Answer

Armodafinil [55] is an enantiomer of modafinil that has fewer side effects. It is indicated for the treatment of EDS associated with narcolepsy. The most common adverse effects are headache, nausea, dizziness, and difficulty sleeping. Its safety has not been established in children younger than 17 years.
