What is Fladrafinil?
Fladrafinil (CRL-40,941), marketed in France and elsewhere in Europe under the trade name Olmifon, is a wakefulness-promoting agent closely related to adrafinil and modafinil. Fladrafinil is an actual synthetic derivative of adrafinil. Compared to its relatives it is far stronger and is commonly used to relieve excessive sleepiness and improve attention. Compared to adrafinil, fladrafinil reduces aggressiveness as shown in studies on animals. Fladrafinil is more effective than adrafinil and is about 4x more potent than adrafinil.
