Lean Away From Sunosi for Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
Sunosi (suh-NOH-see, solriamfetol) will be a new Rx for excessive daytime sleepiness.
Think of Sunosi as similar to armodafinil (Nuvigil) or modafinil (Provigil). All three are approved to improve wakefulness in adults with obstructive sleep apnea or narcolepsy...and are C-IV meds.
You'll hear Sunosi is "dual-acting" on dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. Armodafinil and modafinil may work by affecting dopamine.
