Modafinil Keeps Your Awake For Better Productivity at Workplace

by Lewis Paul Head

Modafinil is a wakefulness-promoting agent that enhances cognitive thought and function, boosts memory and raises concentration levels. It helps people to overcome fatigue and conquer intellectual challenges.

Modafinil is highly effective in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, hypersomnia, shift work sleep disorder, AHAD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), depersonalization disorder, post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment, adjuvant treatment of depression and traumatic brain injury. Studies have shown that it can improve brain processing speed, enhance mental process involving pattern recognition and digit manipulation and enable people to take better decisions. This drug is also utilized for reducing the fatigue associated with certain medical conditions such as Parkinson disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and multiple sclerosis. 

Use of Modafinil in the treatment of narcolepsy and shift work sleep disorder

Modafinil was developed under the brand name of Provigil and is considered as a controlled substance. It acts on different neurotransmitters and their receptors, for example, Dopamine, Serotonin, Orexin( Hypocretin), Norepinephrine and gamma-aminobutyric acid( GABA).

Patients with narcolepsy suffered from excessive daytime sleepiness and slept instantly and randomly throughout the day. Modafinil has come as a boon for such patients. It decreases the daytime sleepiness in people without hindering nocturnal slumber. People using this drug remain alert for several hours without any side effects.

Modafinil can be of great help to patients suffering from shift work sleep disorder (a condition which causes sleepiness in individuals with disrupted sleep routine). The circadian rhythm of the person usually gets disrupted due to late working hours and long shifts. It improves mental alertness and enables people to give their optimum performance in the workplace. People working in hospitals, call centres and media houses have benefited the most from its use.

Modafinil Tablets is highly popular drug among school and college going students as a study aid. The demand for this drug remains at an unbelievable level due to the hype surrounding its results. This has resulted in the introduction of a large number of generic variants in the market. Modafinil tablets are utilized by the armed forces for long and difficult missions where getting complete sleep is a difficult task. These soldiers usually have to remain awake and alert for long hours in combat operations and fight the enemy. A study was conducted and it was found that soldiers who took Modafinil stayed awake for 30 hours, slept for 8 and then stayed awake again. They performed better than well rested and drug-free volunteers. Always take this medication under the supervision of a healthcare professional in order to get desired results.
