From this study (1 month ago):
I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing

Hi I'm male, 24, of Sri Lankan origin but born and raised in the United Kingdom, I'm adding these details as it was requested when attempting to reply to you.
My question is was this on Modafinil/Provigil/Nuvigil and if so which one please?
The comment below you is talking about statin which is a cholesterol reducing drug, so was wondering whether you were talking about the same. Thanks in advance.
