Waklert 150 MG Description

Waklert 150mg Tablet is a 'wakefulness-promoting medicine'- belongs to the class of Eugeroics that is used to manage excessive sleepiness in people who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA - frequent pa

uses in breathing during sleep), narcolepsy (a sleep disease that causes excessive daytime sleepiness), and shift work sleep disorder (SWD - excessive sleepiness due to uncommon working schedules like graveyard shifts, early morning shifts, or rotational shifts). Waklert 150 mg Tablet contains the stimulant 'Armodafinil,' which is classified as a 'central nervous system (CNS) stimulant.' It works by activating the brain in order to boost the body's physical and mental activities. Headache, nausea, and insomnia (difficulty sleeping) are some of the most prevalent side effects of this medication. It can even make you feel dizzy and sleepy. These adverse effects, on the other hand, are only transient and normally go away on their own after a while. Always remember that this medicine should only be used if a doctor has prescribed it, as it is not a substitute for a healthy sleep pattern.
