Smart drugs have been helpful for us since their advent. Modafinil was the first oral smart drug developed with FDA granting approval for it in 1998. This benefited the people greatly, but in time these medications needed to be evolved or enhanced.
As a result, Armodafinil was developed. Armodafinil is the R-enantiomer of Modafinil compound, and has many derivative smart dugs. Artvigil is one of them.
Let us look at the smart drug, Artvigil in detail.
Artvigil is the brand name for the generic Armodafinil. Armodafinil in itself is an improvement or an upgraded version of the generic Modafinil. This smart drug promotes wakefulness, increased focus and enhanced cognitive skills. Along with these brain function enhancing qualities, Artvigil also helps in treating Narcolepsy, sleep apnea and other sleep related ailments. Artvigil (Armodafinil) is a drug that is FDA approved and is has been instrumental in helping people stay active and alert all day without the worry of severe side effects.
The smart drug compound (Armodafinil) Armodafinil has it main mechanism with this neuropeptide called Orexin that is responsible for the wakefulness, arousal, and appetite.
Armodafinil activates these neurons and this stimulates the release of other hormones like Dopamine and Norepinephrine. When you take Armodafinil, it appears that it blocks the Dopamine ‘transporters’ in the brain. These are molecules that act in order to remove Dopamine from the synapses. Thus you increase the amount of Dopamine available for action. Dopamine also likely increases as a result of increased wakefulness and activity in the brain – just as caffeine triggers a secondary increase in Dopamine.
Use of the drug will keep you awake and eliminate any previous signs of irregular sleep patterns. Its motivating effect is said to be natural; a feeling of heightened awareness and stimulation. It is normally referred to as clear-headed energy. Having been approved by the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Artvigil is used in treating narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea. It is also used to treat shift work sleep disorder.
