Our expert says:
If your daughter is suffering from iron deficiency then she should take an iron-folic acid supplement like Ferro-Folic and also eat foods that are rich in iron: liver, red meat, fish, egg yolk, whole grains and cereals esp iron-fortified breakfast cereals, and dried fruit. Let her drink a glass of orange juice or eat half a grapefruit with her breakfast cereal as the vit C in the citrus helps with the absorption of iron. If the Provigil is causing sleeplessness then she must discuss this with the prescribing dr as it may be necessary to change her dose. Provigil is prescribed to prevent a condition called narcolepsy or excessive daytime sleepiness.
I hope your daughter feels better soon.
