Modvigil vs Modalert
Both Modalert and Modvigil work damn well!
As previously discussed, if you take any form of generic Modafinil, you’ll find benefits like:
Wakefulness: You’ll be able to stay awake anywhere between 8-15+ hours when taking Modafinil. This depends on the Modafinil brand, the dosage, and time of day. You won’t be able to sleep during the half-life.
Increased Focus: During Modafinil’s half-life, you’ll find laser-sharp focus. You’ll be able to focus on mundane tasks and crush your work or studies.
Improved Overall Cognition: Many have found they “feel” smarter on Modafinil, myself included. You should notice significant cognitive benefits when taking the smart drug – unless you’re a non-responder or have an IQ over 140-150.
Great Productivity: You’ll find crushing work is easy on Modafinil. I typically increase my daily output by 50-100% when I take smart drugs.
Improved Memory Retention: You will retain more information when studying, reading, or applying information you learned – while “on” Modafinil.
Modafinil vs Armodafinil
The brand names of these drugs are Provigil® and Nuvigil® respectively.
The generic versions are Modalert and Modvigil (modafinil) and Waklert and Artvigil (armodafinil).
What exactly is the difference between these two types of modafinil? Is one better than the other? Which one should I buy?
The Differences Between Modafinil & Armodafinil Include
Both of these compounds have the same general effects on the body. Both of them are used for treating excessive daytime sleepiness by stimulating the waking portion of the sleep-wake cycle.
There are, however, some subtle differences between the two;
1. Duration of Effects
The duration of effects between these two drugs are very similar, and there are a lot of factors that can affect this, however, in general armodafinil is considered to have a longer duration of effect than modafinil.
Armodafinil averages around 18 hours in duration, while modafinil usually lasts closer to 16.
2. Onset Of Effects
Armodafinil reaches peak effects quicker. It takes about 2 hours to reach its peak before gradually declining.
Modafinil usually takes about 4 hours before it reaches peak effects, which can last another 2 or 3 hours before starting to diminish over the next several hours.
3. Side Effects
The side effects of modafinil and armodafinil are the same, however, certain side effects can be more or less common in one than the other.
Modafinil, for example, tends to cause side effects like headaches and nausea more often than armodafinil.
Armodafinil, on the other hand, more commonly causes insomnia, likely due to its longer duration of effect. Some people also find anxiety more common in armodafinil due to its slightly stronger effects.
