There is a lot of massive mis-information about generic modafinil suppliers and the different brand names that are available. Read the truth here from experts who’ve been into modafinil for years.
In case you don’t know, the original owner of modafinil is a company called Cephalon. Cephalon created many brand names for modafinil that it marketed in different countries around the world. These include but are not limited to Provigil, Alertec, Vigil, Modavigil, Modalert, Modapro, Modvigil, Modiodal, Stavigile… the list goes on.
These are all simply brand names. Most of them are created specifically for the language the country speaks and to suggest positive benefits. For example Pro in English means positive or good. Vigil means awakening and is also similar to vigilance which means attentiveness. So this word suggests to us its very good and positive awakening and attentiveness.
Pharmaceutical Marketing Costs You A Lot! Be Careful!
This is simply a marketing method used by Cephalon. The reason they do this is to establish brand recognition so that after their patent expires (it expired in 2012) consumers will prefer a particular brand simply because it feels familiar and comfortable with them. They then hope you will continue to pay the $6 per pill for Provigil when you can simply get the generic modafinil for $1 a pill.
This has been going on since the beginning of the pharmaceuticals.
For example, if you needed something to help you to have sex would you go and ask for sildenafil? Probably not. You’d ask for Viagra which is the brand name.
Or if you have a headache do you ask for acetaminophen or paracetamol? Probably not. But you’ll go to the shops for some Tylenol or Panadol!
Is There A Difference Between Generic Modafinil And Brand Names?
The difference between modafinil and Modavigil is nothing! The difference between modafinil and Provigil is nothing! The difference between modafinil and Modalert is nothing! Remember brand names such as Provigil, Modavigil and Modalert are simply different names on the box of modafinil. The active ingredient drug is modafinil.
What Strength Is Modafinil And What Size Pills Does It Come In?
Modafinil comes in sizes of 100mg and 200mg pills. You can get 100’s and 200’s from practically any supplier. The reason they come in this size is because the tested and standard dose for a patient with narcolepsy is 200 mg in the morning and 100 mg at lunch time.
Provigil brand name pills come in 100mg and 200mg tablet sizes. Modalert pills come in 100mg and 200mg sizes. All of the brands plus generic modafinil comes in the same strength pills. You can buy all of these from the suppliers listed on the page.
Different conditions have different doses. For example someone with shift work sleep disorder will take 200mg an hour before they start their shift at night.
For healthy people taking modafinil for general wakefulness promoting to battle fatigue and lethargy, 200mg in the morning is plenty to get you through the day right up to 10pm, 11pm or midnight.
A 200mg pill of modafinil is quite strong if you are not used to it. It’s similar to having a double espresso every 3 hours all day (so 6 times). If you had this much coffee you would probably be very jittery and uncomfortable. But modafinil provides this level of awakeness without any negative side effects.
Do Online Suppliers Send Fake Modafinil?
Really, there aren’t that many cases of fake modafinil anymore. In the beginning when Provigil was under copyright and it was starting to gain popularity there were the usual online scammers trying to hock their wares. Now that modafinil is legally generic there are so many quality suppliers that ship worldwide you would be stupid to buy from an unknown source that could possibly be fake.
