Vixin® is a medication for reducing fatigue, and need for sleep as well as increasing effectiveness at work. The active ingredient is a compound of Orexin-С, also known as hypocretin-3 and synthetic peptides.

For the last few decades, this stimultant has been produced by one of the largest and oldest pharmaceutical corporations of the United Governments, RFP (Reinhardt Franz Pharmaceuticals). In the history of sleep inhibitors, Vixin® replaced Modafinil on the international pharmaceutical market, which failed to fully supersede Amphetamine as had been intended.

RFP’s many years of experience in producing drugs, together with significant evolutionary jumps in the development of synthetic biology in the 70's A.R. in Underearth have allowed RFP to fully eliminate even the few side effects Vixin® did have such as stimulating the development of Alzheimer's Syndrome. As of 132 A.R. Vixin® has been officially approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD). It is also used off-label to combat general fatigue not brought about by lack of sleep. For example, it is used for treating Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and as a complement to antidepressants (most frequently for individuals with significant fatigue not relived by antidepressants).

It is available in the form of inhalable capsules. Administration via inhalation reduces drug absorption time, which leads to the effects being felt almost immediately.

By acting on the monoamine neurons, Vixin® agitates the thalamus and cortex of the brain, thus creating a wakeful state in the patient. However, it also has an effect on the glymphatic system, preventing the deoxidation of brain cells that takes place during natural sleep. Herein lies the main danger of prolonged usage: though the user may not experience the desire for sleep and remain in an active, effective, wakeful state, the brain will begin to suffer from the buildup of toxins, as it has lost its ability to metabolize them.
