This is weird!! I wrote an answer, submitted it & when I went back to edit something, what I'd written was gone! Here goes again.

Both modafinil (yes, it's Provigil in Canada too as well as Alertec) & adrafinil (Olmifon) are called eugeroic drugs meaning "good arousal". They're supposed to stimulate what needs stimulating without affecting other areas.

That may be hype as I've read that some experience headaches & dizziness on it. I'm prone to headaches & if anything, I'm getting slightly less on adrafinil. Some people seem to get a better effect from stims like Ritalin & Dexedrine, but I prefer the smoothness of adrafinil myself. Plus it doesn't leave me worn out like stims do.

Now to your important question - you're asking the wrong person. I'd been married for 23 years & when he finally decided to leave, I chose to remain celibate & have been for 5 years now. It's not from any side-effects of drugs but my own choice. I've read over as many posts on these drugs as I could find (sleep.net has lots) & info about the drugs from other sites & honestly can't say I've found anything mentioning sexual problems. I'd almost imagine the opposite as it makes me feel so alert, yet so mellow & relaxed at the same time.

My suggestion would be to try it for a short while to see if it works for you. If not, you simply stop them.
