Armodafinil vs Modafinil

Modafinil and Armodafinil are both pharmaceuticals helps to normalize sleep patterns and then acts as a wakefulness agent, allowing you to go about your daily life without constant fatigue.

  • Chemistry. modafinil contains 50% r-modafinil (armodafinil) and 50% s-modafinil. Therefore, modafinil already contains 50% armodafinil – so you’ve already tried armodafinil if you’ve taken modafinil before.
  • Duration. Armodafinil lasts a few hours longer than modafinil. This is problematic for some users prone to insomnia.
  • Effects. Armodafinil and Modafinil have essentially identical effects in the brain
  • Potency. Armodafinil is a more expensive, purified and potent form of modafinil that requires a slightly lower dose (150mg vs 200mg)
  • Efficacy. There is no evidence that armodafinil is more effective than modafinil at their indicated doses. If you’re rolling in cash, you may want to shell out to get armodafinil instead of modafinil, but otherwise, it’s not worth it.
  • Date of FDA approval. Modafinil was discovered and used clinically prior to the introduction of armodafinil. Modafinil was approved by the FDA in 1998, whereas armodafinil was approved in June, 2007


So that’s the official stance on the difference between the two.

What I found was I am used to the Modafinil, I cycle between a 1 week on 1 week off or 2 days on 5 days off, I have built up a slight tolerance to modafinil. Armodafinil on the other hand I had never tried. The first day on Armodafinil was like the scene from limitless everything just clicked into place, I was hyper focused, I completed a weeks’ worth of work in one day, I built a new website in 2 hours. The last time I felt like that was my first time on Modafinil!!!

Armodafinil Vs Modafinil is there any real difference? The answer is NO!!!

If you have been on modafinil a while and you feel it’s not working as well as it could swap out and go on Armodafinil for a while. I believe this will be the best of both worlds. Constantly swap between the two as not to build up a tolerance or a dependency.
