Nuvigil-Armodafinil(ar moe daf' i nil)

Hello Blog Reader,
It has been a bit since I have put something new on the blog. That is till tonight. I was driving into work this morning and on the radio there was an advertisement for a drug. The name of the drug was Nuvigil. Of course like any new drugs out there it explains the benefits of the drug first repetitively and slowly. Then after the 1-2 things it may list as to what it will help you with it is followed by a lengthy list of what it could/ or may mess up in your body. This drug was geared to those of us who work crazy shift hours or those of us who's jobs require crazy hours of mandatory overtime. It promises to create wakefulness in those of us who may be or get sleepy during the midday hours. This drugs is also used to treat narcolepsy. After listening to the benefits which aren't many. It proceeded with a crazy long list of side effects. I am sorry but I am one who gets sleepy during the middle of my work day and to tell you the truth I read the various side effects and I personally don't think the risk out weights the benefits on this one.. Hello lets go ahead and feel sicker than you have ever felt in your life just for the sake of staying awake at work..
Ummmm I would rather change my diet and be healthy first Thank you.. (However to each his own) Now I am not saying do not take the Meds. What I am saying is read for yourself and may your own choice..Plus the fact that this drug messes with the chemicals in the brain is sort of scary anyways.

Nuvigil-Armodafinil is a type of drug to create wakefulness. This drug is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by narcolepsy (a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness) or shift work sleep disorder (sleepiness during scheduled waking hours and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep during scheduled sleeping hours in people who work at night or on rotating shifts). Armodafinil is also used along with breathing devices or other treatments to prevent excessive sleepiness caused by obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS; a sleep disorder in which the patient briefly stops breathing or breathes shallowly many times during sleep and therefore does not get enough restful sleep). Nuvigil is at type of drug considered to be in a class of medication called wakefulness-promoting agent. It works by changing certain amounts of chemicals in the brain that causes wakefulness and sleep.

As Always Thank You for Reading
Love you all and
God Bless You!!!
