A friend of mine told me this morning to take a pill called provigil, 200 mg i think
He said it will make me concentrate better.
The problem is that its now 6 AM and i cannot sleep whatsoever. I am starting to panic!
I am now at the emergency but would like a second opinion. Is it safe to take sleeping pills with it?
The doctor here recommended i just wait it off cause she thinks its clearly the reason. I would also like to add that i donated part of my liver one month and a half ago

I recommend you wait for the medication to be gone from your body. Although sleep pill doesn't interact with it, you should wait because they could damage your liver because of the donation.
