My Hospice doctor has prescribed Provigil (Modafinil) for CRF (Cancer Related Fatigue). I have been sleeping way too much so I requested we give this a try. I've been reading that studies indicate there is not much difference in response between Provigil and placebo. But to the contrary, reading results from a GRACE search I see that our beloved Joe S.'s wife got good results, and I trust that he was a very good source of reliable information.
So my questions are, am I missing anything? Any new information/studies?
To our faculty: Have you prescribed and had success with this drug?
To fellow patients/caregivers: Do you have any experience or advice on the use of Provigil for fatigue?
I am not currently undergoing any type of treatment, but I am on a variety of drugs, including several for pain, many of which list drowsiness as a side effect.
Thanks in advance for all replies. With much love and respect to all,
