A daytime sleepiness may signal a reduced activity of the brain and worsening of the cognitive functions. Due to the daytime sleepiness, a human experiences poor attentiveness, bad memory, and low concentration. If this state lasts for a long time, the brain needs an additional support. Modafinil is a modern medicine which will help your brain to return a working mode.
Modafinil is one of the most effective analeptics which provides a strong stimulating action to the cognitive functions of the brain. This is not classical stimulant because its mechanism of the action differs from the action of amphetamines.
An exact mechanism of the pharmacological action of Modafinil is not completely studies, but there is information that a stimulating effect happens by means of the increased release of monoamines, noradrenaline and dopamine into the structures of the brain.
There is a low chance of the development of a medical addiction during the use of Modafinil. This is obviously caused by a special chemical structure of the active ingredients which act for a short period and are quickly excreted from the body.
The main therapeutic characteristics of Modafinil are the memory improvement, increase of the concentration, the cognitive function improvement, and the reduction of the daytime sleepiness.
Modafinil is released in pills or round or oval shape and white color. This medicine may be released under different trade marks, and therefore the pills may have different abbreviations and manufacturers.
