Sunosi Will Compete With Nuvigil or Provigil for Excessive Daytime Sleepiness

Sunosi (suh-NOH-see, solriamfetol) will be a new Rx option for excessive daytime sleepiness.

Think of Sunosi as similar to armodafinil (Nuvigil) or modafinil (Provigil). All three are approved to improve wakefulness in adults with obstructive sleep apnea or narcolepsy...and are C-IV meds.

If you dispense Sunosi, use the "Sun" in the brand name as a clue that it's for daytime sleepiness...and taken upon awakening.
