Directions for Safe Use
Take Modafinil right as recommended by a qualified doctor. Do not change the dose or duration of the treatment course, as it can lead to unwanted reactions and harmful side effects. Take the drug with or without food. Keep in mind that it may take Modafinil longer to work if used with food.
A single Modafinil tablet should be taken an hour before the beginning of work to eliminate the symptoms of shift work sleep disorders. Use the drug in the morning if you want to treat the signs of sleep apnea or narcolepsy. Extra Modafinil dose will not promote better effects but will cause severe overdose reactions, so avoid doubling the dose.
