Percentage of Patients With at Least Minimal Improvement From Baseline in the Clinical Global Impression of Change (CGI-C) Rating as Related to Late Shift Sleepiness at Endpoint [ Time Frame: Baseline and week 6 (or last observation after baseline) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The Clinical Global Impression of Change (CGI-C) is an assessment performed by the clinician, evaluating the change in the patient's symptoms over time. The clinician categorizes the change as: very much improved, much improved, minimally improved, no change, minimally worse, much worse, or very much worse. The data presented here represents the percentage of patients whose condition showed at least minimal improvement in the CGI-C rating as related to late shift sleepiness (defined as the period 0400-0800, including the commute home).

Efficacy and Tolerability of Armodafinil in Adults With Excessive Sleepiness Associated With Shift Work Disorder
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Tolerability of Armodafinil Treatment (150 mg) in Improving Clinical Condition Late in the Shift and in Improving Functional and Patient-Reported Outcomes in Adult Patients With Excessive Sleepiness Associated With Shift Work Disorder

The primary objective of the study is to determine whether armodafinil treatment is more effective than placebo treatment in patients with excessive sleepiness associated with shift work disorder (SWD) by measuring improved clinical condition late in the shift, including the commute home.

Excessive Sleepiness
  • Drug: Armodafinil
    At the baseline visit, patients who continued to meet eligibility criteria were randomly assigned (1:1) to receive either 150 mg of armodafinil or matching placebo treatment only on nights worked for 6 weeks. Study drug was taken once nightly, 30 to 60 minutes prior to the start of the night shift, on nights worked. Armodafinil treatment was titrated as follows (only on nights worked): the first dose was 50 mg (1 tablet), the second and third doses were 100 mg (2 tablets), and the fourth and subsequent doses were 150 mg (3 tablets). Placebo tablets matching armodafinil tablets were administered on the same schedule.
