New Drug Combats Jet Lag
A new drug called Nuvigil claims to combat the effects of jet lag and looks set to be approved by the USA FDA specifically for that use.
Although, its not a serious illness, and arguable not an illness at all, the makers Cephalon claim that the drug can help prevent accidents caused by uncontrolled onset of sleep when arriving in a new time zone, such as holiday makers picking up their rental cars without realising how tired their bodies are.
Some say that this is just another example of over medicalization of things that are perfectly natural and further encourage a culture of pill popping, while others are seeing this as a genuinely useful drug to help people and prevent accidents.
