Modvigil is a brand of generic Modafinil manufactured by Hab Pharma in India. Modafinil is an oral drug that is used to improve wakefulness in patients with excessive sleepiness.
Modvigil is a blessing to those who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome, or with narcoleptic patients, and also those who suffer from shift work disorder. Some people use this “smart drug” to improve their alertness, mental energy, and even cognitive performance.
You can buy Modvigil for a much cheaper price than the original Provigil which is a brand name version of Modafinil manufactured by Cephalon.
Student and individuals with ADHD/ADD sometimes also use Modvigil to enhance their study habits. Users report extreme focus and concentration while using this drug.
It is also noted for having a mood-brightening effect and may have a positive effect on individuals suffering from anxiety or depression.
Modvigil is structurally different from other types of central nervous system stimulants. It also does not have the number of withdrawal symptoms that come with some of the other stimulants. Side effects are also much less severe and typically described as fairly mild.
Modvigil by HAB Pharma is a direct competitor of Modalert from Sun Pharma.
Modvigil most often comes in a 200 mg tablet that is to be taken orally. It is most often taken once a day with or without food. Some people find that they only need 100 mg of Modafinil in order to see full benefits. In this case, you can split a single tablet into two pieces to achieve a smaller dose.
Those who are using this medicine to treat narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea should take one pill in the morning and the effects will last all day long due to the long half-life.
Those who are using it to combat with shift work disorder should take it one hour before the shift. (If your work shifts do not begin the same time each day, you should talk to your doctor about next steps.)
Modvigil is generally well tolerated when taken at prescribed dosages. There have been some common side effects reported in clinical trials and user reviews, including headache, nausea, back pain, anxiety, nervousness, heartburn, indigestion, vomiting, diarrhea, dry skin/mouth, and insomnia.
Sometimes side effects are caused by too high of a dosage for personal sensitivities, and trying a lower dosage for a while may help. You may be able to slow increase your dosage back to a normal level if side effects do not return.
Insomnia is most commonly caused by taking Modvigil too late in the day. As mentioned previously, Modafinil has a long half-life (between 12-15 hours), and its stimulating effects last a long time. It is recommended to take Modafinil in the morning before noon, to avoid sleep disturbances that could occur if it is taken later in the day.
