Armodafinil Australia is a very effective psycho-stimulant that helps us to improve various disorders, wakefulness, narcolepsy, apnea or hypopnea syndrome, etc. This pill is taken only when non-drug methods and approaches have not been useful enough to cure the disorders above. In Australia, Modafinil has already been used for the same set of indications. But the difference is that R and S isomers in a 1:1 mixture ratio makes up Modafinil, and only R isomer makes up the Armodafinil. For both of them, the mechanism of action is unknown to doctors and scientists.
