Smart drugs have been on the horizon for some time now. In 1998, Modafinil smart drug was approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat various sleeping disorders like Narcolepsy, sleep apnea, etc. In fact Modafinil was originally developed to treat Narcolepsy in France in 1986. Later the medication was also used to increase your cognition and also increase and maintain our focus and attention.
Armodafinil was developed as a measure for the people’s need to get an enhanced smart drug that could benefit them even more with more potency and lesser number of side effects.
With extensive R&D, the medication was developed and the FDA approved the med in 2007. With more research the various brand versions of the medication/ compound were developed. One such brand version is Artvigil.
Artvigil is one of the best known medications for cognitive enhancement and for wakefulness purposes.
The Armodafinil compound in the Artvigil smart drug first stimulates the Orexin receptors (OX1 and OX2). These Orexin receptors are also called Hypocretin receptors. This stimulation activates the Orexin peptide in the body. This Orexin peptide is responsible for the arousal, wakefulness and appetite of the individual. This activation is partly responsible for the wakefulness in the person. After this the smart drug compound impacts the neurotransmitter Dopamine in the body. Dopamine, or as it is nicknamed, the ‘feel-good’ hormone is an important neurotransmitter in the body that is responsible for wakefulness, cognition development of the individual. The reuptake of the neurotransmitter is inhibited by the Nootropic compound, which creates a pool of Dopamine in the vicinity of the former reuptake region. This pooled up Dopamine is later used by the body for its daily activities. Other hormones that are directly and indirectly responsible for the wakefulness and the cognitive enhancement of the user are also increased.
The various uses of Artvigil are:
In cases where one experiences allergic reactions or side effects, the medication should be stopped immediately and proper medical assistance should be administered as soon as possible to avoid any unwanted consequences.
Proper care and precautions can allow the user to reap the full benefits of the medication. Artvigil is however a very popular smart drug that can be available in the market today.
