Afinil Express Intro

Ever since the movie Limitless came out back in 2011, people have been intrigued at the possibility of a ‘limitless drug‘.

Drugs like Adderall and Vyvanse have been the go-to study drug for millions of college students in the US.

With that said, many have been turning to alternative drugs that can produce the same results without the side effects.

Enter Modafinil, sometimes called by its original name ‘Provigil’.

Modafinil is a wakefulness-promoting agent that is used to treat excessive sleepiness caused by diseases like narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and shift-work disorder. (Source)

Off label, it’s been used by college students, corporate executives, and biohackers alike to help them perform better in the classroom and boardroom.

One popular Modafinil vendor found online is Afinil Express, which is the focus of this review.

What is Afinil Express?

For the longest time, the only legit source for Modafinil online was Modafinil Cat.

I never posted a review of them, but I did buy many of their products and was surprised at how effective it was.

Fast forward 2 years and, for whatever reason, Modafinil Cat went out of business.

As a result, a bunch of guys were coming to me asking if I heard of a legit alternative to them.

It took about 7 months for me to find one, but luckily I did.

It’s called Afinil Express…

Afinil Express, as the name implies, sells various brands of Modafinil.

These include:

  • Modalert
  • Modvigil
  • Waklert
  • Artvigil

Let’s talk briefly about each of these so you can get an idea of how they’re supposed to help you.

What is Modalert?

Modalert 200 is basically the generic form of Modafinil.  It’s manufactured by a company called Sun Pharmaceuticals, which is located in Mumbai, India.

The company itself has been around for a long time, establishing itself as a low-cost pharmaceutical company in 1983.

One pill of Modalert contains 200 mg, which can be broken in half (or even quarters) if a full pill comes on too strong.

I prefer to take the whole pill, as a half dose just doesn’t seem to cut it.

Modalert is essentially the same exact thing as Modafinil, with a couple of small tweaks in its onset of action.

A typical dose will kick in about 2 hours after taking it, and the effects will peak about 6 hrs in.

The nice thing about Modalert is, unlike with Adderall, there’s no sudden or huge crash at the end of the day.

It’s a very slow comedown, which in many cases you won’t even notice.

What is Modvigil?

Modvigil, which is manufactured by a completely different pharmacy called HAB Pharma, is another brand of generic modafinil.

Hab Pharmaceuticals is another Indian pharmaceutical company that has been in business since 1980, and is a leading provider of a wide variety of generic medications.

Again, Modvigil is nearly identical to that of Modalert.

The only noticeable difference is that Modvigil hits its peak in about 5 hrs., vs. 6 hours with Modalert.

That’s at least what the manufacturer has to say.

I’ve noticed in my own personal testing that Modvigil seems to last way longer than that, with the effects tapering off at around the 8 hour mark.

Just like with Modalert, there’s no crash.

What is Artvigil?

Just like Modvigil, Artvigil is also manufactured by HAB Pharmaceuticals.

Artvigil is actually a generic version of modafinil called Armodafinil, which is also a wakefulness promoting agent and cognitive enhancer.

Long story short, it gets you awake and keeps you awake.

On average, Artvigil shares the same effects timeline of Modalert.

The same core mechanism of action exists between both of them.

They work on the brain in a number of ways, by inhibiting the reuptake of dopamine, increasing norepinephrine, elevating histamine, and causing orexin activation.

So what’s the main difference between Armodafinil and Modafinil?

armodafinil vs modafinil

Modafinil exists as two enantiomers, which are basically just different configurations of the molecule.

There’s an R and an S enantiomer, with the former being being more active than the latter.

When you use Modafinil, you’re using a racemic mixture, which means that 50% of the drug is R-modafinil and the other 50% is S-modafinil.

However, with Armodafinil, there is no mixture. (Source)

You’re only getting the R-enantiomer configuration of the molecule.

Translation: It’s a WAY stronger version.

I can concur with this, as you’ll learn in my review below.

What is Waklert?

Wakalert is the same thing as Artvigil, but it’s made by Sun Pharmaceuticals.

It has the same mechanism of action that Armodafinil dose, and the dose is exactly the same (150 mg).

However, unlike the rest of these the onset of action is about an hour longer, it lasts about 2 hours longer, and drops off 1 hour less.

So which one should I use?

The answer to this is, it depends.

In my personal experience, they all work very well.

If you help a gun to my head and told me I could only choose 1, I would say Modalert 200 would be the way to go.

If you asked me to rank them in order of most effective to least effective, I would rank them like this:

#1:  Modalert
#2: Wakalert
#3:  Modvigil
#4:  Artvigil

Again, they are all very effective.

With that said, in my experience there were some subtle differences.

Differences In Effects Timeline

Officially, there isn’t a huge difference in how long each of these work for.

modvigil vs modalert vs waklert vs artvigil effects timeline chart

Unofficially, I experience some differences than the chart above would suggest.

For example, Modalert works for about 8 hours for me, and doesn’t come on too strong.

On the other hand, Artvigil comes on a bit too strong, and most times lasts way into the night.

If I take a dose of Artivigil any time past noon, I’ll literally be staring at the ceiling until 2 in the morning.

Modalert allows me to get a solid 5 hours of work in, completely uninterrupted, and doesn’t give me any sort of crash at the end of the day.

In my personal experience, I think it’s best that you go with the trail pack that Afinil Express offers.

It will allow you to try all 4 of them, without having to fork over a ton of cash.

You get 10 pills of each one, and it will only run you about $75.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Modafinil Safe?

Generally speaking, yes.

It’s been determined that the median lethal dose for Modafinil in lab rats is 1250 mg/kg. (Source)

To put that in perspective, in theory a 170 lb human would have to consume 96,250 mg of it to overdose.

That translates to 481 pills to cause a fatal overdose.

One study examined an unsuccessful suicide attempt by a 15 year old kid who tried to OD on Modafinil.

She took 5000 mg (50 pills) of Modafinil, and despite suffering from some headaches, nausea, and abdominal pain, survived the event with no deterioration of kidney or liver functions, and no change in blood count or BP. (Source)

With all this said, there are some potential adverse effects.

What are the side effects?

Since they’re all basically the same thing, they share nearly the same adverse effects.

I’m not gonna sugarcoat things and tell you that they’re completely side effect free, because they’re not.

Some of the more common side effects you may experience with Modafinil include:

  • Headache
  • Insomnia (especially if taken too late in the day)
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Upset stomach

Is This Even Legal?

Technically speaking, no.

Legally, you’re supposed to be diagnosed with a disease like Narcolepsy, Shift-work sleep disorder, or sleep apnea, and receive a prescription from a licensed physician.

With that said, there has only been one case involving modafinil possession and possession alone that resulted in an significant punishment.

In that case, the defendant had a fairly lengthy criminal record.

That was nearly the only one we could find.

If you don’t believe me, visit this article and scroll down to the “Legal Risk” section.

The author of this article did extensive research of law journals, Lexis Nexis, Google Scholar, and state-level court case searches and found no evidence of anyone who has ever been busted for possessing Modafinil alone. (other and the Missouri case)

Every instance involved possession of some other substance, and in one case the dude who was possessing Modafinil tried pushing some woman on to the train tracks!

Moral of the story?  Don’t try and push someone on to the train tracks when you have a bottle of Modafinil on you.

There are certain countries where ordering Modafinil via Afinil Express is just not gonna happen.

They include the following:  Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates.

If you live in one of these countries, or are afraid of breaking any local laws, I would recommend you pick up a substance called Adrafinil.

Specifically, I would recommend you get the Nootropics All-Star Pack from Absorb Your Health.
