Where To Buy Modafinil Online in 2019

Last updated: April 28, 2019

Ever since ModafinilCat exited the scene three months ago, I get a study influx of inquiries from readers about where to buy modafinil online.

Some things to note about buying modafinil online:

  • Modafinil is a prescription drug, which means that if you’re from the United States, buying it online is technically illegal.
  • Despite the above fact, law enforcement rarely pursues someone if they buy modafinil online.
  • Filling a modafinil prescription at a pharmacy can be prohibitively expensive. So some people with prescriptions end up buying modafinil online.

Where Is Online Modafinil Sourced?

The vast majority of modafinil sold online is derived from HAB or Sun pharma.

These are reputable pharmaceutical companies based out of India. India does not have the same intellectual property protections as the United States, which allowed them to manufacture modafinil and armodafinil even when the drug patents were active. (As of this writing, both the armodafinil and modafinil patents have expired).


When buying modafinil online, you basically have four choices. Here they are:

  • Modalert (modafinil manufactured by Sun Pharma)
  • Modvigil (modafinil manufactured by HAB Pharma)
  • Waklert (armodafinil manufactured by Sun Pharma)
  • Artvigil (armodafinil manufactured by HAB pharma)

There are two “brands” (HAB and Sun pharma), and two different versions of the drug (modafinil and armodafinil). Modafinil and armodafinil are chemically distinct drugs but their effects are extremely similar.

Sun vs HAB Pharma Modafinil

What's the difference between Sun and HAB pharma?

  • Both companies are based in India
  • Sun has been manufacturing modafinil for decades; HAB is relatively new
  • Both manufacture pharmaceutical grade modafinil
  • Since Sun has a longer track record, they charge a premium compared to HAB (HAB is cheaper)
  • Some people swear that Sun pharma is superior, but as far as I can tell Sun just has the first mover advantage

Armodafinil vs Modafinil

Curious about the difference between modafinil and armodafinil? See this post.

The basic difference between modafinil and armodafinil is that modafinil is racemic and armodafinil is enantiopure. Put differently, modafinil is a 50/50 mixture of R-modafinil and S-modafinil. Conversely, armodafinil is pure R-modafinil (hence the name "armodafinil").

Armodafinil is theoretically a “cleaner” way to deliver the drug to your body, but difference is subtle and some people prefer modafinil.

Where To Buy Modafinil?

Remember how essentially all online modafinil is sourced from India?

That means that the products offered by most modafinil e-commerce sites are indistinguishable. All the ecommerce websites are dropshipping the same product!

So when you’re evaluating a vendor, you’re not concerned with product quality (because the products they sell are identical). However, you do want to make sure that the vendor is reliable.

For example, if your order is detained by customs, will the vendor be responsive via customer support? Do they offer a free replacement if something doesn’t go as planned?

There are basically five reliable modafinil vendors on the scene right now.

Here they are:

All of them are reliable. People vouch for them on Reddit and other online communities. All of them sell modafinil - though not all of them have all four flavors of modafinil we discussed in the previous section (Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, Wakvigil).

Protecting Your Credit Card Information

I've personally never had my credit card information stolen, but it can happen. Stolen credit card information usually happens due to a security breach or poor PCI compliance.

There are a few things you can do to protect your credit card (if you're concerned about it):

  • Pay with Bitcoin (most vendors offer a 15-30% discount if you use Bitcoin)
    • Bitcoin may seem inconvenient if you're never used it before, but once you acclimate to it, it's fantastic. You can get an account at Coinbase
  • Use a prepaid visa gift card, like the OneVanilla prepaid cards available at CVS
  • Apply to get the credit card Final, which lets you generate a single-use disposable credit card number for online transactions

Also remember that personal credit cards have excellent consumer protection. Consumers - not merchants - have the upper hand. When a transaction looks fishy, it's not difficult to initiate a chargeback.


Products Offered: Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, Artvigil

AfinilExpress is relatively new to the modafinil scene. However ModafinilCat vouched for them when they withdrew from the market which has led to their wide adoption. AfinilExpress accepts all major credit cards and bitcoin.

Read my full review of AfinilExpress here. Also, here are some AfinilExpress coupon codes.



Products Offered: Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, Artvigil

DuckDose has great branding. However a customer service email cannot easily be found on their website which is a point against them. That being said, DuckDose is widely regarded to be reliable vendor. Duckdose accepts mastercard and bitcoin.


Products Offered: Modalert, Modvigil

Modup doesn't have a sexy website but they've certainly built up a community around them. Check out the Modup Forum if you have specific questions about buying modafinil online.

Modup accepts mastercard, visa, and bitcoin. Their customer service email is [email protected].


Products Offered: Modalert, Modvigil, Waklert, Artvigil

Modapharma is on the pricier end of the spectrum, but I've talked to the owners and they are a friendly bunch.


Products Offered: Modalert, Waklert

I haven't personally ordered from ModafinilStar, but I know that Dan vouches for them so they must be good :)

My Verdict

All of the above-mentioned vendors are solid. Since they're all selling the same products, there are few differentiating feature behind customer support, order tracking, and overall reliability.

Here's a picture of lots and lots of Waklert you might enjoy.
