Ever wondered how it must feel to have undeterred focus and memory for longer periods of time? Well it’s time for us to stop wondering and actually realize the concept. With smart drugs one can achieve cognitive enhancement with excellent memory retention. Most of us have heard of Modafinil and how it helps the people in being awake and alert in during the day. With time however, the need for a better smart drug arose and it led to the research and development of the Modafinil compound as to how the medication can be enhanced with minimizing the side effects.
Eventually the medication experts found that, all along, residing within the Modafinil molecule was the answer to their problems. The R-enantiomer of the smart drug molecule or Armodafinil as it was later named was discovered. Thus came into the Nootropic horizon a new smart drug with its derivative smart drugs. These medications lasted for longer periods of time and had better effects. Let us see more about this drug in detail.
Armodafinil is the enhanced form of the well known smart drug compound Modafinil. It was given FDA Approval in 2007 along with its many derivative smart drugs. It should be noted that Waklert, an Armodafinil drug is considered as one of the smart drugs.
Considering the fact that Armodafinil and Modafinil are both originally the same compound, it is plausible to think that the medications are helping the user in the same working mechanism. Armodafinil is also a Eugeroic that helps in getting the person all woken up.
The medication stimulates the Orexin receptors and this eventually allows the activation of the Orexin Peptide. This helps in the waking up of the person. Also the reuptake of the Dopamine neurotransmitter is inhibited at the nerve synapses and this makes the neurotransmitter to be accumulated in the vicinity of the inhibition. This makes more and more Dopamine available for us by the body. Dopamine helps in elevating the mood, promoting wakefulness, improving cognition and making us more alert and many more. Dopamine is indeed called the ‘feel good’ enzyme. It is noteworthy that the hormones like Histamine, Norepinephrine and Serotonin are also increased.
Armodafinil is a strong smart drug. It should therefore be handled with proper care and precaution. Proper medical supervision and guidance can go a long way to making the pill a miracle pill. Patients with cardiac, renal or hepatic ailments should avoid the smart drug compound, Armodafinil and its derivative. Overdosing should be strictly avoided, as in many cases it can lead to many serious medical situations or even death.
Smart drugs or Nootropics are only a means to enhance the state of our brain and body for a limited period of time. Proper rest can ensure the proper functioning of the mind, body even without the use of the smart drug. Let us make it a point to note that the medication should be used in the appropriate doses, not overdosing or abusing a strong smart drug as such to get ‘high’ or feel ‘euphoric’. Proper care can go a long way to preventing many unwanted scenarios.
