Re: Modafinil does enhance cognition, review finds

Please note that the last sentence of the article ("[Modafinil] is now out of patent and produced by a number of generic companies as Provigil.") is reversed. Provigil is the proprietary name for Cephalon's product, but the generic product is modafinil.
