While the days of physical supremacy are over, in this technology and information driven age of today, Darwin’s law, ‘survival of the fittest’ still holds true. Today, the supremacy and power lie not in physical strength but in the power and sharpness of the mind. Only the intelligent and focused people can succeed in our competition driven society of ours. So, if you have the knowledge, you have the power. And to acquire knowledge, learn new things, you need to have a sharp and quick mind.
While intelligence is genetic and God given gift, you can still enhance and sharpen your mental ability with various methods. There are different ways to increase mind power and memory, such as crosswords, puzzles, memory exercises and special diet. Although, these do benefit to an extent, but these methods take long to achieve results. Now if you are wondering is there any special way with which you can give an instant kick to your mind. The answer is yes.
There is now a completely new field of medicines called nootropic drugs better known as smart drugs to specifically increase intelligence, improve memory and increase the overall energy of the mind and body. While nootropics such as hydergine, piracetam, aniracetam and centrophenoxine are designed to increase memory and enhance cognition, there is another category of drugs such as adrafinil, modafinil called Eugeroics meaning “good arousal”- designed to promote vigilance and alertness.
These drugs are also known as stimulants for their ability to increase alertness, sharpen focus, because adrafinil improves memory and enhance energy and cognition almost immediately after taking the medicine. That is why these drugs are better known as drugs that awaken the mind. Adrafinil, the first drug of this kind was actually designed and developed to condition called narcolepsy, which causes excessive day time sleepiness among individuals.
As adrafinil side effects were none as compared to other conventional stimulants like coffee and caffeine, doctors started prescribing this medicine to even night time workers, young working mother and other special cases to help these individuals cope with their hectic life styles with increased energy and intelligence. However, today adrafinil is taken by many students and young professionals to stimulate their mind to succeed in their studies and careers.
After much success of adrafinil, scientists launched a newer and more potent version of adrafinil called modafinil. While both drugs are developed by the same Lafon laboratories as wake-promoting agents that improve wakefulness and both provide stimulation only where stimulation is required, both are a little different from each other only in the sense that modalert 200 mg is more potent and effective than olmifon adrafinil.
While modafinil side effects such as habit formation, dependency, jitters etc. as compared to other stimulants are none, if compared to adrafinil, modafinil can cause certain other side effects like insomnia, nausea, headache etc. due to its high potency.
