Hello and welcome to our website! I am Modafinil, a racemic compound originally invented in France in 1970 by neurophysiologist Professor Michel Jouvet. At the time of my creation, my mechanism of action was still unknown, but a decade later, scientific evidence began to show that I am highly effective in treating several sleep disorders.

Since then, I have been approved for medicinal use in several countries, including the United States where I received approval in 1998 as a Schedule IV drug for the treatment of narcolepsy, and later in 2003 for shift work sleep disorder and obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea. In 2017, I was prescribed almost 900 thousand times in the United States alone and became the 328th most commonly prescribed medicine. Some people refer to me as a “smart drug” due to my ability to increase alertness and concentration.

My popularity grew further when I became the only medicine approved by the US Air Force in November 2012 and was later used by astronauts in their long-term space missions. Today, I am available in 21 countries across Europe and have become an essential tool for anyone seeking to improve their focus and productivity.

Despite my long and successful journey, I continue to improve and update myself to serve you better. Whether you’re a student, a professional, or anyone looking for a boost in productivity, I’m here to help. Thank you for considering me, and I hope to be a valuable tool on your journey towards success!
