There are many symptoms MS patients will need to address. MS provigil has been found to be a very effective drug to help combat fatigue and the need for excessive sleep, narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and has been approved by the FDA for those specific ailments. Many in the medical field are quite comfortable prescribing it because there seems to be little appeal as a recreational drug. There is no jolt to the central nervous system like that found with other stimulants including amphetamines, cocaine or ecstasy, to name a few.

While researchers and developers are still unsure exactly how this drug affects the sleep process, ms provigil seems to specifically target the urge to sleep. Recent scientific research has shown that the drives regulating sleep and wakefulness are not controlled by a single process. They have been found to be separate, but still interrelated, functions in the brain. It is not like a throttle on a boat that’s used to control the speed. Instead, it’s more like the functions served by a brake and accelerator in an auto.

It is projected that sleep research into this area is going to provide not only specific drugs for wakefulness, but those to address insomnia or to provide more effective rest and relaxation, too. It’s estimated that anywhere from 20% to 40% of the population in America suffers from chronic insomnia.


FDA Approval Has Not Been Granted For Multiple Sclerosis Provigil


It is important to note that the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved multiple sclerosis provigil for specific use for ms-related fatigue. However, it has been widely prescribed for exactly that presenting symptom. Some of the other benefits reported by users include feelings of mental clarity, improved memory and experiencing an enhanced mood.

The FDA has also approved provigil for use of the drug to address shift work sleep disorder. It has been found to be very effective aid for those that work night or swing shifts. It is suggested one pill be taken an hour before the start of a work shift. Otherwise, it is recommended to be taken at the same time each day.

MS provigil does need to discussed thoroughly with your doctor as there are some side effects that could lead to serious complications. Some have reported ‘rashes, chest pain, depression, anxiety, or signs of psychosis or mania’ after taking provigil. Always provide your doctor with a complete list of all medications and supplements you are currently taking to avoid possible interactions. There can also be a possibility that a patient may experience an allergic reaction. There also may be a loss of appetite, so food intake will need to be monitored.

As with many medications prescribed for MS patients, the benefits of using MS provigil may exceed the risks. It has been used extensively by the US military and many use it without experiencing any adverse effects. One last concern is that so far, the long-term effects are virtually unknown.
