NCT01800097
First received: October 23, 2012
Last updated: June 23, 2015
Last verified: June 2015
  Purpose
This study is an investigator initiated placebo controlled double blinded trial. The hypothesis is that treatment with modafinil positively will affect behavioural and cognitive rehabilitation after stroke, causing the treatment group to experience decreased fatigue, increased endurance, improved skills of sustaining attention and faster reaction times. The cognitive rehabilitation will show in increased muscle mass, decreased osteoporosis and better physical performances due to a higher level of physical activity.
