Modafinil – an active substance that acts on the human brain, preventing attacks of narcolepsy. This substance is able to stimulate brain activity, removing drowsiness. Of course, this property is manifested not only in patients with narcolepsy, but also in any person whose activity and attention are reduced as a result of lack of sleep. This leads to the danger of abuse of modafinil. However, researchers are trying to prove that the drug is not addictive and has no drug potential. The remedy works like amphetamines, increasing the release of dopamine and norepinephrine. But, also, in the hypothalamus, the level of histamine rises.
