Modvigil is a brand name of Modafinil, a powerful nootropic supplement and stimulant used to treat narcolepsy and other sleep disorders.

In recent years, everyone from students to doctors has been taking Modafinil to improve their quality of life.

Manufactured by HAB Pharmaceuticals in India, Modvigil is a generic form of Provigil, the latter which you need a prescription to buy in the USA and most countries.

What is Modvigil?

Modvigil is a generic form of a compound called Modafinil. Modvigil, along with related products in the ‘Afinil family, can induce wakefulness. It also used as a cognitive enhancer, sharpening a user’s focus and combating fatigue.

Modvigil differs from other kinds of stimulants in the respect that there is little evidence that prescribed dosages are tolerance-forming.

There are also fewer reported side-effects when compared to other stimulants options. It may differ from other generic Modafinil supplements like Modalert in price and potency. Most sources note that, while Modvigil is less expensive than Modalert, its efficacy is also slightly reduced.

Currently, the drug is classified in the United States as a Schedule IV Controlled Substance. According to the DEA, Schedule IV Drugs have a low potential for abuse along with an approved medical use.

You need a doctor’s prescription, which can be refilled up to five times in six months.

Regulations regarding Modvigil/Modafinil are somewhat more strict in the United States than in other countries, where there are fewer concerns about the addiction potential.

In comparison to other stimulants and cognitive boosters, Modvigil doesn’t give you the same “peppy” form of awareness. Instead, its effects are commonly described as being more subtle.

It reduces constant attention breaks when performing tasks, allowing users to stay on target longer and continuing to work without interruption.

Overall, focus on single tasks is improved, causing you to “get in the zone,” so to speak. Depending on what you’re doing, this can be a huge benefit or an extreme detriment.

Other Names for Modvigil

Modafinil is sold under several other names, including Modalert, Alertec, and Provigil.
