An observational study provides evidence that modafinil increases alertness in fatigued patients with past medical history of brainstem diencephalic stroke or multiple scleros…

Low Prevalence of Sleep Disorders in Demyelinating Disease in a Northern Tenerife Population Study Objectives:Sleep disorders are seen in patients with demyelinating disease (DD) more often than in the general population.
