Modapro as an effective stimulator for weight loss

Modapro: general information.

Modapro is one of the new stimulant drugs recently developed by Lafon Laboratories in France. It is a popular psycho stimulant used for the treatment of narcolepsy (uncontrollable attacks of deep sleep), fatigue, and unreasonable sleepiness. Also there were conducted some studies for its usage in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, severe depression and the treatment of attention disorders. The drug belongs to a number of medications famous as evgeroics created to enhance focus. It is an agonist alpha 1 of adrenergic receptors; increases the allocation of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid).

The usage of Generic Modapro as a psycho stimulant indicates that it compares favorably from amphetamines. It practically does not cause addiction syndrome which is also one of the advantages. In the US there were conducted studies during which patients received either a dose of 4 mg per kilogram of body weight of Modapro or placebo. The study was conducted among 15 male athletes. Three hours after dosing, subjects were working on a bicycle ergo meter with a load of 85% to complete exhaustion.

Those who tried the medication could do in an average 30% longer on this load than the ones from placebo group.   A typical dose of preparation for both men and women is in the area of 100-400mg taken 2-3 hours before start of the competition. A good idea would be a gradual increase in dosage of 50-100mg to the optimum level. This drug can be used in almost any kind of sport, but it is often used where there is required endurance. It can also work well on athletes who repeat many times during the competition short explosive exercises such as weightlifting.

In some countries, the drug is approved for the treatment of sleep disorders. On the illegal market it is known as "zombie", popular in nightclubs, and for students that are abusing them in preparing for exams. The military dreams of fighters who cannot sleep for days, keeping all the mental and physical abilities. As the drug is often used off-label, you can easily buy Modapro at any drug store of the USA, Australia and Europe. You can also order Modapro online at reliable online pharmacies.

Weight loss.

Studies of the drug (even by people with a healthy weight) suggest that it affects the appetite and weight loss. All the studies of Modapro in the database of Medline, occurring within one month or longer and informing about weight changes, show that consumers of the drug experience weight loss compared to placebo. In 2008, one small research on people doing simulated shift work individually informed about the result as 18% decrease in total caloric intake on 200 mg a day, and a 38% decrease on 400 mg a day.

In experimental studies, the effect of reducing of the appetite caused by Modapro looks similar to amphetamines effect, but, in contrast to amphetamines, drug dose causing a decrease in food intake does not quite enhance the pulse frequency. Also in the article that was published in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry there was a case of a person with a weight of 280 pounds (127 kg.) with a body mass index 35.52, who lost 40 pounds (18 kg.) during the year of the treatment by Modapro (up to body mass index 29.59). The authors concluded that it is necessary to conduct controlled studies of placebo on the usage of the medication as a means for reducing weight. At the same time, by Cephalon in 2000 there was filed US patent on the use of the drug as a means for increasing appetite.

Modapro is one of the best stimulants helping in treatment of weight loss and different sleep disorders: the usage of the drug is highly recommended.
