Modafinil is a wakefulness-promoting agent (or eugeroic) used for treatment of disorders such asnarcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder, and excessive daytime sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea. It has also seen widespread off-label use as a purported cognition-enhancing agent. In English-speaking countries it is sold under the brand names Alertec, Modavigil, and Provigil. In the United States modafinil is classified as a schedule IV controlled substance and restricted in availability and usage, due to concerns about possible addiction potential. In most other countries it is a prescription drug but not otherwise legally restricted.
Although the mechanism of action of modafinil was initially unknown, it now appears that drug acts as a selective, relatively weak, atypical dopamine reuptake inhibitor, a notion that is supported by an abundance of evidence. However, it appears that other, additional mechanisms may also be at play.
