Experiences With The Brandeds Provigil/nuvigil Vs Its Generics

6 posts in this topic

Does someone noticed differences when using Provigil and its generics or Nuvigil vs Wakalert (Indian Sun Pharma)?


How about differences between the brazilian branded Stavigile (modafinil) against Provigil? I don't know if the one sold in Brazil is a generic one or imported by the brazilian laboratory from Cephalon. It started being sold in Brazil in 2008, before Cephalons patent expired (2012).


I'm also curious for experiences with the meds sold in Chile, Resotyl (modafinil) and Neoresotyl (armodafinil), have someone tryed both and compared the results with the branded or even generics sold in the USA?

Considering armodafinil, there is four brands:

Brand Names

And also, that is not in this list:

Is there someone here who already used more than one of these brands that could tell us your experience, if there is differences in the effects?

Yes.  I used Alertec and Apo-Modafinil.  Alertec caused chest pain for me whereas Apo-Modafinil did not.  Apo-modafinil was gentler and had less side effects.
