Modafinil (Modiodal®, Provigil®) is a unique, non-sleep-affecting stimulant, specially designed to treat narcolepsy, hypersomnia, and cataplexy.
It is considerably more potent than its cousin Adrafinil. Doses are one or two tablets (100mg each) as required. Avoid use in the evening.
“What will society make of a compound such as Modafinil that is more like caffeine than amphetamine in terms of safety, and yet as effective as the amphetamines?”
