    Son effet sur la sГ©rotonine est moins dГ©fini et son mГ©canisme d’action dans le sommeil n’est pas clair. Il a Г©tГ© dГ©montrГ© que le modafinil augmente les niveaux d’Г©nergie chez les personnes souffrant de troubles du sommeil liГ©s au travail postГ©. La barriГЁre hГ©mato-encГ©phalique n’est pas altГ©rГ©e par le modafinil aux doses habituellement utilisГ©es pour amГ©liorer les capacitГ©s cognitives.

    En dГ©cembre 2014, l’Agence mondiale antidopage a publiГ© un rapport, Modafinil : un stimulant cГ©rГ©bral aux propriГ©tГ©s d’amГ©lioration cognitive, qui comprenait de nouvelles preuves scientifiques montrant que le modafinil n’est pas un mГ©dicament destinГ© Г  amГ©liorer les performances sur ordonnance et qu’il n’existe aucune donnГ©e suggГ©rant qu’il s’agit d’un agent dopant. Alors que de nombreux stimulants augmentent la production de sГ©rotonine et de dopamine, le modafinil augmente l’activitГ© de ces produits chimiques.

    Le modafinil est connu pour interagir avec plusieurs systГЁmes de neurotransmetteurs, notamment la dopamine, la sГ©rotonine, l’adГ©nosine et l’histamine. Il existe une controverse sur la dГ©finition des amphГ©tamines, qui sont des composГ©s dГ©rivГ©s de l’amphГ©tamine, et sur leurs effets. Le modafinil est un composГ© racГ©mique de deux Г©nantiomГЁres ayant une activitГ© Г©galement forte et similaire.

Le mГ©dicament peut ГЄtre pris tous les jours ou par intermittence et ne semble pas affecter la capacitГ© de conduire en toute sГ©curitГ©.

    Le modafinil n’est pas destinГ© Г  traiter la somnolence diurne associГ©e Г  la narcolepsie. Cependant, le modafinil ne provoque pas de somnolence, mais augmente plutГґt l’Г©veil et l’activitГ© cГ©rГ©brale. Le modafinil et ses mГ©tabolites n’ont pas Г©tГ© identifiГ©s dans le sang ou l’urine humaine Г  la suite d’essais cliniques standard.

    Le modafinil est disponible Г  la fois comme mГ©dicament en vente libre et comme mГ©dicament sur ordonnance. Lorsque le cerveau et le corps reГ§oivent un neurotransmetteur, ils В« s’installent В» Г  cette concentration. Le modafinil peut ГЄtre utilisГ© pour traiter la somnolence excessive associГ©e Г  la narcolepsie, la somnolence causГ©e par le travail postГ©, la somnolence causГ©e par l’apnГ©e obstructive du sommeil et d’autres types de somnolence causГ©es par le manque de sommeil.
