I suffered from Sleep paralysis hallucinations and was diagnosed with mild Narcolepsy and was prescribed Ritalin (methylphenidate) then Provigil (Modafinil) and finally Nuvigil (Armodafinil). They all worked, but got better with each change. I'm now only using the Nuvigil on an as needed usage. Usually I'll take it about mid morning when I feel drowsy or unable to focus.
