Read our Modafinil (Provigil) Review

Modafinil, commonly sold as Provigil, is considered one of the first groundbreaking eugeroic drugs to hit the market. It has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of various wakefulness disorders such as narcolepsy- a condition resulting in excessive daytime sleepiness, obstructive sleep apnea and shift work disorder. For those people without wakefulness disorders, this drug is often used on an off-label basis for cognitive enhancement by means of altering the CNS levels of histamine. Also, research has shown that it boosts working memory, but the long-term effects are relatively unknown.



Adderall is a phenethylamine and prescription drug that is primarily used to treat ADHD and wakefulness disorders such as narcolepsy. It works extremely well for improving cognition and can even improve mood by targeting the neurotransmitters like Dopamine, Adrenaline, and Norepinephrine. When taken at the correct dosage, it can increase productivity, cognitive organization, and cognitive resources.
