Although caffeine may well provide a needed boost for tired soldiers working overtime, PROVIGIL is not a replacement for sleep and is not intended to treat mere sleep deprivation.
Cephalon has studied PROVIGIL in sleep disorders and other serious medical conditions. Caffeine is not the treatment of choice for any of these more serious disorders.
There is tremendous interest from the medical community to explore the potential of PROVIGIL to help patients. We believe it is important that doctors have a complete understanding of all relevant scientific and medical information so that they can make independent and well-informed decisions on behalf of their patients.
Cephalon supports independent, accredited, continuing medical education programs that make this independent scientific exchange possible, but we do not control their content. In fact, these kinds of programs are not promotional and are permitted by the FDA regulations.
