Modafinil General Description
Modafinil acts as a stimulant for the nervous system and is used to treat narcolepsy, fatigue and drowsiness. In some cases, the drug may be prescribed as an adjuvant for ADHD.
According to the classification, the drug is referred to as a nootropic – a drug that affects neurometabolic processes in the body and stimulate brain activity, which is responsible for memory and mental development. The drug increases the resistance of the brain to stress and attacks.
It was invented in the 1970s by the Lafon Group company, and in 1972 it entered the market and began to be actively used as a stimulant of brain activity. In 1986, studies showed that Modifinil not only treats narcolepsy, but can also eliminate the need for sleep for a while. In 1993, the company sold the rights to the drug’s manufacture to an American company called Cephalon. In 1994, the drug was launched into mass production and began to be used in the military industry to increase the endurance of soldiers. When taken at 100 milligrams every eight hours, the drug completely eliminated the need for sleep, allowing the military personnel to remain alert for a long time. During testing on pilots who were given Modafinil at 600 milligrams divided into three doses it was revealed that they remained alert for 88 hours without losing the skills of controlling the fighter jet.
By increasing histamine production in the hypothalamus, the drug can improve memory and concentration. After conducting research and confirming the effectiveness of the medication, Modvigil was used in medicine for narcolepsy, which is characterized by bouts of drowsiness in a period of clarity and may be accompanied by temporary limb paralysis.
In addition to narcolepsy, Provigil is used to treat depression, lack of attention, sclerosis and acts as an antidepressant.
Due to its ability to increase endurance to loads and the effect similar to amphetamine, the drug gained popularity in sports. The drug was frequently used in competitions, which is why Modafinil was included in the list of banned performance-enhancing substances. This is why bodybuilders use it only in post-competitive periods.
Alertek is commonly used in medicine to treat fibromyalgia, fatigue, dystrophy, Parkinson's syndrome and paralysis, as well as for decreasing appetite and losing weight. After taking the medication, the appetite decreases by 38%, which results in rapid fat burning and weight loss.
Nowadays Modalert is being considered as a possible part of treatment of drug addiction and primary biliary cirrhosis.
The use of Modifinil by athletes allows them to remain in good shape and achieve their goals by utilizing the full potential of their bodies. Acting as an effective stimulant medication, the drug increases intelligence and contributes to the development of mental capacities. It relieves stress and fatigue quite well, and also does not cause dependence, which is its undeniable advantage.

The drug does not negatively affect the function of internal organs, is not addictive and provides users with energy. It also increases the level of orexin, which is responsible for the wakeful state. The drug increases the production of dopamine, which is responsible for the development of brain activity, attention and memory. It increases serotonin, the hormone which contributes to good mood, and has a stimulating effect on BDNF, thus restoring and improving memory. The drug increases the production of norepinephrine, which is responsible for the transportation of blood flow to the heart, brain and other organs.

Modafinil Possible Side Effects
The drug does not cause adverse reactions if used properly. However, an overdose may result in nausea, headache, anxiety, diarrhea, dizziness, unrest, sleep disturbance, muscle and back pain.
If these symptoms occur, users must stop using the drug and consult a doctor.
Modafinil Administration and Dosage
The recommended dosage of the drug varies from 150 to 250 milligrams per day. To treat drowsiness, 100 milligrams per day Modafinil are quite enough. Dosages can be divided into several administrations.
If you forgot to take the drug, it is better to do so as soon as you remember and in no case should users increase the dosage of a single intake. The effect of taking Modifinil does not occur immediately, but an hour after administration.
To get a boost of energy, bodybuilders use the drug an hour before training, and at 100 milligrams during the day to relieve fatigue. The drug can be taken during a cycle of 10 days to treat drowsiness or used sporadically to increase energy.
Based on practice, experienced athletes recommend using Modafinil starting with one tablet. If the athlete weighs over 80 kg, then the dosage may be increased. The drug goes well combined with caffeine. To do this, after waking up in the morning users should take 100-300 milligrams of Modafinil and 100-200 milligrams of caffeine, all washed down with plenty of water. Then lie down for a half-hour nap. After the complete awakening, a boost of energy will last for a whole day.
It’s also possible to take the drug an hour and a half before work, and do gymnastics for faster awakening – for example, do 20 pushups from the floor, hold a plank position for 30 seconds, squat 25 times and then go about your business.
Using Modafinil after 4PM is not recommended, as this will affect the healthy sleep phase.
