When you’re looking to buy modafinil, you typically have two choices: get it from your favorite neighborhood pharmacy, or buy it online.
More and more people are leaning towards the latter. And it’s pretty obvious why. There are several significant advantages to getting modafinil through the internet:
- You order the product from your home, and its (discretely) delivered to your home, making the process easy and convenient.
- You don’t need a prescription.
- It’s much, much cheaper.
That said, before you buy modafinil online, there are a few important things to consider, or at least to be aware of.
Depending on where you live, getting modafinil this way may or may not be legal. You need to know which generic products are quality and which are not. And, finally, you have to find a reputable source from which to buy (one that will stand behind the product and its delivery).
This article discusses all three of these things (and more).
Is Buying Modafinil Legal In Your Country
The laws around buying and possessing modafinil are different in every country.
Most countries consider it a prescription-only drug. That means unless you have a prescription, you will not be able to get it at a local pharmacy.
But, just because you need a prescription to purchase it, it’s not illegal to own. Likewise, just because you can’t get it locally without permission from your doctor, doesn’t mean you can’t do so from somewhere else where prescriptions are not needed.
Indeed, most people around the world, and certainly those based out of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, or any other western country, can assume the above to be the case.
Importing Modafinil from Abroad
When you buy modafinil online, the source of shipment (in order of likelihood) will be either India, Singapore, or the UK. Unless you live in one of those countries, your product will need to be imported.
If your country requires a prescription for you to buy modafinil locally, it will likely also need one for you to bring in the product from abroad. If you don’t have a prescription, technically, your order will not be allowed to clear customs. In practice, however, it almost always does.
Customs only inspect a minuscule subset of packages that enter a country. Odds are firmly stacked in your favor that they will not take a closer look at your shipment. In which case, you can expect it to arrive at your doorstep a day or two later.
In the off chance customs does inspect your order, before clearing it, they will send a letter to the destination address asking to see a prescription (here’s an example of what a modafinil letter from U.S. Customs looks like).
That letter can simply be ignored. Border services will then proceed to destroy the shipment, and your modafinil vendor will just re-send your order free of charge (assuming, of course, you’re using a reputable source).
Where Is Online Modafinil Made
Both companies are huge and reputable pharmaceutical firms. They have both have been around for decades and produce a vast range of high-quality medication, not just modafinil.
Sun Pharmaceuticals produces generic modafinil and armodafinil under the brand names Modalert and Waklert respectively.
HAB Pharmaceuticals’ generics are called Modvigil and Modawake.
Products from both companies are equally popular and are considered equivalents in terms of quality to the brand name versions of the drug, Provigil and Nuvigil.
How Much Does Modafinil Cost
The cost of modafinil varies greatly depending on who makes it and sells it.
Not surprisingly, brand name products are the most expensive. Provigil and Nuvigil, the most common brands for modafinil and armodafinil, cost between $20 and $60 per pill depending on the source and strength (typically 100 mg or 200 mg for modafinil, and 150 mg for armodafinil).
That is not cheap. Though, depending on your medical coverage, at least some of this cost may be reimbursable.
Even though they’re chemically the same substance, generic versions of modafinil and armodafinil brands are significantly cheaper. You can typically expect to pay between $0.80 and $3.00 per dose, again, depending on the source, strength, and manufacturer.
If you’re looking to bring the cost down even further, most online modafinil sellers also offer discounts (usually around 20%) if you don’t pay by credit card. Credit cards tend to charge high fees to internet pharmacies. When sellers don’t need to pay those fees, they’re happy to pass on savings on to you.
How to Find an Online Modafinil Vendor
There are many online sellers of modafinil, almost to the point of being overwhelming. But, as is the case with most things, some are better than others.
When deciding on a vendor, there are two things you should look into before spending money with them: the quality of the product sold, and the quality (and reputation) of the seller.
There are a few generic versions of modafinil made by companies other than HAB Pharmaceuticals and Sun Pharmaceuticals. Some are just as good. Others are not.
HAB and Sun products are generally considered to be the highest quality modafinil generics in the market. It’s a good idea to only stick to sellers who carry their products:
When you’re buying one of the above, you know you’re getting quality.
As mentioned earlier, many vendors sell modafinil online. Unfortunately, not all are created equal.
For the lack of a better way to describe them, a few sellers are just plain bad. This is not intentional or malicious. It’s due to poor execution.
Those vendors either lack the proper resources or experience to succeed with building on online business (which, admittedly, is not always an easy task).
Others sellers, however, can be intentionally malicious or scammy (or both). Their entire business model usually revolves around one of two things.
They may be after your personal information with the aim of selling it. Even things like the username and password you create for the store is valuable (since many people reuse the same credentials across multiple sites).
Or, they may simply be trying to scam you out of your money and have no intention of delivering any product after you make payment.
There are several things which should trigger red flags about a seller.
- Domain names with odd spelling or typos (especially if they don’t exactly match the company name or are similar to another well-established brand)
- Prices and offers which are significantly better than any competition (in other words, deals which are too good to be true)
- No response from customer support
- Payments are taken using an insecure platform (no https)
- Payments are requested via bank transfer (never, ever do this)
- No return or refund policy
If you run into some or any of these points, the odds of the seller being a bad one or a scam increase and you should avoid them.
Another great way of ensuring an online seller of modafinil is both quality and reputable is to seek out other people’s opinion on them.
Reddit has a massive community of modafinil users and is an excellent source for that type of information. Forums like LongeCity and Blue Light also have large smart drug user communities. They too are good places where you can check a seller’s reputation.
