Adrafinil Mode of Action
Adrafinil directly affects the central nervous system, but its exact mechanisms of actions have yet to be discovered. Animal research theorizes that Adrafinil works as an a1-adrenergic receptor agonist and affects amino acid release such as glutamate while decreasing the release of GABA (1).
Adrafinil is an eugregoric agent, meaning that it promotes wakefulness and alertness without amphetamine-like effects.
