Is Provigil or a (generic) alternative in SA?

I was prescribed Ptovigil a couple of years ago, got one month of the script filled and then got told by the pharmacy (Clicks) they were out of stock. Every time I go in to ask (as well as at DisChem), I'm told you don't have any and there 'is a problem with the supplier.' I assume that Provigil is no longer available in SA, but are there any alternatives?
