Nuvigil, also known as Alertec, Armodafinil, Arvigil and a host of other brand names, is a newly refined form of Provigil (Modafinil) and is said to be slightly stronger and with less side effects.One of the most powerful Smart Drugs currently on the market, Nuvigil can help the user to have greater focus, mood and memory, as well as to have the energy to work for long periods at a time. Nuvigil was developed decades ago, and as such has a significant amount of research to back it up. Nuvigil’s sister drug, Provigil, has come to light in recent years as a cognitive enhancement drug because of how it can give the user significantly more energy and focus, as well as enhance mood and promote other cognitive benefits in the brain. We know Provigil is effective at this because not only has a study been released deeming Provigil the world’s “first real Smart Drug” but also because in the 90’s, it was an over the counter supplement, and turned prescription only after people realized it works extremely well and it became a big hit. Nuvigil is said to be 30% stronger than Provigil, and also to be a cleaner form of the drug. This article will look at the generic Nuvigil brands that are available, and will discuss how they can be used for cognitive enhancement.

How Nuvigil Works in the Brain
Nuvigil works the same way a lot of stimulant drugs do (though there are also some vast differences that make it much safer than drugs like Adderall or Ritalin.) It works on a group of stimulant (excitatory) neurotransmitters, by clocking their reuptake, and pushing them to important regions of the brain, such as the frontal lobe cortex. The neurotransmitters that Nuvigil works on, in orderof frequency and importance, are
Histamine-The primary neurotransmitter that promotes wakefulness, this is Nuvigil’s bread and butter and is how most of its wakefulness-promoting effects come about. Compared to something like dopamine, this is non-addictive yet at the same time incredibly potent. Adderall and Ritalin use dopamine as their primary neurotransmitter, and while effective in the short-term, it’s very dangerous and addictive long-term.
Dopamine-As discussed above, Nuvigil acts on this in a very small amount, less than that of even Coffee, meaning it has very low addictive potential.
Norepinephrine-This neurotransmitter is responsible for the physical stimulation you feel when taking Nuvigil.
