Modalert is a nootropic drug and a generic alternative to Modafinil produced by Sun Pharmaceuticals and available as 100 mg, 200 mg pills.
It’s possible to buy this medicine in many online pharmacies based in India and the US, but you can do that only if you have a prescription. This alternative is often used because of its long half-life (up to fifteen hours based on some reports and clinical trials).
Reasons of Its Popularity
Nowadays, there are many alternatives to Modalert that you can find in the market, including Provake, Modafil, Modatec and Provigil. What makes it so popular? The main reason is that this medication is much cheaper compared to Provigil.
Basically, this medication belongs to nootropics that are also called smart drugs and cognitive enhancers because they help patients boost their wakefulness, alertness and vigilance, especially if they have different sleeping disorders, such as narcolepsy.
The intake of Modalert also boosts learning abilities, memory, mental performance, attention, concentration and other important cognitive processes. Some doctors even prescribe it to treat ADHD, and this medicine contains 12 natural and safe nootropic components.
The main reason why Modalert is becoming more and more popular is that it has a reduced risk of leading to adverse effects, withdrawal and addiction compared to other alternatives, such as Adderall and Ritalin. It’s interesting that this medication was designed as the derivative of Adrafinil, but now it’s more used than this parent drug.

How This Medication Works
Keep in mind that Modalert has different mechanisms of action, and most of them are still not understood. For example, it can enter the central nervous system and cross over your blood-brain barrier.
This is what allows it to act on dopamine transporters and inhibit its reuptake. This effect results in increased levels of dopamine, thus, boosting your mental focus, motivation, mood, stamina and so on.
Modalert can affect histamine levels in your brain too and promote your wakefulness while eliminating fatigue. Another interesting effect is on serotonin and other hormones in your brain, but don’t forget that this medicine has increased neuroprotective and anti-oxidant effects that boost your overall health.
The most common dosage of this medication is 100 mg – 400 mg a day. This means that your single dose that you must take in the morning will be enough to last throughout the day.
If you prefer to split a daily amount into smaller parts, make sure that you avoid taking Modalert in the evening to avoid sleeping difficulty.
Modalert Side Effects
Some of the most common adverse effects include congestion, mild headaches, stomach ulcers, nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea, dizziness, nervousness and others, but the good news is that they are rare and most of them are not serious.
