Launch of Generic Nuvigil

Released: 06/01/2016   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Director

The generic equivalent of Nuvigil (armodafinil) has just been released, following FDA approval. Nuvigil is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by sleep apnea, narcolepsy or shift work sleep disorder.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand-name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand-name drugs.

Over the next 30 days, Carlisle Medical will be contacting physicians to inform them that the generic version of Nuvigil is available. Our management makes a difference.
