There are many reasons you may want to buy modafinil online. Maybe you want to save money on your prescription, or perhaps you’re thinking of using modafinil for its nootropic properties.
Whatever your reason, you’ll be glad to know there are several reliable, and trustworthy sources which do sell modafinil. I use them, as do thousands of others. But, before we talk about specifics, there are a few things you may want to be aware of prior to buying modafinil online.
Is Modafinil Legal
In many countries around the world, including the US, UK, Australia, and Canada, modafinil is classified as a prescription only drug. So buying it without one is technically not legal. Other countries may carry similar classifications. I’m just unfortunately not aware of the specifics.
If legality is a show-stopper for you, you may want to consider instead adrafinil. It’s a product that is very similar to modafinil but entirely legal to buy and own. It’s what is called a prodrug to modafinil and becomes it once metabolized by your body. The downside is adrafinil is much slower to act.
If you are still reading, I will assume you’re throwing caution to the wind. While I, of course, am in no way trying to encourage that, there is one thing I will say. I’m US based, and in all my years of buying modafinil online not once did I have any major issues. Authorities seem to have much bigger fish to fry and very rarely pursue anyone over personal use of modafinil.
When you buy modafinil online, you’re getting a product made in India by one of two companies: Sun Pharma or HAB Pharma. While this may sound shady to some, don’t let it turn you off. Both companies are massive international pharmaceutical firms where products are made to similar standards as in the US. So there is no concern about quality.
The reasons you see Indian companies making modafinil is that by that country’s law, these firms are not required to respect medical patents that came before 1995. Modafinil has been around since 1990.
If you’re wondering which company produces a better drug, there’s ultimately very little, if any, difference. Sun Pharma and HAB Pharma follow the same standards. I have used modafinil made by both, and as far as I could tell, it’s all the same.
For reference, the modafinil and armodafinil products made by Sun are called Modalert and Waklert. Those made by HAB go by the names Modvigil and Artvigil.
Where to Buy Modafinil Online
So since all modafinil you can buy online is produced by one of two companies, does it really matter from where you buy? The answer is a definite yes. While you are getting the same product, the reliability and trustworthiness of each seller are what should be your concern.
I prefer to give my hard earned money to a company that is reliable and will stand behind their service and the product they ship. I have enough headaches in my life to have to worry about yet something else.
There are currently four modafinil vendors I am comfortable giving a thumbs up to based on a combination of my own experience and feedback from friends and people on various online nootropics communities like Reddit. Those vendors are as follows.
A relatively new online modafinil seller, AfinilExpress has seen very quick growth and widespread adoption. This likely has to do with the fact that when ModafinilCat, formerly the largest and best know modafinil online store, closed down in mid-2016, AfinilExpress was their recommended alternative. It never hurts being vouched for by the biggest player in town.
AfinilExpress has free shipping and package tracking worldwide. As forms of payment, they accept Mastercard, Visa, and Bitcoin. Customers who pay with Bitcoin will receive a 20% discount on the purchase. And if you return for your future modafinil needs, you will also receive an additional 10% discount on your orders.
Widely regarded as a very reliable modafinil vendor, DuckDose also has some great branding behind it. Similar to AfinilExpress, they have free worldwide shipping and tracking. They also accept Mastercard, Visa, and Bitcoin as payment, and will give you a 20% discount if you order with the latter. Returning customers receive a one-time 15% discount on their second purchase.
The one thing DuckDose has going against it is it’s not super clear how to contact Customer Support. I found an email address on one of their pages (firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re looking) and not a whole lot more. I have not had a single issue with these guys and never needed support, but it’s something to keep in mind.
While thus far I only used ModUP a couple of times, I have heard enough positive things from multiple sources that I have no hesitation suggesting them as a potential modafinil source.
Where ModUP shines is with their customer support and community-centric approach. You can reach support via email or by phone, which is pretty rare. They also run an active forum where you ask and read about anything from the ordering process to how to best use modafinil.
Along the same lines as the other sellers, ModUP takes Mastercard, Visa, and Bitcoin. Their order discount for using Bitcoin is a very healthy 33%.
Another vendor you can’t go wrong with, ModPharma is a bit more expensive than the others, but they do have the quickest shipping. If you needed your modafinil yesterday, they’re probably the ones to go with. Those in the UK can expect their shipment to arrive in as little as 4 to 7 business days, and everyone else is looking at 6 to 12. Shipping is free.
ModPharma has customer support that is easy to reach 24/7. They take Mastercard, Visa, and Bitcoin. Their Bitcoin discount is a slightly lower 15%.
I have been perfectly happy with the product and service received from all four vendors. If you asked me to pick best place to buy modafinil, I would probably go with AfinilExpress. It seems to be the one I gravitate to the most. The 20% Bitcoin discount combined with the 10% returning customer discount has been adding up for me nicely over the long run.
