Modafinil was an analeptic drug manufactured by the pharmaceutical corporation Cephalon. It was approved by the FDA for treatment of narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder, and excessive daytime sleepiness.
I say was, because while these reasons may have been the sole purpose of the development and manufacturing of Modafinil originally, it has evolved into somewhat of a “smart-drug”.
“Smart-drugs” has become somewhat of a buzz word thats been thrown around a lot lately, another term for nootropics. Smart-drugs simply refer to drugs that have memory, cognitive, and intelligence enhancing properties and capabilities.
Modafinil has become a popular smart-drug for having these properties.
Benefits of Modafinil include:
- Reduced Sleepiness
- Improved Cognition
- Improved Memory
- Increased Concentration
- Increased Wakefulness / Alertness
- Increased Motivation
- Increased Attention
In many cases, Modafinil has even been reported having anti-depressant effects, positive effects on those with ADHD, and creating an overall sense of well-being.
Modafinil, unlike other popular “smart-drugs” (such as Adderall and Ritalin), is non-addictive.
So now you’re probably thinking, wow, those are some pretty big claims. Well, their not claims, they’re actually facts proven through extensive clinical research, testing, and trials.
Dont believe me? Would you believe me if I told you that the U.S. Military has been employing the use of Modafinil on it’s troops?
For years now they’ve been doing so, over the traditional use of amphetamines. The troops take Modafinil in combat situations and when facing sleep deprivation.
Not only that, Modafinil has been approved for the use of the U.S. Air Force on certain missions. In testing, pilots would take their Modafinil, and be able to perform just as accurately and precise, even while facing long periods of sleep deprivation.
Go ahead, do the research yourself. It’s all there on Wikipedia.
So why isn’t this drug everywhere? Why isn’t everyone taking it?
Well, it’s simple.
Modafinil is a prescription drug. While it may have all these amazing off-label uses, while being incredibly safe to use with no addiction and abuse potential, it doesn’t matter. You still cannot be prescribed a drug for off-label use, even if its perfectly safe.
You can’t just walk into your doctors office and tell them why you want Modafinil, they cannot, and will not prescribe it to you.
Not only that, if you were prescribed Modafinil, in the U.S., Canada, and UK, Modafinil manufacturing and sales are still controlled by Cephalon, even with their patent on the drug expired, making it extremely expensive. Something around $8 a pill. Even with insurance, this is very expensive, which is why many people prescribed Modafinil order it from overseas for a much more reasonable price.
I’m Working To Solve This Problem
I’ve seen prices range from around $2 a pill to as low as $.99 a pill on the web from reputable online pharmacies. No prescription required. Like anything, it all depends on how much you buy and discounts of course.
However, these pharmacies can be hard to find.
That’s why I created this site, to help people find the best possible prices for Modafinil from reputable online pharmacies. The only pharmacies I recommend are safe, reliable, discreet, and fair.
Personally, I’m not a fan of Cephalon, they developed a great drug, but their extremely greedy and what they charge for their brand of Modafinil, Provigil, is outrageous.
I don’t understand how the average person can afford it, even with insurance. It’s ridiculous. Even with Cephalon’s patent on Modafinil expired, they continue to pay off other manufacturers and suppliers to keep them from producing their own much cheaper generic versions…
Provigil is so expensive, many people who have real medical conditions, and actually use Modafinil for label use, can’t afford it.
