Modalert 200 tablet is used in the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy. It improves wakefulness and reduces the tendency to sleep during the day, thus restoring a normal sleep cycle.

Modalert Tablets should be taken at a regular time each day to maintain a constant level in the blood. It is important to avoid skipping doses as this may exacerbate symptoms.

Narcolepsy

If you have narcolepsy, you may feel sleepy during the day regardless of how much you slept the night before. This feeling of extreme daytime sleepiness can make it hard to focus and function during the day.

Some people with narcolepsy also have sudden episodes of muscle weakness (cataplexy). These attacks of muscle weakness usually affect the muscles that control speech and movement. They can last for a few minutes.

These symptoms are caused by a problem with how your brain regulates your sleep and wake cycles. You may fall into REM (rapid eye movement) sleep directly from non-REM sleep or wake up too soon after sleeping at night. The resulting sleepiness can cause problems at work, school, or other places you need to be.

To diagnose narcolepsy, your healthcare provider will ask about your medical history and perform a physical exam. Your healthcare provider will probably also want to do a sleep study.

The most common way to test for narcolepsy is the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT). This test measures how long it takes you to fall asleep during two or more naps. It also measures how long you spend in REM sleep.

Waklert 150 mg improves wakefulness and reduces the need for naps in people with narcolepsy. It can also be used to improve wakefulness in shift workers with narcolepsy and OSA.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep-related disordered breathing. It causes a narrowing of the throat, which makes it hard to breathe. It can lead to pauses in breathing (apnea), or a decrease in oxygen intake (hypopnea).

Obstructive sleep apnea can cause headaches, dry mouth, and nose, weight gain, trouble concentrating, and mood changes. It can also increase your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. It can even increase your risk of stroke and death.

The cause of obstructive sleep apnea may be related to your anatomy or your habits. You may have more of it if you're overweight, or if your upper airway is smaller than normal.

It can also happen if you're sleep-deprived or if your throat muscles relax too much when you sleep.

To diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, your doctor will ask about your symptoms and may do an exam. Your doctor might also recommend a sleep study (also called a polysomnogram).

This test checks your heart and breathing while you're asleep. You'll stay at a hospital or sleep center for the night. You may get a mask to wear to help your doctor measure your sleep.

Your doctor will probably prescribe a CPAP device to treat your sleep apnea. You might also try losing weight, changing your sleeping position, or using a nebulizer to help with breathing.

Shift Work Disorder

In some cases, the schedules involved in shift work can lead to problems with sleep. If you struggle with sleeping when your body wants to and feel tired even after a good night’s rest, you may have shift work sleep disorder (SWSD).

This condition causes the circadian rhythm in your body to be out of sync with your work schedule, leading to insomnia and fatigue.

The sun’s natural light triggers melatonin production, which signals the body to sleep. Cortisol levels rise in the morning to give you energy.

But when you have SWSD, melatonin drops at the time when you should be getting up and your cortisol levels spike when you’re awake. This can lead to poor concentration and an inability to get enough restful sleep.

Some people are more prone to developing SWSD than others. Night owls, for example, tend to have more trouble with morning shifts than they do with evening shifts. Other factors that increase your risk of developing SWSD include stress, a genetic predisposition for sleeping at certain times of the day, and age.

You can often manage SWSD by adjusting your lifestyle and sleep habits. For example, you can try to get more restful sleep by using blackout curtains and keeping a regular sleep schedule. You can also try to reduce your caffeine intake and avoid drinking it close to bedtime.

Other Conditions

Sleep disorders can cause a great deal of inconvenience and are associated with a high incidence of work-related accidents, poor performance at school or home, and increased health risks.

They can also lead to other symptoms like narcolepsy, insomnia, periodic limb movements, and difficulty falling asleep. Modalert 200 mg improves wakefulness and helps you get a good night’s sleep, which in turn restores normal circadian rhythm.

We have found that treatment with 200 mg of modafinil significantly reduced the extreme sleepiness experienced by patients with shift-work sleep disorder and resulted in a small improvement in their performance as compared to placebo.

However, a residual level of sleepiness was present in these patients even after treatment with modafinil, suggesting the need for even more effective interventions to reduce this serious sleep problem.

Do not drink alcohol while taking this medication as it can increase the chances of side effects. Headache, nausea, nervousness, diarrhea, indigestion, and backache are some common side effects of Modalert 200 mg.

It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions and to take the medicine at a fixed time every day. Inform your doctor if you have any mood swings, suicidal thoughts, or any other problems while you are using this medicine. Keep this medicine away from children and from people who have had seizures.
