Avoid Alzheimer's - hold the Provigil?

I've a hunch that this is true - lack of sleep linked to Alzheimer's.

In the past few years there's been a lot of interest in the misuse of modafinil (Provigil). It's being used to extend waking hours rather than to treat narcolepsy.

Maybe this isn't the smartest move ...

Speaking of which, I should go to bed now.

I mean that in jest, of course. I've been a loathed Drug Rep for many years, and a despised conservative even longer. Read: NOT Republican.

I earnestly look forward as a brother-geek, to your insitefull intellect every day. Thank you for sharing your keen mind with us of soo less cognitive abilities. My IQ goes up just by logging on to your bloggs.

What's your thoughts on Nuvigil?

Many thanks
