Modafin is a safe “energetic” that allows you to stay awake and workable for more than 24 hours. The drug is actively used by American pilots during combat missions. Studies show that the reaction rate is increased by 30%. Coordination accuracy is not reduced even after 48 hours of wakefulness.
Modafinil acts on the principle of releasing a large amount of the neurotransmitter dopamine in chemical synapses of the brain and nervous system, which leads to increased passage of the nerve signal and an increase in the speed of the brain. This drug may find its use in the future to increase IQ, but at the moment such studies have not yet been conducted.
According to numerous studies, Modafin is not addictive and much safer than caffeine. An overdose of the drug causes only nervousness and passes within a few days. Modafinil can cause an allergic reaction, and in rare cases causes a headache. It is also not recommended to use the drug for pregnant women and people under 16 years old.
Reviews of Modafin say that the product is really indispensable for hard training and critical life situations, when clarity of mind and efficiency from the body are needed at 100%. Modafinil has been added to the list of prohibited products for athletes by the World Doping Agency.
