Vilafinil is a psychostimulant of the new generation. Modafinil is a drug derived from a substance called Adrafinil (Adrafinil) developed in 1970 by the French company Lafon Laboratories.
The drug belongs to the class of nootropics. Nootropics, also known as neurometabolic stimulators — are means that have a direct activating effect on learning, improve memory and mental activity, as well as increase the resistance of the brain to aggressive influences.
