Provigil *was* expensive, until pretty recently--a lot of insurance companies wouldn't cover it, even for narcolepsy, w/o proof that it was "the only effective and safe treatment" for a given patient.

From what I understand, Barr is trying to manufacture a generic Provigil. Short-term, that means prices will drop a little bit; you won't see really affordable Provigil until *lots* of companies are allowed to make it, which will be a while (if Barr wins, it will be the only company allowed to make generic Provigil for a good bit of time, which will keep prices artificially high).

I've heard of people having their doctors order it for them from Canada. The FDA recently scheduled Provigil as a Schedule IV..usually, controlled substances are not allowed in international transport. But I don't think Provigil is scheduled in Canada, so I imagine you could still have a Canadian pharmacy fill your Rx.
