Post Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Armodafinil Therapy
Well, darn. Dr. Boeve sent me summary information titled Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Armodafinil Therapy for Hypersomnia Associated with Dementia with Lewy Bodies

I intended to post it here, but it is a pdf file and those are not accepted.

If you'd like it, pm me and I'll email it.

The upshot of it is that the drug, Nuvigil, is safe, effective, and well tolerated. The details and exceptions are on the document. It is a small study -- 20 patients for 3 months, but it is certainly better than relying on the drug's ads! :lol:
