What is Armodafinil?
Do you suffer from extreme sleepiness? Do you have a sleep disorder such as narcolepsy or sleep apnea? Then armodafinil might be perfect for you as it can reduce the effects of extreme sleepiness on your body.
While this medication doesn’t cure a sleep disorder, it can help you function better day in and day out. Armodafinil works by releasing a chemical that effects the sleep/wake cycle in your brain.
Benefits of Armodafinil
Scientists believe that armodafinil increases histamine levels, causing people to feel more awake. It also impacts your dopamine levels making you feel happier.
Improves Mental Performance.
Considered by many as a ‘smart drug’, armodafinil improves an individual’s attention and mental performance. It has been used by both students, military personal, and working adults to go longer hours without feeling the effects of sleep deprivation. Some take armodafinil in the morning before work to especially high stress careers (ex: doctors, business executives) to help their brain be at peak performance during work hours.
Compared to many other drugs on the market, armodafinil doesn’t cause severe crashes or withdrawals. You won’t have to worry while taking this drug.
