Lauflumide (also known as CRL-40,940 or commonly as Flmodafinil) is a eugeroic substance of the benzyhydryl chemical class that produces wakefulness and stimulation when administered. It is structurally similar to modafinil, which is used to enhance cognition, reduce fatigue, and increase alertness.

In medicine, eugeroic compounds are used in the treatment of certain sleeping disorders, such as excessive daytime sleepiness and narcolepsy. The prototypical and most widely used eugeroic is modafinil. Both modafinil and its enantiopure formulation, armodafinil, have been found to act as selective, weak, atypical dopamine reuptake inhibitors.[1][2] Unlike traditional stimulants such as amphetamine or methylphenidate, eugeroics are considered to have a low addictive and abuse potential.


Lauflumide is a synthetic molecule of the benzhydryl chemical class. Benzhydryl compounds are comprised of two benzene rings attached to a single carbon molecule. Lauflumide 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 a terminal amine group. Lauflumide is structurally analogous to fluorafinil, another benzhydryl eugeroic.

?? is Lauflumide also a racemat? no literature on that ??

?? can Modafinil/Pharmacology be used here? it would be an interesting base for research ??


Lauflumide is a dopamine reuptake inhibitor. It has a lower affinity for DAT receptors than modafinil.

Subjective effects

In comparison to traditional stimulants such as amphetamine, methylphenidate or cocaine, this compound produces an experience which is far less forceful, recreational and euphoric. It instead focuses on general wakefulness and motivation enhancement. 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 ☠.

Cognitive effects

Toxicity and harm potential

The long-term safety and effectiveness of Lauflumide as a drug of regular usage have not been determined.[4]

Anecdotal reports from those who have tried lauflumide suggest 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 worth noting, however, that as this compound is a commonly prescribed pharmaceutical, it is considerably less likely to have unpredictable adverse health effects than the typical research chemical. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices if choosing to use this substance.

Lethal dosage

The LD50 of lauflumide is higher than 1024 mg/kg in mice.[5]

Tolerance and addiction potential

Lauflumide has been reported to have some addiction potential

Tolerance to many of the effects of Lauflumide has been reported to develop after a short time (1-2 weeks) of consistent use.

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 - Lauflumide 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.[6] 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.[7]
