What is Nuvigil prescribed for?

Nuvigil is prescribed to people who suffer from excessive sleepiness, which may be the result of sleep disturbances due to sleep apnea or narcolepsy. People who do shift work and have developed shift work sleep disorder can also benefit from this medicine.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient of Nuvigil is armodafinil, a substance that reduces sleepiness. This medication cannot replace getting enough sleep. It should be used only by people with a sleep disorder.

Conditions treated by Nuvigil

Excessive Sleepiness Due to Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is characterized by interruptions in a person’s breathing during sleep. This is a serious sleep disorder, as people can repeatedly stop breathing in their sleep. When oxygen is restricted in the brain and other parts of the body, it can lead to serious complications over time.

People with sleep apnea often feel tired during the day, as the quality of their sleep is continuously disrupted. Nuvigil is not a cure for sleep apnea but can help patients deal with the feeling of extreme fatigue during the day.


Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that affects sleep patterns. Patients experience episodes of daytime sleepiness and can often fall into deep sleep in the middle of daytime activities. Nuvigil is not a cure for narcolepsy but it can help patients feel more alert during the daytime.

Shift Work Sleep Disorder

Shift work sleep disorder (SWSD) is a condition in which a person’s circadian rhythm is disturbed as result of shift work. In addition to feeling tired and sleepy during the times they need to be alert, patients may also have trouble falling asleep when they need to.  Tiredness and lack of concentration are additional symptoms.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
