> Adrafinil is believed to serve as an alpha-1 adrenoceptor agonist. The improved learning seen with it may also result from enhancement of vigilance due to facilitation of noradrenergic transmission in the central nervous system. Adrafinil stimulates the noradrenergic post-synaptic receptors and thereby boost alertness, activity and energy. --That's all I could find.

Sal,

1) Is this currently available in the US?
2) I have heard something about it being a new alternative drug for ADHD. Is this true, is it effective?
3) Given its pharmaco profile, I wonder if it would be a great augmentor for AD's like Remeron (to reverse drowsiness/dizziness), or atypical AP's that make people feel dizzy that respond well otherwise. (reverse orthostatic hypotension)
Thoughts??

Mitch
