Adrafinil is a synthetic nootropic that is chemically very closely related to Modafinil. In fact, Adrafinil increases the levels of it in the body. Adrafinil is often used to treat sleep and attention disorders. Therefore, it is best known for its ability to promote alertness and wakefulness. That is why Adrafinil is classified as a eugeroic agent.
Adrafinil is the central nervous system stimulant that specifically targets the chemical processes within the brain thereby improving mental focus. Interestingly, it does so without affecting heart rate or blood pressure. This prevents side effects that are often associated with more common central nervous system stimulants (e.g. caffeine). Some users also report cognitive benefits, such as improved memory and learning capacity, following the use of Adrafinil.
Overall, Adrafinil is an effective agent to boost mental energy and increase alertness. This makes it a perfect compound to increase your productivity only when absolutely necessary as prolonged use of Adrafinil is not recommended (see below).
Exact mechanisms of action are not yet fully understood. However, it is believed that Adrafinil activates noradrenergic and dopaminergic systems. It other words, Adrafinil affects the release of GABA neurotransmitter in areas of the brain responsible for the sleep and wake cycle. Adrafinil may also prevent the breakdown of dopamine neurotransmitter, thereby positively regulating the mood and reducing stress. It has a long half-life.
The recommended daily dosage is between 150-300 mg. New users should start with the lowest dose and get used to it first before taking higher doses. Due to its anti-sleep effects, Adrafinil should not be taken in the afternoon and evening. Adrafinil should not be taken more than three times a week, for longer than five months. Therefore, Adrafinil should be used on a non-continuous basis. It takes around an hour for Adrafinil to reach its peak concentration in the blood. Also, biological half-time of Adrafinil is around 5 hours.
There are little to no side effects associated with Adrafinil. Very few individuals may experience mild headaches or nausea.
