Modafinil Precautions

What special diet should I follow while taking this medicine?

Ask your doctor if you can eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice while taking this medicine. What should I do if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, skip it. Wait until the next time you are scheduled to take modafinil and then take your regular dose. If you take modafinil too late in your waking hours, you may find it harder to sleep. Do not double the dose to make up for a missed one.

How should I store or dispose of this medicine?

Keep this product in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and in a cool, dry place (never in the bathroom).

Store modafinil in a safe place, so that no one else can take it by accident or on purpose. Keep track of how many tablets are left so you will know if you are missing any.

It is important to keep all medications out of the sight and reach of children, because many containers (such as weekly pill boxes, and those containing eye drops, creams, patches, and inhalers) are not child-resistant and can be easily opened by small children. In order to protect them from poisoning, always use safety caps and immediately place medications in a safe place, one that is up and away from their sight and reach. http://www.upandaway.org/es/

Medications that are no longer needed should be disposed of in an appropriate manner to ensure that pets, children and others cannot consume them. However, you should not flush these medications down the toilet. Instead, the best way to dispose of your medications is through a drug take-back program. Talk to your pharmacist or contact your local trash/recycling department to learn about drug take-back programs in your community. See the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website, for more information on how to safely dispose of medications if you do not have access to a drug take-back program. What should I do in case of an overdose?

In case of an overdose, call the Poison Control Helpline at 1-800-222-1222. Information is also available online at https://www.poisonhelp.org/help. If the victim has collapsed, had a seizure, has difficulty breathing, or cannot be awakened, call emergency services immediately at 911. Symptoms of overdose include, but are not limited to:

difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep agitation restlessness confusion hallucinations (seeing objects or hearing non-existent voices) Nervousness Uncontrollable shaking of any part of the body fast, slow, or pounding heartbeat Chest pain nausea diarrhea

What other important information should I know?

Keep all appointments with your doctor.

Do not let anyone else use your medication. It is a crime to sell or give modafinil as a gift. Ask your pharmacist how to refill your prescription.

It is important that you keep a written list of all the medicines you are taking, including those you received with a prescription and those you bought without a prescription, including vitamins and dietary supplements. You should have the list every time you visit your doctor or are admitted to a hospital. It is also important information in case of an emergency.

If copyright were abolished...

Students could cut and paste edited articles from other authors/publications.

They needn't actually write any 'original' material themselves.

They should be obliged to credit their sources of course, perhaps even indicate (without too much distraction) which author wrote what.

As long as the student is honest about it, this is not plagiarism.

The moment the student lies and claims authorship of another's work is the moment they get the book thrown at them.

Of course, a student has a right to determine whether their work is published (and their college cannot claim this right is theirs via 'a work for hire'), but that is a separate issue from the ability for the college to compare their work (without release) with other published works.

Of course, an easy get out clause is simply for the student to declare that they have cut & pasted various edited texts, but they've forgotten precisely which bits they wrote and which bits someone else wrote. Demerits for incompetence. But, then the student can also submit their work to a text comparison service and cite insertions accordingly.

Copying is good. Lying is wrong.

As a law professor once told me, "Copying one author in your paper will be considered 'plagiarism'. Copying more than two will be considered 'research'."
