Armodafinil is a prescription drug used to promote wakefulness. It is mostly given to people who are excessively sleepy as a consequence of sleep disorders. It’s also used to help those who need to stay alert during working hours if their work hours prevent them from having a regular sleep routine.

Armodafinil is a wakefulness-promoting agent that influences the chemical in the brain that triggers sleeping and being awake. It is used along with other treatments in preventing sleepiness. Armodafinil has a longer half-life compared with other stimulant-like drugs such as Modafinil. It has higher plasma concentrations in the body later in the day. That means it may result in better wakefulness later in the day.

Description

Uses of Armodafinil

Armodafinil is FDA-approved for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness associated with:

  • Sleep apnea: A type of serious sleep disorder in which breathing rapidly stops and starts.
  • Narcolepsy: A sleep disorder that can cause sleep paralysis, hallucinations, and excessive sleepiness. Some patients experience episodes of muscle weakness triggered by a strong emotion, such as laughter.
  • Shift work sleep disorder: A sleeping disorder characterized by insomnia and excessive sleepiness that affects shift workers.

It’s often used off label in the treatment of conditions like:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

How does it work?

Armodafinil’s exact mode of action in promoting wakefulness is unclear, but it is thought to work on the central nervous system. Armodafinil helps promote wakefulness and improve attentiveness to those with sleeping disorders by affecting certain substances in the brain that control the sleep and wake cycle. Armodafinil stimulates the production of dopamine in the brain and reduces the reuptake of dopamine into the nerves. Dopamine is a chemical substance that nerves use to communicate with each other.

  • Adults: 150 mg to 250 mg once a day. Take the medicine in the morning

  1. Anissa Williams

    For more than three years, I was taking modafinil. Then just today, I shifted to armodafinil and I feel much much better. With modafinil, I need to take two tablets to avoid the sleepiness and foggy thoughts. However, it also makes me nauseous. But with just one tablet of this armodafinil, I am able to stay awake the entire day and I haven’t had a feeling of wanting to vomit. I’m sticking to this.

    When I was having a very hard time staying awake at work and got diagnosed with a sleep disorder, I thought it’s gonna be the end of my career. My life was a mess and nothing seems to go right. But when I was put on this medication, I started to enjoy my work again and I get to have just the right amount of sleep that my body needs. I haven’t experienced any side effects so far – and I hope it stays that way.
