Modvigil Review: The Cheapest Form of Generic Modafinil?
I am a huge fan of Modalert, but after trying this competitor – I felt compelled to write this Modvigil review. Why? Because Modvigil works really well, and it's cheaper!
See, when my first batch of Modalert 200 ran out, I was a little low on cash. Buying Modafinil was a priority, but I needed something cheap. So I started searching online and came across Modvigil. Many people suggested that I try Modvigil, a generic form of Modafinil, if I was trying to save a few bucks.
I was skeptical at first due to all the success I had with Modalert, but I still decided to give this a try. After all, I’d been using Modafinil for a long time! Luckily, the product works quite well and I noted significant cognitive benefits when on Modvigil.
So, I decided to write this Modvigil review for all those who can't afford Modalert or are simply looking to try new alternatives.
Every human body is different—so, what works for one may not necessarily work well for someone else. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a look at this generic modafinil alternative.

A Background Story: Modafinil
Modafinil—a nootropic pharmaceutical drug was developed initially in France to treat disorders such as shift sleep disorder, narcolepsy, and sleep apnea (Source).
Soon enough, people found out that the drug could be used as a ‘smart drug’ to increase one’s cognitive abilities and was widely used by students, hustlers, etc.
And, pharmaceuticals around the world started making generic forms of Provigil.

Modvigil Review: Introduction
Modvigil is similar in effect to Modalert 200mg but costs half as much. The nootropic is manufactured by HAB Pharmaceuticals which is a reputable Indian manufacturer with that produces high-quality generic medications.
Although HAB is not as big as SUN Pharmaceuticals, Modvigil is known to be very effective.
People consider Modvigil to be more potent than Modalert. But since we all have different physiologies, I would advise you to try it for yourself—after all, not two human bodies are the same!
For me, Modvigil worked really well, but I do have a preference for Modalert and I tend to stick to that.
But, keep in mind that it is my personal preference.
Know Your Pharma: HAB Pharmaceuticals
Established in the early 1980s, HAB Pharmaceuticals & Research Ltd is known to make high-quality generic medicines. The company’s philosophy is:
“Satisfaction and Growth through Customer Service, Product Quality, and Innovation”.
The company is headquartered in Maharashtra, India and makes Modvigil—which is a generic form of Modafinil cheaper than Modalert 200.
A Comparison Between Modalert 200 and Modvigil
Everyone has their personal preferences.
While some like Modalert over Modvigil, others swear by the latter—even though the differences between these two drugs aren’t much, to begin with.
Being a generic version of Modafinil, the following are the benefits of Modvigil:
- Wakefulness: After taking this drug, you will be able to stay awake for at least 8-15 hours—but keep in mind that if you’re planning to sleep at night, you should take it before noon.
- Increased Productivity: You’ll find the most cumbersome and boring work is easy after taking Modvigil and increase your daily output by two fold.
- Improved Cognition: People feel smarter after taking Modvigil and notice the classic cognitive benefits of the smart drug.
- Increased Focus: When you want to increase your focus on studies or work, Modvigil will help you with that.
Although Modvigil and Modalert are the same, they do have a few differences. Let’s take a look:
I feel that Modvigil has a little smaller half-life compared to Modalert and its effects to only last for about 8-10 hours—but that’s how the drug works for my body. While I can feel the effects of Modalert or 12-15 hours!
So, I take Modvigil when I want to focus on my studies during the day but, also sleep at night.
Most people that I know also tend to feel that Modvigil isn’t as strong as Modalert. I feel that if you’re new to taking smart drugs, Modvigil is what you should begin with. And, if you find it to be too weak, you can work your way up from there.
The thing that I loved about Modvigil during my college days was that it is probably the cheapest form of Modafinil available in the market—in fact, Modvigil is even cheaper than Modalert!
So, I recommend this to students.
Modvigil Review: Dosage Information
Before taking a nootropic, it is really important for you to know about the dosage.
When it comes to Modvigil, a standard dose of 200 mg is probably the best. In fact, when taking any form of Modafinil, you should always aim for a 200 mg dose.
However, if you’re a newbie, you can split the pill into two and take 100 mg doses, in the beginning, to see how your body reacts to the pill.
There’s one more thing!
In order to get a good night’s rest, I would recommend you to take the dose of Modvigil before noon as the effects can last up to 16 hours for some people.
Following are the dosage guidelines for this drug:
- New Users should start by taking 100mg per day and take it an hour prior to the planned activity for optimal results.
- Users that suffer from Sleep Apnea or Narcolepsy should take a 200 mg dose a day to keep the symptoms at bay.
- Users that have a Shift Work Disorders are also recommended a 200 mg a day an hour before leaving for work.
- You should never take more than 400 mg (or two pills of Modvigil) a day to avoid long term consequences.
Modvigil Review: Potent Generic Modafinil or Dud Smart Drug?
Even though all generic Modafinil brands are similar (after all, it is the same thing!) I feel that Modvigil is a light smart drug that helps you get the job done with a shorter half-life. That's why I wrote this Modvigil review.
So, I believe this form of generic Modafinil is perfect when you want to get your work done and be able to sleep well at night.
I feel that the main benefits of Modvigil are the same as those of all other modafinil brands. But, I do feel that you should give Modvigil a try if you are:
- Just entering the world of nootropics and ‘smart drugs’
- Looking for something a bit lighter
Do keep in mind that no two individuals are the same and what may work for me may not necessarily work for you. So, in order to know how Modvigil works for your body, you should try it for yourself and then, make a decision.

Whether you're a student or just someone looking to improve their life and make more money, smart drugs can help you do just that. That's why I created this site.
