Good morning, I am Dr Elliot. I am very sorry for how you are feeling. I can imagine it is very difficult at the moment. Unfortunately a drug like Modafinal needs to come from your own GP. I would also be very cautious as this drug can also be habit forming and therefore I think you need to be sensible here and address the underlying cause rather than just the symptoms. Are you registered with a GP?
