MODAFINIL

is a stimulating drug which is used in the treatment of narcolepsy, with an unknown mechanism. Theories suggest that modafinil may exert its effect by decreasing the level of GABA mediated neurotransmission in the brain and therefore decreasing the potential for glutamate transmission.

MODAFINIL: "Modafinil is a drug which stimulates the nervous system and is therefore used in the treatments of conditions such as narcolepsy."
