Actually it has been recently approved for Shift Work Sleep Disorder. They estimate 6 million people work nights or rotating shift and 25% or 1.5 million people have difficuly staying awake at work... I would be williing to bet of those 1.5 million people alot of them are nurses, doctors, police officers or others who have peoples lives in their hands.
I can tell you with relative certaintly that there are alot of sleep deprived people out there with lives in their hands. I for one want the most alert, least impaired taking are of me. Someone sleepy in my book is impaired, just as much as someone high or drunk.
This drug is relatively new so is one impaired if they are taking it, I dont know that remains to be seen. Are they more impaired than a sleepy
person, agiain I dont know.

I would change my hours before I took a substance to get me through. These drugs are not without risks and have specific indications. Keeping someone awake for the nightshift isn't one of them. Just my opinion.
