N-Methyl-4,4'-difluoro-modafinil (also known as N-Methylbisfluoromodafinil, Dehydroxyfluorafinil, and Modafiendz)[1] is an obscure nootropic of the benzhydryl class with no history of research. Although it is closely related on a structural level to adrafinil and modafinil, neither a pharmacological nor a safety-profile similarity should be assumed.


N-methyl-4,4-difluoro-modafinil, or 2-{[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methyl]sulfinyl}-N-methylacetamide, is a synthetic molecule of the benzhydryl class. Benzhydryl compounds are comprised of two benzene rings attached to a single carbon molecule. N-methylbisfluoromodafinil contains a fluorine group bound to each benzene ring at R4. It is classified as a sulphinyl benzhydryl molecule, as it also contains a sulphinyl group, a sulfur molecule double-bonded to an oxygen molecule, attached to the carbon of the benzhydryl group. From this sulfur group at R2, an acetamide group is bound at its free carbon through a carbonyl group to an amine group. This terminal amine group is N-substituted with a methyl chain. N-methylbisfluoromodafinil is structurally similar to other benzhydryl stimulants modafinil and fluorafinil; it is the bis-fluoro-N-methyl analog of modafinil.

N-methylbisfluoromodafinil is the bis-fluoro-N-methyl analogue to modafinil; it contains two fluorine groups bound to each benzene ring at carbon 4 and an OH- (hydroxyl) group bound to the amine of modafinil.

You can help by adding to it.

This compound has not been subject to any research, besides one paper discussing its chemical properties.[2] Even though a pharmacological similarity with modafinil can be assumed, pharmacological similarity to adrafinil and CRL-40,941 seems more likely.[2] This compound should not be assumed safe in any case, until further, though unlikely, research is conducted.

Subjective effects

Disclaimer: The effects listed below cite the Subjective Effect Index (SEI), an open research literature based on anecdotal user reports and the personal analyses of PsychonautWiki contributors. As a result, they should be viewed with a healthy degree of skepticism.

It is also worth noting that these effects will not necessarily occur in a predictable or reliable manner, although higher doses are more liable to induce the full spectrum of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become increasingly likely with higher doses and may include addiction, severe injury, or death ☠.

Physical effects

Toxicity and harm potential

The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational N-methylbisfluoromodafinil use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dosage is unknown. This is because N-methylbisfluoromodafinil has very little history of human usage. Anecdotal evidence from people who have tried N-methylbisfluoromodafinil within the community suggests that there do not seem to be any negative health effects attributed to simply trying this substance at low to moderate doses by itself and using it sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed). It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.

Tolerance and addiction potential

The chronic use of N-methylbisfluoromodafinil can be considered as mildly addictive with a low potential for abuse and it does not seem to be capable of causing psychological dependence among certain users due to its lack of euphoria or recreational effects. If addiction has developed, cravings and withdrawal effects may occur if a person suddenly stops their usage.

Tolerance to many of the effects of N-methylbisfluoromodafinil develops with prolonged and repeated use. This results in users having to administer increasingly large doses to achieve the same effects. After that, it takes about 3 - 7 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 1 - 2 weeks to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption).[citation needed] N-methylbisfluoromodafinil presents cross-tolerance with all modafanil analogs, meaning that after the consumption of N-methylbisfluoromodafinil all modafinil analogs will have a reduced effect.[citation needed]

Dangerous interactions

Disclaimer: Psychoactive substances that are reasonably safe to use on their own can suddenly become dangerous or even life-threatening when combined with other substances. The following list includes some known dangerous interactions (although it is not guaranteed to include all of them).

Independent research (e.g. Google, DuckDuckGo) should always be conducted to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe to consume. Some of the listed interactions have been sourced from TripSit.

  • 25x-NBOMe & 25x-NBOH - Members of the 25x family are highly stimulating and physically straining. Combinations with stimulants should be avoided due to the risk of excessive stimulation. This can result in panic attacks, thought loops, seizures, increased blood pressure, vasoconstriction, and heart failure in extreme cases.
  • Alcohol - Alcohol can be dangerous to combine with stimulants due to the risk of accidental over-intoxication. Stimulants mask the sedative effects of alcohol, which is the main factor people use to assess their degree of intoxication. Once the stimulant wears off, the depressant effects of alcohol are left unopposed, which can result in blackouts and respiratory depression. If combined, one should strictly limit themselves to only drinking a certain amount of alcohol per hour.
  • DXM - Combinations with DXM should be handled with extreme care due to DXM's effects on serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake. This can lead to panic attacks, hypertensive crisis, or serotonin syndrome with stimulants that increase levels of serotonin (MDMA, methylone, mephedrone, etc.). Monitor blood pressure carefully and avoid strenuous physical activity.
  • MDMA - The neurotoxic effects of MDMA may be increased when combined with other stimulants. There is also a risk of excessive heart strain.
  • MXE - Combinations with MXE may dangerously elevate blood pressure and increase the risk of psychosis.
  • Stimulants - N-Methylbisfluoromodafinil can be potentially dangerous in combination with other stimulants like cocaine as they can increase one's heart rate and blood pressure to dangerous levels.
  • Tramadol - Tramadol lowers the seizure threshold.[3] Combinations with stimulants may further increase this risk.
  • MDMA - The neurotoxic effects of MDMA may be increased when combined with other stimulants.
  • MAOIs - This combination may increase the amount of neurotransmitters such as dopamine to dangerous or even fatal levels. Examples include syrian rue, banisteriopsis caapi, and some antidepressants.[4]
  • Cocaine - This combination may increase strain on the heart.

Legal status


This legality section is a stub.

As such, it may contain incomplete or wrong information. You can help by expanding it.

N-methylbisfluoromodafinil is currently a gray area compound within most (if not all) parts of the world. This means that it is not known to be specifically illegal within any country, but people may still be charged for its possession under certain circumstances such as under analog laws and with intent to sell or consume.

  • United Kingdom - It is illegal to produce, supply, or import this substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act, which came into effect on May 26th, 2016.[5]
