That first line is terribly misleading. It doesn't treat sleep apnea. It allegedly treats a SYMPTOM of sleep apnea. That's like saying Phenegran treats a migraine.

Your are exactly on point Paula! I am sure that Teva is not claiming that Provigil treats sleep apnea!! They would be in big FDA trouble related to label claims if that were the case. This is a perfect example where some 3rd party story writer is doing a soppy job!.

Teva's statement seems to be buried deeper in the article where it is stated "Teva subsidiary Cephalon will produce both the generic and brand versions of Provigil, which treats sleep apnea".
