What Is Vilafinil?
Vilafinil is a less popular, yet no less potent generic brand of Modafinil, a Schedule IV controlled substance. The DEA regards schedule IV drugs as low risk and low priority. Since its potential for abuse is extremely low, ordering Vilafinil or any other brand online is tolerated. Its impact on cognitive well-being, productivity, and eagerness to study makes it a desirable asset for any countries’ intellectual capital. Governments around the world are aware of the importance of a productive workforce.
As the popularity of smart drugs was rising, pharmaceutical companies were getting more and more invested in manufacturing their own version. So, in 2010, when the patent for modafinil expired, pharmaceutical companies came up with their own “better” versions of the generic drug. An Indian company named Centurion Laboratories came up with their product, Vilafinil. Despite this version having the same chemical structure as modafinil, it still has a different ratio of enantiomers and fillers in it. Hence, the overall effects are different as compared to modafinil too!
Some other vital differences that distinguish Vilafinil from other similar smart drugs are,
- Effect profile
Vilafinil 200mg is especially popular in the UK for those suffering from narcolepsy or any other kind of sleep disorder. Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that causes one to suddenly fall asleep, even during an activity (running, biking or driving a car, for example).
According to experts, Vilafinil is not only used to treat narcolepsy and other sleep disorders. In several scientific studies, it’s been found that Vilafinil 200mg (as well as other brands of Modafinil) also have significant off-label uses. Vilafinil is also effective in mitigating the effects of depression and ADHD, as well as intensifying study or work activities. (Source)
Recommended Optimal Dosage for Responsible Use of Vilafinil:
Maximum 1 tablet with or without food, first thing in the morning.
If you want to use Vilafinil to prevent being sleepy at work, then take it one hour before you begin working.
Price Of Vilafinil
The first major point of distinction for any product is its price. So, as far as Vilafinil is concerned, you can get around 60 tablets for 90 USD online. If you do the math, that is about $1.50 per tablet. You can save even more money if you buy in bulk! For instance, if you order 500 tablets, you would get them for around $350, which makes the cost of one tablet just $0.70! That is a bit under half the original price of a tablet!
When you compare this price with Modalert, which is another smart drug, there is just a minor difference of $6 for an order of 50 pills. If you go on to buy a much larger bulk, say 500 tablets, Modalert and Vilafinil will cost you just about the same.
As far as Provigil, the first patented and approved smart drug, is concerned, you are saving tons more with Vilafinil. Fifty tablets of Provigil will set you back by a hefty $2350 to $2500! Although you can not buy Provigil in bulk because of schedule IV status of medication, you can imagine how costly it would have been!
Effects of Vilafinil
Although the effects of Vilafinil are highly subjective, according to the consumer, there have been reports of it being slightly less effective as compared to Provigil, Modalert, and Modvigil. However, some report similar effects!
In our opinion, Vilafinil is slightly less effective when compared with Provigil and Modvigil. Still, you can expect that familiar feeling of laser-focus, positivity and productivity.
Side Effects of Vilafinil
Vilafinil (generic modafinil, Provigil) has relatively few side effects when compared to other stimulants. Lower doses come with negligible side effects. If a higher dose is taken, the side effects become more noticeable. Some of the common side effects of Vilafinil may include; headaches, diarrhea, stomach issues, back pain, drowsiness, nausea, nervousness, trouble sleeping, and dizziness.
You should avoid caffeine or any kind of stimulant when taking Vilafinil. Also, don’t take it late in the day. You’ll have trouble sleeping at night. Taking it 14 hours prior to sleep, exercising, and using relaxing supplements are just a few ways you can counteract this side effect.
