Modafinil

Modafinil is a drug used to treat sleeping disorders due to narcolepsy and other sleep disorders including disruption of breathing while sleeping by stimulating the brain and promoting wakefulness. However, the drug doesn’t cure these conditions and only produces these effects for as long as it is taken.

Though the exact mechanism of action of modafinil is unknown, modafinil is known to increase the production of dopamine (a neurotransmitter essential for communication between nerves) in the body and prolong the duration of its action by inhibiting the reuptake of dopamine by nerves and dopamine transporters.

Research has shown that modafinil might have the potential to become addictive for addiction-prone people. The wakefulness or consciousness provided by the drug can become habit-forming. However, abuse of the drug is rare and medical intervention can be instrumental in overcoming increased drug tolerance of its users.

Modafinil can be gotten from pharmacies in the US. To do this, users need a doctor’s prescription as the drug is not sold over-the-counter. This drug can also be gotten off-prescription from online pharmacies and getting it this way is a lot cheaper than the prescription-based process.

A smart drug is a therapeutic agent that is considered able to improve the intellectual capacity of its users and those who suffer from neurological diseases and psychological disorders. Modafinil has been noted to increase wakefulness and alertness, improve focus, enhanced mental functions and faculties, and improve memory as well as productivity in its users.

Generally, modafinil takes 30-60 minutes to start working after ingestion. When taken with food, it takes longer to produce its effect. It is an easily absorbed drug, hence, it is easy for the body to absorb it. The peak concentration of modafinil in the body is achieved about 2 to 4 hours after absorption.

Modafinil when taken with antidepressants has been shown to improve mood, relieve fatigue and excessive sleepiness, and improve focus, alertness, and overall cognitive function. It can therefore be used as adjuvant therapy in the treatment of depression.

Research has shown that Modafinil can be used alongside antidepressants to reduce the severity of the condition. Modafinil gives you a mood boost and improves overall cognitive function. It also improves focus, relieves fatigue which is common in depressed patients, and informs better decision making.

Modafinil is used off-label to treat chronic fatigue. It essentially acts by altering dopamine levels and causing brain stimulation. This stimulation of the brain leads to more wakefulness and alertness, as well as relief of fatigue, making you more energetic.

Modafinil is considered safe for most people, it has a low incidence of side effects and has a high-tolerance margin. There’s also little potential for abuse of this drug.

Since Modafinil works by increasing wakefulness in users, these prolonged hours of wakefulness can increase the heart rate, and cause chest pains, irregular heart rate, and high blood pressure. In healthy patients, this drug produces little to no side effects.

Modafinil is a drug that improves focus and overall cognitive function. It can be used in cases where concentration is required e.g., ADHD. It has also been shown to have more positive effects than the placebo treatment of ADHD.

100mg of Modafinil can produce up to 12 hours of

wakefulness.  A recent study has shown that users can rise and go another 40 hours after sleeping without taking another dose. Staying awake this way produces no visible side effects and users are almost always t full mental capacity.

While both drugs produce the same effects, Armodafinil may be considered the stronger version of both drugs. A recent study has shown that Armodafinil may be 1.33 times more effective than modafinil. Armodafinil also lasts longer hours than modafinil in the body.

Adderall is a more potent stimulant, hence, the need to regulate and often curb its use. Modafinil, on the other hand, is a much milder stimulant and can thus be used in various situations with little risk. Adderall is also a direct CNS stimulant while modafinil is not.

Modafinil has been shown to improve short-term memory but it does not affect long-term memory. The effects of this drug are only visible for as long as the drug is in the body system. Once, the drug is completely metabolized and excreted, these effects wear off.

While it is true that modafinil improves cognitive function, focus, alertness, memory, and response activity, it is unlikely that it makes you smarter. It simply enhanced cognitive function by making you more focused and aware rather than improving brain capacity.

“Modafinil has gained renown as a “first-class smart-drug.” This reputation as well as several scientific studies have proven Modafinil’s effectiveness across a wide variety of mental traits. While some use it as a cognitive enhancer, modafinil has other benefits which include:

  • Improved memory

It has been shown to improve both working and episodic memory (i.e. immediate and unique memories) in depressed and healthy individuals.

  • Enhanced alertness

Modafinil has been shown tto improve mental alertness and optimize performance in both healthy and sleep-deprived people. In some cases, it helps to keep one’s mind from disractions and focus on the task at hand to ensure maximal productivity and goal achievement.

  • Longer-lasting energy

Modafinil helps fatigued and sleep-deprived people by reducing their fatigue and inducing wakefulness. This helps them to perform well at tasks for sustained number of hours without feeling tired or slowing down.

Modafinil can be used by anyone, who wishes to work late, stay awake, enhance their cognitive function, or brighten their moods. It is prescribed for people have shift work sleep disorder (SWSP), narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS), and excessive sleepiiness. Modafinil has been adopted by students, doctors and even astronauts as a cognitive enhancer and to help them stay awake and focused for longer hours.

While Modafinil is a much milder stimulant than Adderall and Cocaine, it is equally as effective as these drugs. The benefits of modafinil which range from wakefulness to cognitive enhancement can be gotten by taking the drug. The single effective dose of modafinil is 200mg and can produce effects lasting up to 15 hours in its users.

There are a number of food/drug interactions with modafinil which can either hamper its effects, potentiate its actions or aggravate its side effects.

Modafinil isn’t recommended for patients who take drugs for heart conditions, liver disease, psychotic disorders and renal dysfunction.

Alcohol and grape-fruit drinks are also known to negatively affect the effectiveness of Modafinil and aggravate its side effects.

Modafinil can also hamper the effects of steroid-based contraceptives.

It is important to pay attention to these drug interactions and risks associated before the use of this drug and its variants.

The single effective dose of Modafinil is 200mg (up to 400mg, depending on the patient’s response). If you are taking 100mg or less, you might not experience any effectiveness. However, taking it with alcohol and other depressants can hamper the effectiveness of the drug.

If there are still no results after sustained usage of the drug, it is advised to stop usage and see a doctor.
