Armodafinil – the R-enantiomer of modafinil (mixture of R- and S-enantiomers) with the longer half-life. Armodafinil’s mechanism of action is not completely determined. Armodafinil does not bind to or inhibit several receptors and enzymes potentially relevant for sleep/wake regulation, including those for serotonin, dopamine, adenosine, galanin, melatonin, melanocortin, orexin-1, orphanin, PACAP or benzodiazepines, or transporters for GABA, serotonin, norepinephrine, and choline or phosphodiesterase VI, COMT, GABA transaminase, and tyrosine hydroxylase. Besides wakefulness-promoting effects and ability to increase locomotor activity, Armodafinil also has psychoactive and euphoric effects, improves mood, perception, thinking, and feelings, i.e. has a stimulating effect.
