Why Is Modafinil So Expensive?

The reasons for Modafinil being so expensive are-

  • The manufacturer Cephalon conducts various clinical trials to ensure the Nootropic is safe.
  • Due to initial drug marketing, Therupatic goods administration (TGA), and FDA approval.
  • Another factor for it being expensive is its anti-competitive practices. However, generic Modafinil costs 75% less than its brand versions.
