|Use||Promote wakefulness and alertness|
Eugeroics (originally, "eugrégorique" or "eugregoric"), also known as wakefulness-promoting agents and wakefulness-promoting drugs, are a class of drugs that promote wakefulness and alertness. They are used medically for the treatment of certain sleeping disorders, such as excessive daytime sleepiness and narcolepsy. They generally have a very low addictive potential.
The prototypical eugeroic is modafinil; other drugs in the class include adrafinil and armodafinil. Modafinil and armodafinil have been found to act as selective, weak, atypical dopamine reuptake inhibitors.
