Forgot name of "Stay Awake" Drug

Hi folks -

First post, so forgive me

I was watching the Airline marathon on A and E the other night - and there was a commercial, just about every half hour, for a new drug to help stay awake during the day - mentioned shift workers and other reasons - but I can't remember the name.

It begins with an "A" - and was in a triangular box, and the pills were red, but I can't remember the name to save myself. I've searched the net, but have had no luck. Any chance anyone has seen the commerical? If so - please let me know what it was!

I am taking a drug called Provigil that has helped me a lot with daytime alertness and sleepiness. It doesn't start with an A but it could have a generic name.

Yeah - I've tried Provagil - it really does nothing for me, and I don't know why - but thanks for trying

It's called Altovis.

Hope it works for you.
It's all a matter of perspective!
