Modafinil is a medication known as a wakefulness promoting agent, which is used for the treatment of narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnoea and shift work sleep disorder. These disorders are different in many ways but share a similarity in that one of the main symptoms is extreme sleepiness which can affect their day-to-day life. Known under the brand names Provigil, Alertec and Modvigil, this effective medication has the power to change the lives of those who take it. Whereas prior to taking this medication they may be unable to hold down a job, drive a vehicle or maintain social relationships, with the help of Modafinil 200mg they find themselves able to live normal lives.

Although it is commonly known under the brand names mentioned above, it is also available to buy Modafinil in the UK as a generic medication. Generic medications are non-original versions of medications that can be produced because the original manufacturer's patent elapsed, allowing a range of other pharmaceutical companies to make the same medicine, at much lower prices. They can do this by saving on costs such as development and advertising. In turn, these costs are then passed onto the customer, to entice them to purchase the generic version as opposed to the branded form.
Also known as a eugeroic, Modafinil was first discovered by a French pharmaceutical company, Laboratoire L Lafon, following their discovery of its precursor, Adrafinil in 1974. After they were unable to gain consistent results in treating narcolepsy with Adrafinil, they discovered a derivate of it, called Modafinil. Following this, they started to test Modafinil in studies treating narcolepsy and found that it was effective in excessive daytime sleepiness. The results from these studies led to the French army providing this medication to their troops in 1991, which was a successful test, allowing the soldiers to stay alert during the Gulf War. In 1998 it was approved for the treatment of narcolepsy by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and then in 2003 it was approved for use for shift work sleep disorder and obstructive sleep apnoea. In the UK it was approved for use in December 2002, so you are now able to buy Modafinil online in the UK.
Modafinil pills are prescribed for a variety of different conditions, as they are useful for any condition where excessive sleepiness is a symptom. These conditions are split into on-label and off-label uses. An on-label use is a condition that a medication has been specifically approved for. An off-label use is one where the medication is known to work for the off-label purpose, but it has not specifically received official medical approval for the medication to be used for that purpose.
The on-label uses of Modafinil are:
As previously mentioned, there are also off-label uses for this medication. One off-label use is non-medical, and that is people using Modafinil for studying. Modafinil is often described as a 'nootropic', otherwise known as 'smart drug' it belongs to a group of drugs called Nootropics. This is because not only does it allow the user to have more control over when they need to stay awake when otherwise they would be falling asleep, but it also is said to increase focus. This can assist students to study and revise harder, concentrate better in class, and pass exams where otherwise they might fail, due to their increased ability to focus. In the same manner, it can be used for work, to meet a short deadline, or to elevate the level of work that you produce, hence why so many people are now trying to buy Modafinil online.
Modafinil works in a distinctly different manner to other stimulants such as amphetamines, as it does not produce the euphoric effects that can often result in addiction. There are several theories on the exact workings of the medication. It is thought that it regulates the neurotransmitter (brain chemical) dopamine in the body via the central nervous system. It significantly increases the levels of dopamine in the brain by blocking the dopamine transporters which remove dopamine from brain synapses. This increased dopamine is thought to allow us to stay awake. It is also thought to work on other neurotransmitters in the brain, GABA, and serotonin, to stop tiredness too.
These two medications are similar in the way that they are both prescribed to treat narcolepsy, as well as both being used off-label to increase focus and concentration. In fact, a group of researchers in Germany and Sweden conducted a study where they took 39 competitive chess players, and provided them with Modafinil, Ritalin, caffeine, or a placebo. The results of the study were fascinating, in that Modafinil boosted performance by 15%, Ritalin boosted performance by 13% and caffeine by 9%. The placebo did not boost performance at all. From this study, it can be seen that these two medications are similar in the way that they work, but Modafinil is slightly more effective as a brain enhancer. As a result of studies such as these, professional chess players are banned by the World Chess Federation (WCF) from taking Modafinil or Ritalin and must keep their levels of caffeine extremely low in the body, for them to not have a competitive advantage over their opponents.
Another difference in these two medications is that Ritalin has a higher incidence of side effects than Modafinil tablets, with it much more likely to cause increased blood pressure, increased heart rate and lack of appetite.
Before taking this medication, it is important to ensure that you understand the correct Modafinil dosage that you should be taking, and how you should be taking it. This medication should be swallowed whole, with a glass of water. It can be taken with or without food, though taking it with food may delay the effects of the medication.
For daytime sleepiness, like conditions such as narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnoea, one Modafinil 200mg should be taken per day, in the morning shortly after waking up. For shift work sleep disorder, one tablet should be taken shortly before the start of the shift.
This medication usually takes around an hour to work after taking a dose. The Modafinil effects tend to last around 10 hours, with the amount of the medication in the blood reaching its peak concentration after 4 hours. The half-life of this medication is 15 hours, although this can be longer if you fall into any of the following groups:
If you miss a Modafinil dose, please ensure that you do not take two doses to account for it. Additionally, the maximum recommended daily dosage for this medication is 400mg, which should not be exceeded without a health professionals' approval.
Like any medication, there are always side effects, although luckily the Modafinil side effects are especially mild in comparison to similar medications such as Ritalin and Adderall. As long as you do not exceed the recommended dose or take Modafinil pills alongside any other substance which may affect the workings of it, the side effects should not be common. Please note that the following list is not a full list of side effects, but an example of some of the more common ones that have been reported. You should always conduct your full research into the side effects before taking any medication.
If you experience any of the above side effects, you should not worry unless they persist after the effects of the medication has worn off. There is an extremely slim chance, like when taking any medication, that you may be allergic to Modafinil. If this is the case, and you start to experience the symptoms of anaphylaxis, you should seek immediate medical attention.
No medication is often recommended to take over long periods of time, and some doctors may state that this should be taken for a maximum of 12 weeks. Although we are an online pharmacy, we are unable to recommend how long you personally should be taking this medication for and would recommend that you consult a healthcare professional for medical advice. Fortunately, this medication has extremely low addictive qualities, as it does not induce any kind of euphoria, so therefore there are no issues in relation to any kind of addiction problems.
As previously mentioned, this medication is processed through the liver. If you do suffer from liver problems, we would not recommend that you take this medication long-term, as it can put your liver under further strain. Likewise, if you are elderly, you should consult your doctor to see if it is appropriate for you to buy Modafinil.
Before you buy Modafinil, you should consider other alternative options to increase your chances of staying awake first. This is because taking this medication can only treat the symptoms of your condition but does not treat the underlying cause.

Some techniques could be:
If the quality of your sleep is increased, your daytime tiredness should be decreased.
