Provigil was originally prescribed to treat sleeping disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy.
Prior to Provigil, there was not a medication on the market to help with these kinds of disorders.
Provigils main purpose was to provide consumers with a boost of energy and awareness and to prevent sudden sleeping spells.
In addition to treating sleeping disorders, Provigil also proved helpful as a performance enhancer for professions that required heightened awareness, such as military pilots.
Provigil was also used to treat age-associated decline, Attention Deficit Disorder and fatigue from high-stress jobs.
Provigil Side Effects
While Provigil-use seemed promising at first, adverse side effects quickly began to show. Some of Provigils side effects include:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Anxiety and mania
- Fever, sore throat and vomiting
- Bruising, numbness, pain and muscle weakness
- White patches or sores on the inside of mouth or on lips
- Chest pains and uneven heart beats
Provigil has also been linked to a sometimes life-threatening skin disease known as Stevens - Johnson syndrome (SJS) or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. SJS is characterized by the detachment of the top layer of skin from the body. This often leads to both damaging and fatal infections.
If you or a loved one experienced a red skin rash while taking Provigil, it is important that you contact a doctor immediately, followed by contacting an experienced Provigil lawyer to see if you have a claim.
