You can ask here weather
1. Nuvigil is just as effective as Provigl, and if so why are they trying to get you pay a lot more for something that is not any more effective
2. Nuvigil is more effective or better than Provigil, and if so why did they purposely force you to use a less effective more harmful drug for many years?
Yes I was wondering if you could help me. I am 65 and have worked in the investment business for 38 years. I am over weight and tired all the time. I have been treated for mono and tick disease as the cause of my exhaustion. When I take Nuvigil I feel wonderful bit the more I take the less effective it is. I not only appreciate the energy but the feeling of wellbeing I get with the nuvigil. I would like to know what in the nuvigil causes this and what does my body lack. I would really appreciate any insight you may have.
From a peer review study it limits some GABA receptors, binding to some dopamine, serotonin, works with a histamine some way and several other chemicals I don't really know about yet. I have horrible sleep wake cycles with ADD, and Provigil is the only thing that's helped me. Finding a solution for sleep has been tough until a day ago when I tried camomile tea. Camomile increases Gaba and binds to the same receptors as xanax. I've been zonked and ready for sleep 15 minutes after drinking lavender chamomile lemon balm, linden flower tea Night Tea. Because of the changing pharmaceutical prices, Nuvigil is actually cheaper this month. What's the oxygen bound to. Also your saying right sided bonding versus left side during bonding doesn't make much of a difference? Has anyone tried both? I'd really like to save a hundred dollars this month and go with whatever is the cheapest.
Great channel on nootropics , why do doctor write adderal like candy but won;t give nuvigil or provigial ? is it just my experience? I am about to try racetams for the first time , are they worth the money? It is so hard to know what is a waste on money as I biuy many supplements. I constantly buy DMAE and alcar just because I have read the best but they don't make me feel anything.
There is a difference between the two pills. Nuvigil is significantly better than Provigil. I've been taking the medication for nearly a decade now and noticed a significant improvement when I began Nuvigil vs Provigil. I constantly yawned with provigil to the point where it would hurt and I had a harder time catching my breath.
But what exactly do these drugs do and do they work I seen something saying that there was no known side effects and that the drugs helps you with focusing and can help you to stay awake, which if that is true then what is the difference between adderall and provigil?
The company first had provigil because it worked, not because they "planned" to release an inferior product smartass. Most products are made better with time, its no different with provigil. You "smart" people lack common sense
If the company was aware that Provigil is inferior to Nuvigil, then I believe they absolutely did market it first. And unless there is any way to prove this, they could never be sued anyway. So it makes perfect sense that they did exactly what you are alleging because it would bring them a lot more profit. And that is their priority. It's all about MONEY.
Not really more harmful. This is an exceedingly common practice. When the drug becomes older and nears time for patents to expire, the drug is tweaked enough for a new patent so patents continue as do profits.
R-modafinil has approximately a 3x longer half-life than the S enantiomer. So both enantiomers have utility- it's not that one is necessarily inferior. R-modafinil's 15 hour half life is too long for some people who need to sleep regular hours, so the racemic mix is more optimal for their use.
Did thenm both for a few months each, Provigil was more stimulating increased process speed in brain is the best way I can describe it, Nuvigil,is not stimulating and I really didn't notice very much,perhaps nuvigil would be consider cleaner because it is less stimulating. I would prefer Provigil personally since cognitive function increase was noticed could process quicker, example would be typing faster things like that. NOT increased intelligence that is something all these drugs do not do in fact can be a negative in certain kinds ways, like over focus which can make you look like an idiot lol, miss other things there is trade offs with so many drugs.
Your comparison is wrong
its more Provigil Vs Nuvigil
is like Adderal vs Dexedrine
One is a racemix the other is a sterospecific compound
Vyvanse has an L-Lysine group attached to it which needs to be cleaved for it to activate. a Bio time release method. Or one could use trypsin to take off the L-lysin group.

I've tried Nuvigil and it's amazing. But it isn't a true stimulant, so I doubt it's effectiveness for a "buzz." Sorry to be a buzz kill! I really don't know what would happen at higher doses. It's also more expensive that cocaine. Nuvigil is a mindblowing $700. for just 30 tablets, just another way for Big Pharma to rob you blind with these clearly insane prices. It's cousin, Provigil, just went generic, and goes for around 100 bucks. This stuff, modafinil, just makes you stay alert, and is as smooth as butter—no jarring high or terrible crashes.
Well, these are generally answers to individual people's questions, so I don't want to repeat the whole thing over again. Its pretty decent comparison, in the fact that they are mirror images of each other, but the effects of dextro and levoamphetamine are quite different, where here they both seem to have the same effect as far as can be understood as of now.
The idea behind these drugs Nuvigil, Adderall, and Vyvanse is to repatent the drug. That was the purpose of the comparison there.
+Zeke N. Yeshallfind Its just to show that they are almost identical and the only difference is that they are mirror images of each other. Like hands similar but distinct. Left handed gloves cannot go on the right hand.
The difference between Provigil and Nuvigil is provigil is a 50/50 mix of both and Nuvigil is just one of them. The both have the same effects in the body just like either hand can open a door.
+furenaef I'm not a medical professional so please don't take this as me dispensing medical advice. I'm merely sharing with others what has worked for me.
I did enjoy the stated effects of modafinil, as prescribed to me by a doctor. However, I later discovered that I could experience almost the same benefits using substances with a lower chance of harm. I recommend you start reading here: http://www.longecity.org/forum/forum/169-brain-health/
As should always be done when it comes to "biohacking" of any sort, plan out the experiment and take notes!
+ONEEZE Did you by chance get to read George Church's latest book? It's called Regenesis and there is a significant portion devoted to chirality and potential therapies.
Thank you so much! I have done a bit of research and talked to my psychiatrist between the time I commented and the time you made this video. I'll be making a video response with some of the knowledge I acquired and some more questions later. I'll be rewatching the Vivance vs Adderal video before I do that. Anyways thank you again, love the channel!
