Adrafinil is a nootropic supplement believed to help with alertness and wakefulness. First offered to the public in 1986, Adrafinil is thought to be a precursor to modafinil—a prescription drug used by narcoleptics to increase alertness— meaning that it metabolizes into modafinil upon ingestion . Many of the people that purchase Adrafinil are students or shift workers. Very little research has been done on Adrafinil since Modafinil showed evidence of being more effective. Do your research and be aware of the risks be supplementing with Adrafinil.
