Armodafinil is an indirect dopamine receptor agonist. It bonds with the dopamine transmitter in the brain to act as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor, which blocks the action of your dopamine and produces psychoactive and euphoric effects. This leads to changes in mood, perception, thinking and feelings like that of other central nervous system (CNS) stimulants.
There is a possibility of armodafinil affecting your body by way of side effects, which are listed in the prescription facts above.
Although there are no definitive answers as to the long-term effects related to the use of armodafinil, there are some theories based on other prescriptions with similar effects. The theory is that long-term use of Nuvigil could permanently disrupt your sleep cycle, which could lead to non-restful sleep long term. There’s also a concern that long-term use could affect your memory.

As a rule, medications stay in your hair much longer than in your blood and urine, about 90 days, so inform your test administrator about all drugs (prescription and non-prescription) you are taking or have recently taken.
