Modafinil, the “tablets of intelligence” used by many students

The modafinil is a small tablet, which in recent times has had a huge spread. The smart drug, alias “Plavigil”, is actually a drug that has been discussed, because depending on how it is taken, it can have positive but also negative effects. In fact, this “smart drug” is prescription on prescription in some countries like the United Kingdom, India, Australia, Germany, Canada and Mexico, but in others, like the United States, the sale is prohibited. In Italy, however, the drug was officially approved only for the treatment of narcolepsy and related disorders.

What are the effects of modafinil?
The number of neurotransmitters increases incessantly, raising the levels of histamine in the hypothalamus, in simple terms, the central nervous system is continuously stimulated. Because of this particular feature, the researchers considered the drug as a “wake-up promoter” . Modafinil increases fatigue resistance and improves mood, in healthy adults it stimulates motivation while reaction times and vigilance achieve results above normal standards. A study published by the University of Cambridge has declared modafinil to be effective in reducing the so-called “impulse response”, ie less wrong decisions and more control. For now it is believed that there is no risk of dependence, but on the issue it is still debating. Like any drug, you can end up abusing it, with all the risks this entails. You can buy it from

What is Modafinil for?
The drug was invented in the 1970s by a French professor of experimental medicine. The “smart drug” is indicated, although not approved, in the treatment of ADHD and depression, moreover, it appears to be a promising cure for the abuse of stimulant drugs, such as cocaine withdrawal syndrome and for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. Modafinil also appears to normalize cognitive functions in people with sleep deprivation problems. In 1999 the American DEA inserted it among the controlled substances, since the researches of that time did not clarify its mechanisms of action. Therefore, the drug seemed to act indirectly on the brain’s neurotransmitters, specifically (serotonin, dopamine and GABA) as opposed to other directly acting stimulants. Thus the DEA, after many analyzes, classified it as a substance similar to cocaine. Substantial diversity, between modalert and any heavy drug like cocaine or MDMA, is the action that is performed on dopamine reuptake inhibitors. The latter is released from a neuron and is not entirely absorbed by the one that must receive it, so the amount that advances remains in the space between the two neurons. Called extracellular, it is the same that causes the same effect as cocaine. Modafinil is also a reuptake inhibitor, but not as effective as white powder. it is the same that causes the same effect as cocaine. Modafinil is also a reuptake inhibitor, but not as effective as white powder. it is the same that causes the same effect as cocaine. Modafinil is also a reuptake inhibitor, but not as effective as white powder.

Does modafinil cause addiction?
Hardly anyone talks about the possible risk, but the use of this smart drug is rapidly spreading among young students back with exams and pressured professionals. Every generation has had its reference drug. LSD during the 1960s , ecstasy during the 1980s , all in a background that becomes increasingly alternative and sick. But is the use of “smart tablets” to produce more and gain a competitive advantage, is it really as safe as they want us to believe?

The testimony of those who use Modafinil:
London, Yoles tells us how much the use of Modafinil has changed its approach to daily activities. “Modafinil must be treated with moderation, because like anything else, abuse risks leading you to an obvious addiction  – says the girl –when I take the drug it is like being pushed into a great vortex, you are overactive, all your senses are on the battle front to be able to make the most of your will. The drug allows you to slip into a deep state of concentration without much effort. Begin to act on your body and mind about two hours after taking it, it helps me to fight loss of attention, to manage the difficulties and stress caused by work, and now I have an incredible lucidity, fatigue is practically absent and I can do without cigarettes and coffee”.
