Mylan Launches Generic Provigil

Mylan announced the launch of Modafinil Tablets, the generic version of Cephalon's Provigil tablets.

Provigil, a Class IV narcotic, is indicated to improve wakefulness in patients with excessive sleepiness associated with narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS), and shift work sleep disorder (SWSD). It is also indicated as adjunct to standard treatment for underlying airway obstruction in OSAHS. Modafinil is a selective, non-amphetamine wakefulness-promoting agent that reduces excessive daytime sleepiness seen in narcolepsy without inducing anxiety or physical symptoms of CNS stimulation.

Modafinil Tablets will be available in 100mg and 200mg tablets.
