Why is modafinil so popular

Smart drugs or Nootropics are gaining popularity worldwide. And this is especially among the younger generation as they feel the need to improve their knowledge, concentrate and focus more and all within as short a time as possible. There are several different kinds of Nootropic peptides. One such drug is Modafinil. It has been labeled as a genuine smart drug. One of the major benefits of Modafinil is that it is not like other traditional stimulants and it has almost no side effects.
As per the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than 130,000 college students have been found to abuse prescription stimulants. But compared to those Modalert is considered much safer.
Dosage of Modafinil
Modalert or Modafinil is to be taken 200mg every day. It has also been seen that higher doses of up to 400 mg per day have been given and well tolerated. But still there is no corresponding evidence that higher doses would give you any additional benefit beyond what the lower dose would give. Modafinil is completely non-addictive. Also the elimination half life seems to be around 12 to 15 hours.
Modafinil can be taken orally. It can be taken before or after food, but needs to be taken once every day in the morning or in the afternoon. If at all you are taking the drug for work sleep disorder, then you can take it an hour before your work hours. One can easily buy Modafinil these days from several sources.
Side effects
So far, no known side effects of Modafinil have been seen. At least nothing that one needs to be concerned about. However, it is still very important that the following people consult the doctor before starting Modafinil –
• If you are hypersensitive to this drug or to its constituents like wheat gluten.
• If you have had any earlier cardiovascular problems; or any problems that arose when you used other stimulants.
• If you have any cardiac conditions.
