Brief Answer: Prescription for Nuvigil request require phys.exam Detailed Answer: Hi my dear, I may understand your necessity to take Nuvigil (the trade name of generic Armodafinil) as per tiredness you feel. However, before taking it, your health status should be evaluated by your physician to rule out some undesirable side effects. Such physical examination, unfortunately, cannot be done by neither of the online doctors. Therefore, the requested prescription would be possible. Wishing good luck my dear! Dr.Alba
