    Modafinil is a central nervous system stimulant that treats sleep disorders. Modafinil is used under the drug names Modalert and Modvigil approved by the FDA. The intake of the stimulant releases certain chemicals in the brain named histamine, dopamine, and norepinephrine. It results in an increase in heart rate and can cause heart disease.

    It is more likely to occur frequently and widespread in patients with a history of cardiac arrest. In such a case it is very crucial to take Modafinil with caution. Modafinil affects the autonomic cardiovascular regulation and increase the heartbeat of the person causing adverse effect in the heart. Modafinil also increases the chances of high blood pressure which may lead to heart attack.
