“Studies have shown that Provigil can help people beat cocaine addition. It’s not a magic pill by any means, and in trials it was effective for some patients in conjunction with behavioral therapy.
Why does Provigil help? Provigil enhances brain levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Repeated cocaine use has been shown to deplete glutamate levels. By increasing the levels, Provigil may work at the core of the craving for the drug.
What if you need to treat cocaine addiction? Provigil is not a standard therapy (yet). Treatment experts may not be used to it and may prefer other methods. However, any doctor can prescribe Provigil for any reason he or she deems legitimate.
A recent study at UCLA showed that some medications, including Provigil, could be useful in methamphetamine treatment.”
