round white pill with j 18

I have a handful of small white round pills with J on one side and 18 on the other. I cannot find this exact configuration on any website. The closest I can find is J 10 or J 5, which are Donepezil. Based on other evidence I suspect it may be Modafinil but am unable to verify this. ## It is modafinil 100% I have a hundred or so of them Guaranteed ## What is the mg of them I have some also but have no idea ## J 18 is modafinil in the 100mg configuration. Cheers. ## Do you know which manufacturer makes them with J18 specifically. ## AURO PHARMA This is a Canadian Manufacturer ## Yes it’s Modafinil. I’m in Canada. And take it.
