Here is the important part of the article that needs to be highlighted, and avoid reading into anything that isn't there...

"Again, although these findings should not change how modafinil is used in the clinical setting under a physician's supervision, it does have implications for the possibility of diversion of the drug for nonmedical use as a cognitive-enhancement agent."

God forbid. It works on dopamine? It makes suffering people feel better? Oh no, we can't have that. Let's write an anti-provigil article.

Honestly, if someone who is perfectly healthy uses it to be a top achiever at the workplace or to get an A on an exam, sounds fine with me.

As far as getting hooked, I personally never felt any addiction to it in the 3 years I took it. In contrast, I was highly addicted to Paxil or Zyprexa or Prozac and even ST Johns Wort.

If one is concerned about being "hooked" on a drug, any drug, then they should probably not ever start it. Try stopping Luvox after taking it for years and you'll know what "hooked" is.

Cheers to Modafinil/Provigil. I think it is an unsung hero helping to fight chronic bedridden disaster illnesses worldwide. If someone else wants to abuse, I could care less.
