Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Modafinil is a stimulant and improves concentration but it has an abuse potential if taken unregulated. If you already on modafinil then you may continue taking it but if you are not on regular modafinil then it would be wise not to use it increasing performance due to its abuse potential
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
