Modafinil has different laws and regulations depending on what part of the world you’re in. In certain countries it’s very hard to get it past customs, and in other countries it’s scheduled but legal to import for personal use. This article will serve as a how-to with regards to all the laws and regulations surrouding Modafinil. While we obviously can’t write about each and every 200+ countries, this article will discuss the main ones and their federal regulations surrounding Modafinil/Provigil, Armodafinil, as well as other nootropics.
What is Modafinil?
Modafinil, in-short, is a wakefulness promoting drug used to aid patients dealing with narcolepsy, a sleep disorder where the individual falls asleep at the most inopportune of moments, such as while walking to work or driving a car. Without something like Modafinil or Armodafinil to help with the disorder, living life to the standards of day to day norms becomes almost impossible. Because something like Modafinil however jacks up specific neurotransmitters that aid in wakefulness-it acts as a stimulant that makes it difficult, if not impossible to fall asleep, meaning that the has less worry that they’ll fall asleep during daytime hours.
In users who don’t have Narcolepsy, or something like obstructive sleep apnea, Modafinil can act as a significant cognitive enhancer. Research on Modafinil recently came out that says that Modafinil is the worlds first “Smart Drug” that actually works, with regards to how it can affect working memory, mood, focus and energy levels. Qualities users may find very useful when looking for cognitive enhancement. You can read more information on this study here. One study was even quoted as saying “Modafinil is the first Smart Drug that is deemed safe.”
Modafinil, in light of these recent studies, is becoming as much a drug for performance enhancement and cognitive growth as it is a Narcolepsy sleep aid.
