Top Hillary aide at State Dept. researched drug used by Parkinson’s, Alzheimers patients

Hillary Clinton insists her emails “are so boring,” having once said of the more than 30,000 deleted emails that they were about mundane things like “planning Chelsea’s wedding [and] yoga routines,” but you may be surprised at what can be discovered with a little diligence.

Such as a top Clinton aide at the State Department doing a deep dive on the drug Provigil — a  stimulant commonly used to treat narcolepsy, sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.

… and sometimes used by patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.

The Daily Caller reported that among the previously released Clinton emails, Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser, is seen instructing his former boss about Provigil, which he said “was invented by the military.”

“Provigil is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by narcolepsy or shift work sleep disorder (sleepiness during scheduled waking hours among people who work at night or on rotating shifts),” Sullivan wrote.

More from The Daily Caller:

Sullivan also noted that Provigil is often prescribed to treat “excessive sleepiness in patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.”

He stated that Modafinil — the drug’s original name — “gained attention in the medical community because it is the first effective stimulant with no significant potential for abuse” before explaining “it can be used for two to three day stretches at a time, with few known side effects and little risk of addiction.”
