Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

I understand your profession demands you to stay awake for prolonged period of time but being on drugs to stay awake is highly risky not only to you but also the other people on the road.

However Tab modafenil is frequently used by drivers, pilots and students to stay awake.

Please consult a physician for a prescription and do not consider this as my prescription to you

I wish you good health
