As harmful as "Modafinil Smart Medicines" Part 2

3년 전


It can be seen that Josh's modafinil use is infrequent, but what is the effect of periodic drinking?

Modafinil is often used to treat sleep disorders. Some other drugs, such as Ritalin, Adderall, are used in the treatment of ADHD, which is equivalent to Provigil, Modalert, and a group of drugs called ampakines, which are used to treat Alzheimer's. and Parkinson.

Tests have shown that these drugs can help to focus, remember and awaken in a different way to the neurotransmitter - a messenger of the brain. However, the benefits of these "smart drugs" have been exaggerated in lecture halls, warned by regulators and pharmacists. Some experts believe that this drug, when infused into the brain, is addictive and dangerous to the brain in the long run, but children still buy it as a way to increase concentration in the exam.

Barbara Sahakian, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge in the United States, says the scientists understand the mechanism of action of drugs such as Ritalin - which stimulates dopamine and noradrenaline neurotransmitters in the brain. These substances will affect emotions, cognition and memory. If taken at a moderate dose, the doctor's appointment, it is really useful for the brain but if self-administered and overdose, it will be addictive.

With modafinil, no one really knows how the mechanism works for this cognitive enhancement in humans. However, there is evidence that modafinil affects the level of dopamine. This is an important sign because dopamine can lead to addiction. In addition, the drug can cause immediate effects when overdose.

For example, a third-year student at the London Metropolitan University's IT department who used modafinil as a salvage to pass the tough exams introduced this miracle drug to his girlfriend. . As a result, this friend had to be hospitalized after five days without being able to sleep due to overdose. The girl has high blood pressure, nervous anxiety and manifested hallucinations, mental disorders.

Since all "smart drugs" are derived from illegal drug sellers, the use of arbitrary students is a serious mistake. The side effects of these drugs are long lasting, the more they drink, the greater the risk of dependence and serious consequences later.