Where to Buy Modafinil Online
Of all the modafinil online pharmacies currently in the market, a handful stands out above the crowd. Three to be precise.
All these vendors come with glowing reviews from the modafinil community on Reddit. All three are also used personally and regularly by at least one active contributor to this site (how could we recommend them otherwise).
ModafinilXL is arguably the best online modafinil seller around. They’ve been around since 2010 and, up until recently, focused exclusively on the US. Targeting a single market allowed them to fine-tune their process down to perfection.
In December 2018, ModafinilXL took the formula which worked so very well for the US and expanded it to many other countries around the world (you can find the complete a little further down this page).
So how good is ModafinilXL? They’re basically the Amazon of modafinil, that’s how good they are.
The prices are incredibly competitive. They’re also the only modafinil seller to offer free samples. You get a choice of ten modafinil pills, ten armodafinil pills, or both.
The free samples are a strong indication of how confident ModafinilXL is in the quality of their product.
All orders are shipped out within 2 hours and arrive at your doorstep in a discreet package in as little as seven days. Shipping is free on all purchases over $80 and comes with tracking.
Responsive customer support is reachable via email. ModafinilXL’s website also has a comprehensive help center which answers every commonly asked question.
A full refund or free re-shipment guarantee backs all orders. If for whatever reason your package doesn’t arrive, you can choose to do either.
If you do get the product but are not satisfied with it, you can also get a 100% refund (something few modafinil sellers do).
Payment can be made by either credit card (Visa or Mastercard), or Bitcoin. Paying by Bitcoin will give you an industry best 35% discount on your order.
If you return to ModafinilXL in the future, you can also expect an additional $25 off (a coupon will be sent to you every time you take delivery of an order). You can stack both discounts for some substantial savings.
The folks at ModafinilXL really do like to keep their customers happy.
Another excellent modafinil vendor, BuyModa is wholly American owned. Operated by longtime industry veterans, they’re slightly newer to the scene. That, however, can be an advantage.
When you’re new, you can cherry pick what works for more established competitors and ignore what doesn’t. And BuyModa did precisely that.
To start, prices at BuyModa are some of the lowest you will find.
If you’re new to the world of modafinil, they also offer a discounted four product sample pack (which contains ten of each of Modalert, Modvigil, Artvigil, and Waklert). It’s a great way to figure out what works for you before ordering larger quantities.
Unlike ModafinlXL, though, there are no free samples.
Orders are processed and shipped within 24 business day hours. Once your package is on its way, you will receive a tracking number. You’ll also get automatic tracking updates throughout the process.
Shipping with BuyModa is always free. And, depending on where you live, you’re looking at a 7-12 day average delivery time.
Without a doubt, BuyModa has the best customer support in the business. They’re the only vendor to offer 24/7 live chat every day of the year. Their staff is responsive, friendly, and very much on the ball. If you prefer it, email is also available.
Anything you order from BuyModa is fully guaranteed. If you fail to receive your order, they will either re-ship it for free within 24 hours or return your money (your choice). After you receive your order, there’s also a 30-day satisfaction guarantee window during which you can request a refund.
BuyModa certainly stands behind the quality of the products they sell.
If you live in Canada (which has very stringent import regulations), you should also note that BuyModa is the only modafinil seller that will both ship and guarantee your orders. But, because there are a few extra hoops they have to jump through, all Canadian orders incur a $35 surcharge.
Accepted forms of payment include all major credit cards and Bitcoin. If you choose to pay with the latter, you’re entitled to 20% off your purchase price. If you buy more than $99 worth of product, you also receive a bonus of 30 free pills. And, if that wasn’t enough, you also get 20% more pills with all return purchases.
You can take advantage of all three deals at the same time.
Last but certainly not least is AfinilExpress. They may not have the prettiest of websites, but this is a modafinil seller that has been around for a long, long time. They’re one of the veterans of the industry.
Back in 2016, when ModafinilCat, the most popular online seller of modafinil at the time, closed their doors, AfinilExpress (and the now closed down DuckDose), is who they recommended as an alternative.
Given how much clout ModafinilCat had in the industry, that was a big vote of confidence. And AfinilExpress has not disappointed.
Prices are just as competitive as at ModafinilXL and BuyModa. A few products are a little more, a few a little less, but overall, very attractive.
Just like you can at BuyModa, AfinilExpress lets you order a sample pack containing ten pills of each product (Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, and Artvigil) if you’re not sure which version of modafinil or armodafinil will work best for you. There are, however, no free samples (that’s something only ModafinilXL offers).
Shipping is free, relatively quick and comes with tracking. Orders go out on work days only within 12 to 24 hours of payment.
Depending on your location, you can expect to receive your package in just over a week. Like with the other vendors, if your shipment gets lost or seized in transit, you’re entitled to either a free re-ship or your money back.
AfinilExpress customer support is available 24/7 via email and will usually respond within an hour or two.
For payment, AfinilExpress takes Visa, Mastercard, or Bitcoin. Paying with Bitcoin will give you a 20% discount on your order. Returning customers also get an additional 10% off. Though not as high as the discounts offered by ModafinilXL, these can still add up to some very big savings.
It’s not surprising that more and more people buy modafinil online. Doing it is quick, simple, and, most importantly, very inexpensive.
Armed with the information above, you too can enjoy all the wakefulness inducing and cognition-enhancing benefits this powerful substance brings, at a fraction of the cost.
