21]
3. Treatment with 200 mg of modafinil reduced extreme sleepiness in patients with chronic shift work sleep disorder and resulted in significant improvement in work performance. [22]
4. In patients with excessive daytime sleepiness caused by Parkinson’s disease, modafinil administration at a dose of 200 mg per day significantly reduced subjective sleepiness. [23-30]
5. In patients with myotonic dystrophy, a genetic disorder that causes progressive loss and weakening of muscles, modafinil reduced excessive daytime sleepiness and improved mood. [31-33]
6. Either monotherapy or combination therapy, modafinil reduced sleepiness and fatigue in patients with major and bipolar depression. [34-39]
7. In patients taking opioids and antipsychotics, modafinil reduced subjective sleepiness without disrupting sleep pattern. [40-43]
8. In patients with sleep apnea syndrome, modafinil administration improved measures of sleepiness. [44]
9. In patients with excessive sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome, modafinil improved night-time wakefulness without disrupting daytime sleep. [45-56]
10. In patients with traumatic brain injury, modafinil ameliorated excessive daytime sleepiness. [57]
11. In patients with multiple sclerosis, modafinil treatment for three years or more reduced excessive daytime sleepiness. [58-60]
12. In patients with major depressive disorder who do not respond to antidepressant therapy, modafinil augmentation rapidly (within 1 week) and significantly improved sleep quality. [61-63]
13. In patients subjected to sleep deprivation, modafinil administration every 8 hours for three days resulted in a satisfactory level of vigilance, both subjective and objective, as evidenced by total absence of microsleep episodes. [64]
14. In patients with excessive daytime sleepiness related to narcolepsy, modafinil was found to be effective than methylphenidate, a drug used to treat narcolepsy. [65]
15. In chronic cocaine users, morning-dosed modafinil promoted nocturnal sleep, normalized sleep architecture, and decreased daytime sleepiness. [66]
