I have MS. I have a lot of trouble mid-day staying alert at my factory job. I come near to dozing off & my Neurologist prescribes me Modafinil 200 mg. It somewhat helps, but is so very very expensive. I would like advice on whether the Stay Awake pills might help my sleepiness while at work instead of taking the modafinil? And is it safe if only taken during my workday?
