What is the main difference between amphetamines
Dr. Gary Zammit, one of the founders of Modafinil, said
that this medicine is not an amphetamine. It is a unique product
that influences on certain brain centers and regulates the process
of waking. Of course, this preparation is not intended to relieve
a person from sleeping for a long time or at all. The researches
in this direction were not carried out. However, some scientists
believe that the medicine can be used to maintain high level of
attention and clarity of thought during the long absence of sleep.
The usage of Modafinil as a stimulant of attention showed that
unlike amphetamines it has positive influence on memory, mental
and physical activity without serious side-effects. The medicine
does not cause syndrome of dependency, it practically does not cause
euphoria and reduces peripheral stimulation of the nervous system,
has little effect on blood pressure. During clinical researches
it has been proven the safety of Modafinil.
It is to be used by many soldiers of different armies of the world.
Previously it was used the preparation of amphetamine Dexedrine,
that had significant side effects such as nervousness, anger, sense
of powerlessness and tremor.
Unlike amphetamines Modafinil helps to be active for 40 hours without
sleep without significant side-effects.
