White House went to the medical unit for Provigil


One person who worked at the medical unit under both the Obama and Trump administrations said there was such a “loose control of the controlled medications” that one high-profile Obama administration official who was leaving the White House went to the medical unit for Provigil. The drug promotes alertness and helps individuals stay awake.
It was treated as a “parting gift,” the person said, and the outgoing administration official was given around 20 Provigil pills. It is not clear whether this official was ever seen by a White House doctor.
