There is a lot of question that pops us in mind, whenever you’re thinking to order modafinil online. Such as what’s the difference between Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, Artiviletc and aren’t all modafinil the same?
In the mentioned products although modafinil is the active ingredient still there are some differences that needs to be considered while you buy modafinil online.
In this blog we’ll discuss the main difference between these popular modafinil and armodafinil products, what are the benefits of using them and where you can buy modafinil or the other for yourself.
Modafinil vs. Armodafinil
In both modafinil and armodafinil, Modafinil is the active ingredient. The main difference between them is the presence of a set of compounds known as “enantiomer”. These set of compounds have the same structure and formula but mirror images of each other, just like right and left hand. Chemists call modafinil a “racemic” mixture as it contains a mixture of both right-handed (R-modafinil) and left-handed (S-modafinil) versions. On the other hand, chemists refer Armodafinil as an “enantiopure compound” as it has only the right-handed (R-modafinil) enantiomers.
What is Provigil?
Amongst Modafinil and Armodafinil, Modafinil was discovered first. The first generation of this drug was known as adrafinil. Initially, it was a prodrug (Inactive constituent). It’s activated by the liver’s metabolic process into modafinil and the inactive version modafinilic acid. Researchers later discovered that the effects would be faster acting, stronger, and more reliable overall if they synthesized the active metabolite only. Due to this Modafinil come into existence and this product was known as Provigil® by the company CephalonInc, credited for its initial production.
It has a lot of Important Effects on the Brain:
Provigil® improves concentration by inhibiting dopamine reuptake, promotes wakefulness by increasing orexin concentrations, increases mental energy by inhibiting norepinephrine reuptake and also boost histamine levels in the brain to promote wakefulness.
Nowadays, there are some generic versions of modafinil available in the market, these generic medications are made by companies other than the patent holder and original creator of the drug.
Modalert and Modvigil– these are the two main generic options of modafinil. They are significantly less in price but contain the same dose as Provigil®.
Similarly, there are a number of generic options available for armodafinil as well. These generic versions also contain the same active ingredient of armodafinil but cost less. Waklert and Artvigil are some of the popular generic versions available in the market.
So Which Option is Better?
In reality, there is no single answer to this. There are some people who prefer modafinil (or its generic versions i.eModalert and Modvigil), while other people prefer a bit more intense armodafinil( or its generic versions i.eWaklert and Artivigil ). It all depends on individual preferences. However, Armodafinil is given in smaller doses compared to Modafinil. It is also observed that Armodafinil is a bit stronger and its effects are slightly longer than modafinil. However, these differences are very subtle.
