A non-branded radio campaign was launched "in select markets where shift work is a significant part of the working population," said Robert Repella in the call. We "expect to see the benefits coming out of that as we move through the year."

Cephalon also started a program with WebMD in the first quarter, he said. We've had "over 7 million visits to their website related to either NUVIGIL or disease area content."

Today it's doubtful that shift workers in the US make enough money to pay for Provigil or Nuvigil. In August 2010, one hundred 250mg tablets of Nuvigil cost $1,080, or $10.80 per tablet, and the price for 100 tablets of 200mg of Provigil was $1,855, or $18.55 per pill, at DrugStore.com.

If generic Provigil was to hit the market, patients who converted to Nuvigil would likely be pressured by payers to switch back to a cheaper Provigil generic. In the meantime, the same drug, sold as Modalert, can currently be purchased online from other countries for as low as $120 per hundred, at EuroDrugstore.
