Modafinil Helps to Cure Sleep Disorders
“At first, when I got a shift-work sleep disorder diagnosis, I had a prescription from my doctor and bought Modafinil at the drug store. A while later my son agreed to order Generic Modafinil online for me. This time I took it to make my general condition better: to reduce fatigue and to improve the mood. It worked great in all those cases”, says Thor. He confesses that almost forty years ago he used amphetamines to stay awake. “However, amphetamines are a nightmare compared to Modafinil. I feel much better with this drug. I give it 10 out of 10.”
Generic Modafinil was developed by a French professor Michael Jouvet in the 1970s. After its first release, it was used only for treating a pathological daytime sleepiness, mostly related to narcolepsy. Later, in 1998, U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved it as a drug for treating various types of disorders. Modafinil is still used to treat undue sleep during a day, which is induced by such disorders as narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome and shift work sleep disorder.
The mechanism of the drug
It is not known how the medicament exactly works yet. The researchers cannot fully understand how it affects the brain and cognitive processes of a human being. They conducted some studies over animals and investigated that Modafinil increases transmission of the glutamine chemical (responsible for keeping people awake and mentally vigorous) in the two brain centres: the hippocampus and the thalamus. It does not affect the central nervous system as caffeine or other amphetamines do because it is based on medicines.
Positive influence the drug has on a person
As it has become extremely popular that anyone can buy Generic Modafinil online, it is high on the agenda nowadays. Scientists say that you do not require rest if you take this drug. Moreover, you can function at the highest level even if you did not sleep at night. Patients undergoing shift-work sleep disorder and narcolepsy are often prescribed with it, as it greatly reduces feelings of fatigue, improves mood, concentration and reduces cases of falling asleep at any time.
One of the apnoea patients tells about effects of Generic Modafinil: “I used to get up early in the morning feeling I have had no sleep. I could fall asleep while having a breakfast, and I was nervous when I had to drive a car, as I did not know when a sudden sleep would catch me. This medication does wonders. I still can suddenly get sleepy but now I am able to fight it off. I drive a car and can sit motionlessly without a desire to sleep.”
Possible negative influence of the medicament
The drug’s way of action does not cause such adverse effects as other amphetamines or stimulants do. Nonetheless, before using this drug, you should ask a doctor for advice. You must not use this drug if you are allergic to any of ingredients that this medicine contains. Moreover, if you have heart or kidney diseases, allergy, mitral valve prolapsed or hypertrophy, you must visit a doctor before you start the treatment. Otherwise, some people can undergo several by-effects while taking Generic Modafinil. They may range from light to severe: giddiness, irregular heartbeat, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, diarrhoea, indigestion, problems with sleep, problems with breathing, hoarseness, allergic reaction and others.
The drug should be prescribed by a doctor for the patient personally. The dose for children and teenagers under 17 years must be determined only by a doctor. Patients who suffer from narcolepsy, apnoea syndrome or shift work sleep disorder are often suggested taking only 200mg once a day in the morning or before they begin working. Thus the patient will not feel the weakness and tiredness during the day. The process of excreting the pill is very slow. So the effect may last up to 15 hours.
