RE: Modafinil
So regarding docs and modafinil, I actually went to a sleep specialist. I had a long chat with her and she mentioned modafinil is fantastic for people who are chronically tired (narcoleptics and hypersomniacs in general).

Anyway, I asked about addictiveness and she said there was none. Moda truly seems like an amazing substance. People don't seem to get addicted to it at all.

I've been using modafinil for hypersomnia recently. Keeping track of results and they seem positive. I'll post them in a month or so. But for me, I have to agree with Mehor. It might be because I'm genuinely tired all the time, but moda doesn't do anything for me except make me less tired.

He said NA is full of doctors, lawyers, wall st types, etc, he said there isnt much difference from these or meth, doing bumps, etc, he said there really is not much difference at all from what he's seen.

This is one doctors opinion. He is my GP and a really smart guy who errs on the side of natural remedies and chinese medicine. I want to go find another opinion, but thought I would share here.

Ya they call these gateway drugs, but I call that bullshit.

Ultimately, if someone wants to go the hard way, they'd go that whether the gateway existed or not.

If you can control yourself and be responsible, there shouldn't be an issue, re: modafinil.

RE: Modafinil
I tried Modafinil for the first time yesterday. It was ok, but I can see how it would be great if I took it at the right time or when I had a ton of work to do on little sleep.

I woke up around 4 am - this is my regular time, I'm an extreme morning person - and took 100 mg modafinil, half of a 200mg pill.
I normally have a ton of energy in the morning so I didn't really notice a difference for a while. I usually screw around on the internet for 30 minutes before I start working and this morning wasn't any different.
I started working on a weather derivative pricing model around 4:30. Everything felt normal. By 6 am, I noticed that I had more energy than I normally do at this time and my concentration was better. I'd say my normal energy is 95% at this time and my normal concentration is about 70%. On modafinil, I was 100% on both. I ended up working on this model until around noon. I rarely work that long on one thing, especially something that doesn't really benefit me or my family. I was building this model for a start up that I've been doing some pro-bono consulting work for. If the start up ends up pursuing one of my ideas and raises additional capital, then I can probably arrange a paid consulting/advisory position as a decent paying side hustle with minimal time commitments e.g. $20-50k per year for 8-10 hrs of work per wekk on stuff that I find very interesting anyway. But that's a big if.

Anyway, by 3 pm the effects were wearing off. After it wore off, I felt completely normal, just as I would at the same time on a normal day.

Energy - B - Modafinil definitely increased my energy but I'm a pretty high energy guy before 3 pm anyway
Concentration - A+ - Modafinil definitely improved my concentration beyond what's normal for me.
Intelligence - F - I wasn't any smarter than I normally am, just better able to concentrate my intelligence on one task.

All in all, I would recommend modafinil to other people but think it's best to use when you really need an extra kick.

I've got the dick so I make the rules.

RE: Modafinil
I was just about to ask.
has anyone tried to go to their doctor to get a prescription.

with great insurance, it would probably be cheaper for me to get than some grey area online market.


But I wanna know how most doctors feel about this stuff.

because of my average work,I had a odd sleep schedule and I actually end up napping throughout the day between my full schedule.

I feel like a prescription modafinil would be reasonable for the energy levels I need as opposed to experimenting with research versions and alternatives

I know yours is an old post but modafinil isn't addictive at all, at least in my experience. I still have 80 pills of modalert and 3 of waklert lying around and I haven't taken one in weeks.

--
That issue aside, one of the mistakes I think I've done when taking this is that I've always taken it in the morning, a few minutes after waking up. If the drug wears off in 8-10 hours then surely it's better to take it around midday or so.

There's a generic precursor of modafinil called adrafinil that you can get. No script necessary. awakebrain.com has it. Quite similar.

RE: Modafinil
Ive tried adrafinil.
It doesn't seem to have the same effect as what has been noted by others.
I think it has something do with the way that it is metabolized. It doesnt hit me full force.

I also think I may be one of those people that simply don't process it.
Caffeine from drink to pill form also doesnt have the same effect on me...not the same way other people swear by it.

