Modafinil is a drug sold under different brand names including Provigil, Modalert and Modvigil. It has been prescribed in the EU and US since the 1990s to treat excessive sleepiness associated with narcolepsy. Many studies have confirmed the safety of Modafinil in recent years. The cognitive enhancing effects of Modafinil have become hugely popular among healthy adults. Because of its safety and few side effects, Modafinil is now one of the most commonly used smart drugs.
Armodafinil first came to market in 2007 under the brand name Nuvigil, followed by many generic forms such as Waklert and Artvigil. Modafinil is composed of an equal concentration of an S and R form of Modafinil molecules. Armodafinil, on the other hand, consists only of the R-form. Detailed information about the chemistry of the molecules can be found on the page 'Modafinil VS Armodafinil'. The R form may be the more potent form of the two and isolation from it could potentially reduce the side effects. So does this mean that Armodafinil is better than Modafinil? It depends on. There has been much speculation about the differences in effect between Armodafinil and Modafinil. These can probably be explained by differences between individuals. What has been scientifically proven is that Armodafinil has a longer half-life than Modafinil. This means that the body takes longer to eliminate the substance, so the effects last longer and are perceived as more powerful.
Modafinil is used by the military forces of many countries, including the United States Air Force. Astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) also take Modafinil during long missions. In ordinary life, Modafinil is mainly known by students and entrepreneurs who want to increase their productivity. Doctors also use it to stay focused during long surgeries. Athletes used it as an alternative doping drug until it was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2004. Modafinil has also been shown to be a safe and effective alternative to Ritalin in the treatment of ADHD. In addition, it ensures a reduction of negative symptoms in acute schizophrenia. Nevertheless, it is recommended to use modafinil and armodafinil with caution when suffering from psychological conditions.
Modafinil and Armodafinil, like amphetamines, increase alertness, but they are not classified as stimulants. The agents selectively increase alertness and wakefulness, putting them in their own category of “eugeroics”. Stimulants are characterized by withdrawal symptoms and a drop in energy after the effects work out. These side effects do not occur with Modafinil and Armodafinil.
Anyone who knows the film "Limitless" can paint a picture of the (positive) effects of Modafinil. It is also claimed that the film is based on Modafinil.
But if we rely on science, the following effects can be expected:
→ Increased wakefulness
→ Improved general cognition
→ Dramatic increase in mental stamina
→ Improvements in motivation, focus and attention
→ Improved mood
→ Faster reflexes and reaction
Taking the correct dose of Modafinil and Armodafinil is extremely important for optimizing your brain power. Depending on the neurochemistry of an individual, a higher or lower dose of nootropic agents will be required to obtain the desired effects. As the graph below shows, more Armodafinil or Modafinil does not always lead to more positive effects.
So the message is to determine your own optimal dose. A starter dose of 50 to 100mg Modafinil is enough to get an idea of the effects, the potency of the agent and your initial tolerance to the substance. For Armodafinil, a starter dose of 75mg is sufficient. Depending on the desired effects, the dose can be subsequently increased or decreased.
Modafinil and Armodafinil should not be combined with benzodiazepines (eg Valium), as unwanted interactions may occur. It is advisable to consult your doctor for interactions when taking prescription medications. In addition, medicating ailments without consulting a health specialist is strictly discouraged.
Modafinil and Armodafinil can cause mild side effects. Some users may experience headaches, nausea, and difficulty falling asleep. Less common side effects include a rash, nervousness and anxiety. It is important to stay hydrated to minimize the side effects. In addition, side effects can simply indicate that a lower dose is required. As described earlier (see "What is the correct dosage?"), It is important to know your optimal dose and not to exceed any limits.
Modafinil and Armodafinil products also have a synergistic effect with coffee and thus enhance each other's effect. If not taken into account, it can lead to unexpected side effects.
Modafinil and Armodafinil have little to no addiction risk for healthy adults. Rare cases of addiction have been associated with pre-dependence on cocaine. This was not a question of physical dependence, but of a psychological dependence on the substance.
Modafinil was first marketed with a patent under the brand name Provigil. When the patent expired, the active ingredient Modafinil was sold by many pharmaceuticals under their own brand names. These are so-called generic forms of a drug. Modafinil is now sold worldwide under many generic brand names including Modalert and Modvigil.
The two largest and most reliable manufacturers of Modafinil and Armodafinil have since been Sun Pharmaceuticals and HAB Pharma. The quality of their products is identical, but there are some functional differences. Sun Pharma's Modalert (Modafinil) is stronger than Modvigil, HAB Pharma's Modafinil product. For Armodafinil, Artvigil from HAB Pharma is often considered the most intense.
Modvigil and Modalert (Modafinil products) are usually recommended for beginners. Artvigil and Waklert (Armodafinil products) have longer lasting effects and are therefore more suitable for experienced users. For a detailed description of the differences between products, see the "Differences between brands" page. You can also order a test package to see for yourself what suits you best.
The duration of the effects varies from individual to individual and depends on the substance ingested. In general, the effects of Armodafinil last longer than those of Modafinil. The effects of Modalert (Modafinil) last for about 12 to 14 hours. Those from Modvigil (Modafinil) take about 8 to 10 hours. Waklert (Armodafinil) provides effects from about 12 to 16 hours and Artvigil (Armodafinil) is effective for 12 to 15 hours. It is recommended that you take Modafinil and Armodafinil early in the day to avoid interference with normal sleep patterns.
Piracetam is a drug of the racetam group that was discovered in the 1960's. This group of molecules has been developed to improve brain function. Their discovery laid the foundation for “nootropics” or nootropics. Although Piracetam is one of the first nootropic agents ever, it is still considered one of the most safe and effective substances in its industry. Piracetam improves cognition and general mental well-being by promoting the consumption of oxygen and glucose in the brain.
Piracetam prevents neurodegeneration from alcohol abuse, increases learning capacity and memory, improves focus, and reduces anxiety and depression. Users report increased sensory function and awareness. Piracetam is effective in the treatment of brain damage and shows positive results in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
Many studies have shown that Piracetam is safe and effective for both short and long term use. The toxicity of Piracetam is very low and no harmful waste products are accumulated with prolonged use. In addition, there is no risk of dependence or abuse.
Piracetam can be used daily without accumulating harmful substances. It can therefore be used for acute benefits such as improved cognition and learning, as well as for long-term purposes such as protection against neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's disease).
