There are a variety of drugs in the market to treat the same disease. It becomes very difficult for us to decide which one to choose. If we go to the doctors then they prescribe us medicine to treat the disease. Some may decide to consult more than one doctor at a time. A different doctor may prescribe a different brand of the same medicine. There might be a slight difference in the composition but the job of both the drugs may be the same. Due to the difference in the composition the drug may have a slightly different effect on the condition.
Why do different doctors prescribe different medicine to treat the same disease? This could be due to the reason that some doctors believe that some composition works better than the other. Hence different drugs for the same problem. However, different individuals react differently to different drugs. Some may find that some components in a drug suit them better than others. This is the reason why some people say that some doctors prescribed medicines suit more than other doctors. Sometimes the difference in the composition causes side effects in individuals. Hence, they may prefer a certain brand of the drug which does not cause such problems.
Let us take the example of painkillers. We normally take painkillers to combat pain, fever, and some other condition such as inflammation. Now there are several brands of painkillers in the market. There is paracetamol, non -inflammatory steroid drugs, an opioid. Depending on the condition of the patient doctors may prescribe the drug. If the person has fever and pain doctors may prescribe paracetamol. On the other hand, if he has fever along with inflammation in some body parts then he may be prescribed ibuprofen. For acute joint pain, he may be prescribed codeine. If a person has an allergic reaction to say ibuprofen then doctors may prescribe a substitute. So, we see that our preference for a drug depends on how we react to that particular drug.
For enhancing the cognitive abilities in individuals people take either Waklert or Modalert. Both the drugs do the same job but have a slightly different composition.
Comparison between Waklert and Modalert
Both the drugs
have the same effect on individuals. That is, they help in wakefulness. They both offer cognitive benefits to individuals. In short, if a person is looking for a drug that can increase concentration, focus, and improved memory then he can use this drug. The difference in both the drugs lies in the composition. Modalert contains Modafinil as the key ingredient while Waklert contains Armodafinil in its composition. Waklert comes in 150mg tablet and has to be taken once a day with water with or without food. The dosage of Modalert is 200mg single tablet that has to be taken once a day.
Hence, we see that 150mg of Waklert is equivalent to 200mg of Modalert. Waklert may have a slow effect at first but later blends more quickly in the blood. Modalert, on the other hand, blends more slowly and so the users of Modalert claim a low number of side effects. It is ultimately on the user to decide which drug is better as the reaction of one individual may be different from the other.
