In brief: Yes

Yes. It is an fda approved drug for eds (excessive daytime sleepiness).
But i would try to determine why there is eds in the first place. A sleep study is a good start as well as an veal by a sleep specialist.

In brief: Yes

Provigil is indicated for excessive daytime sleepiness in narcolepsy, osa and shift work.
It is often very helpful but depending on the severity of your sleepiness significant residual may remain.
