Another mechanism of action which has garnered research involves a brain peptide known as orexin.

Is Modafinil legal in the UK and what are the requirements for buying it?
The United Kingdom regulates medications and assigns them to Schedules based on their potential for serious side effects and their potential for addiction. Modafinil is not a Scheduled drug. This means there are no laws controlling its possession within the UK.

Though there are many providers willing to sell Modafinil online outside the UK, we don’t recommend it. Doing so involves risking your financial details and possibly never receiving the goods you intended to purchase. If your order does arrive, it can be difficult to know if you have received an authentic or pure product or some unknown and possibly dangerous substitute. Most of the offshore providers for Modafinil are located in India or other countries where regulations are lax. This means there is the possibility that your product may be delayed or seized at the border and in most cases you will not receive a refund or compensation unless the product is returned to the vendor. Some individuals have reported success when ordering online, but remember the risk potential is high.
