Armodafinil Addiction Hotline
24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential844-207-6576
Armodafinil is in a class of medications called wakefulness-promoting agents which alter how someone’s sleep-wake cycle works. Since armodafinil works like stimulants, it has a risk for addiction, although small. If a person has a history of substance use disorder, the risk is much greater, and they should carefully follow dosage instructions to avoid misuse.
When a person is taking armodafinil, they should take it as directed. For people with narcolepsy, armodafinil is taken every morning to prevent daytime sleepiness and for shift workers, it is taken an hour before they start working. It is normally taken without food because the interaction can delay the effects of armodafinil.
Common side effects of armodafinil are:
- Dry mouth
Serious side effects that require medical attention include:
- Swelling of the eyes, face, tongue, throat, etc.
- Severe rash and itching
- Difficulty breathing or swalling
- Chest pain
- Suicidal thoughts
