Provigil Abuse

How and Why Is Provigil Abused?

Provigil is a central nervous system stimulant (CNS stimulant). People often abuse CNS stimulants for a variety of reasons. They can produce feelings of euphoria, and people may abuse Provigil for the "high" it provides. CNS stimulants also can give people extra energy, and sometimes people abuse stimulants for this reason (such as students who use stimulants to stay up all night studying for finals). Also, people often abuse CNS stimulants to achieve weight loss (due to increased metabolism and decreased appetite caused by stimulants).
There seems to be no end to the creative ways people find to abuse substances, including prescription medications. Often, they are simply taken by mouth. Sometimes, they are smoked, snorted, or even injected. Snorting or injecting medications allows for quicker entry into the bloodstream, often causing greater effects. Keep in mind that snorting or injecting medications can lead to high drug levels in the blood, increasing the risk of side effects (including dangerous side effects).

Inappropriate Provigil Use

There are special rules and regulations for controlled substances (medications that have abuse potential). These rules limit refills on such medications and require special procedures for prescribing them. These rules and regulations are designed to reduce the abuse of controlled substances. More importantly, it is against federal law to transfer (give or sell) a controlled substance to any person without a valid prescription. This means that it is a federal offense to give or sell your Provigil to another person.
It may be possible to buy Provigil online without a prescription. This is just as illegal as buying it from a friend. In addition to being illegal, it may also be dangerous. Clearly, any business that is willing to sell a controlled substance without a prescription is not operating ethically or legally. Such businesses should not be trusted. No legitimate pharmacy will dispense Provigil without a prescription, and no legitimate physician will prescribe Provigil unless you are a "real" patient.