I almost think caffeine is just becomes a fixation addiction..after a while..people just assume they need coffee of the morning and cant function without it.
...and fuck those people that use the excuse of not having their coffee as a reason for being annoying in the morning

I got a legit prescription from my doctor for Nuvigil. It was pretty simple, I told her that travel for work often had me driving for 10-12 hours at a time, and I was worried about falling asleep at the wheel.

She recommended something, I don't recall exactly, but I just said well, my friend told me about this drug modafinil, what are your thoughts on that? She had no problems with it and wrote me a script on the spot.

With my insurance I was paying $30 for a month's supply, but I've been cutting the pills in half and using that dosage instead. It'd be a good deal even if I didn't though, I love the stuff.

Did you get the 150's or are you chopping the 75's? I want to try armodafinil next, since I heard the effects are a little stronger than modafinil(which I take daily).

The 150's. The first few times I tried an entire dose it was waaaaay too much for me.

Half a pill is perfect, although I've noticed that if I take it several days in a row the effects seem to wane. I handle this by alternating the Nuvigil days with caffeine days (either preworkout prior to lifting or a cup or two of black tea in the morning).

RE: Modafinil
Reporting my experience so far...Inspired to try this because of this thread- love this forum for these type of threads.

My experiences pretty much match what others have reported, increased focus and energy. Have not really taken not of the specifics but it makes a big difference. As a result of having more energy and focus I more inspired and generally more positive.

I have been splitting the 200mg tabs and half dosing it, works out cheaper than buying 100mg tabs. For me this seems pretty good. Moma I'm interested to see how you feel after dropping 200mg!

It's early days since I've tried it maybe 3 times. But I've only noticed one possible draw back, of which I'm not sure if its even related to the Modafinil... A couple times I have experienced a seemingly random feeling of nervous energy and kind of anxiousness, felt quite out of no-where and didn't last long. Anyone else experiencing anything similar?

For anyone who wants a reiable place to get them mail order, I used Pharmacy Geoff (UK). They seem to be decent quality (they definitely work), no problems recieving them here in UK but the postage did take awhile. I'm pretty sure they ship most countries too.

Moma's Modafinil Review
I had a slight headache all day from ingestion. I felt jittery and I felt sleepy all day. I didn't sleep cos of my slight headache...my heartbeat felt like it was racing a tad.

My focus wasn't there at all. A lot of my energy was there trying to stay balanced throughout my work day.

All in all, that's the last Moda tab I'm popping..I'm more tired than I ever was.

Different folks for different folks. We all have different biochemistry.

Don't let it discourage the rest of you lot from trying it.

thepharmacyexpress.vu is who I use. They are based in Vanuatu and use a third party fulfillment company. Look them up on the pharmacy reviewer. Great prices, but it takes 3-4 weeks to receive your order. Choose the alternative payment method(discounted price) and send a money order to the processor in Georgia. Let me know if you have any other questions.

RE: Modafinil
I have tried armodafinil. If you are going to take it take it in the morning. Also i only ever took half a tablet its strong stuff. It keeps you alert and also once you start focusing on something its hard to lose focus. So choose a good activity dont play video games or something because you will literally play them all day.

I dont like how people compare drugs to limitless because it overhypes them. If you want to get something done you have to change the way you think not rely on drugs.

Having said that i have almost a full packet left so if anyone in australia is interested when i return from travel in a month i will sell it to you for $20+post. I had paid $100 overpaid..

RE: Modafinil
Here in Turkey it´s without prescription. Yesterday I had bought some guarana burn 60 from glc which made me much more alert and less sleepy, didn´t need a nap through the day. I am going to order modafinil here. Sounds quite cheap for 30 dollar generica. Maybee I can become a better worker bee.

Right, it´s called Modawake. Most pharmacies don´t have it in the shop and many don´t even know what that is so I ordered it thorough the pharmacy.

Maybe I got lucky. I went to a pharmacy, and they looked it up on the computer..they didn't have it in house so he called another pharmacy and had a dude one a scooter drop it off from another pharmacy.

I thought things like that were common place

Anyone here have any positive experiences with adrafinil? I don't really experience anything on it, at least not the way I do with Adderall. I can't figure out a way to get modafinil that isn't illegal, but Im not sure if it is even worth it anyhow.
