Pharma company Cephalon is trying to win FDA approval for one of its drugs, Nuvigil, to be used specifically to fight jet lag. How does it do this magical task? By keeping you awake. It's a stimulant. It "would be approved to treat only the sleepiness associated with jet lag disorder - not to shift the body's clock to the new time zone." So your jet lag treatment options would be as follows:
1. Nuvagil, a pill that costs $9. It will wake you up.
2. Coffee. It will wake you up.
3. Recreational drugs that wake you up.
4. Sleep. Later, wake up.
Wake us up when a real magic pill is here.
