Does provigil have sulphur in it and would that be enough to cause a reaction? I am allergic to sulphur drugs. I was told it had a slight content as a binder.

In brief: Not to worry

People often confuse sulfa with sulfate and sulfite.
They sound similar but not really closely related in term of human biologic response.

however, most people with reactions to sulfa antibiotics do not react to non-antibiotic drugs with sulfa.
