Smart pills are taken to boost up our active energy. The first synthetic smart pill was piracetam which came to the market in the 60s.

Smart pills are known for boosting up our active energy. But, the working energy of the smart pills is not known. According to the experts, smart pills stimulate the movement of the neurotransmitters to boost up our activeness. As a smart pill, probably, Nuvigil follows the same mechanism. The active ingredient of this smart pill is Armodafinil. According to the experts, the active component of this smart pill increases the quantity of Dopamine throughout the action of dropping its reuptake into the nerves. Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter that helps our brain to enhance mood and motivation. When one takes this pill, it blocks the neurons and stops the brain from shutting down. It creates the wake-promoting neurons and helps us to stay active. By following this working mechanism, Nuvigil helps us to stay active and alert
Nuvigil is a very strong smart pill. It is effective up to 15 hours. The prescribed dose for Nuvigil is 150 mg in one day. Exceeding this amount during this given time period is counted as an overdose of Nuvigil. There is a wrong notion that smart pill can increase our brain power and activeness which is totally wrong. Those only help us to stay focus because nowadays, we have to lose our focus on our goal. Those help us to stay awake, but they cannot take the place of sound sleep. So, as Nuvigil is a smart pill while taking it we should be very careful. An overdose of this medicine can cause various problems like a fast heartbeat, shaking hands, a heavy slow lethargic feeling, and slight headache, back pain and neck pain, sensitive joints, tiredness and also it can make one suffer from insomnia.
Nuvigil tolerance is also a serious problem. It should not be used continuously for long period of time. When one becomes tolerant of a drug, the drug stop work as per expectation. Same happens with Nuvigil. When one becomes Nuvigil tolerant, he or she cannot live without the drug. So, Nuvigil should be taken with doctor’s advice.
In this blog, only the risk of overdose and tolerance are discussed. There are other risk factors also which we will discuss in future. Take Nuvigil in the proper way and stay active
