WHAT IS MODALERT?
Modalert is essentially identical to Provigil branded Modafinil from Cephalon Inc. The only difference being the brand name and price. Modalert is a generic form of Modafinil which is considerably cheaper than the commonly prescribed Provigil. Each Modalert tablet contains exactly 200mg of pure Modafinil. Although there are other generic 200mg Modafinil alternatives, Modalert has been the stern favorite among online buyers.
Modalert is sold in blister packs containing 10 tablets per strip. Blister strips are made of highly flexible aluminum, making the entire strip foldable for easy transport. Please see the image above.Who Manufactures Modalert?

MODALERT DOSAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
Much like our other brands of Modafinil (Modvigil) and Armodafinil (Artvigil), each tablet is carefully manufactured to include a breaker line along the center of the tablet. This means that each 200mg tablet may be broken in half (along the breaker line) to give an accurate 100mg dose. For many users, 100mg is more than enough to give an adequate feeling of wakefulness, focus and attention. Depending on the individual’s circumstances, some users may take 200mg to attain the desired effects.
It’s important to understand your specific metabolism and individual reaction to Modafinil. So we recommend taking 100mg on an empty stomach as early as possible. You should begin to notice the effects within 1 hour, with effects beginning to diminish after approximately 6 – 8 hours. It is not recommended to take more than 400mg (two tablets) in any given 24 hours. Please read the official product insert of Provigil branded Modafinil.
The recommended dosage of Provigil for each indication is as follows:
Narcolepsy or Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): 200 mg once a day in the morning.
Shift Work Disorder (SWD): 200 mg once a day, taken approximately one hour prior to start of the work shift.
MODALERT SIDE EFFECTS & PRECAUTIONS
