What is Modafinil?

Oral Modafinil: Side Effects, Dosage and LegalityAlso known under the names and Modalert, Provigil. It’s a class of barbiturates which blew up after the film ‘Limitless’. Using a smart drug called NZT-48 the user manages to workout constantly at a breakneck pace, learn, remember and act with superhuman effectiveness.

Modafinil does help you to do some of these things, though the boost is more subtle. It allows you to continue working through hunger, sleepiness and boredom by giving you a constant sense of wakefulness. As a consequence, you are able to maintain a steadier stream of focused consciousness.

How to take Modafinil

It’s taken as an oral drug. The standard 200 mg pill is soft, so you can break it into quarters or further to distribute the dose. We recommend starting at the lowest possible dose and working your way up to 200 mg. You might not need the entire pill!

Modafinil is a favourite of students, night shift workers and anyone looking for a short term solution to sleep deprivation. If you’re in need of focus, keep in mind that if you use Modafinil for revision, you should also use it for your exam. This is known as ‘state-dependent memory’.

  • Key Points: Consistency is the key to learning and retrieval.
  • Avoid too high a dosage as this can cause a high heart rate.
  • Take it easy as Modafinil use can be dependence inducing. You’ll keep wanting to take it to maintain the sensation of alertness!
  • We recommend using it rarely, for special moments of need like the Felix Felicis.
Q: Can you snort Modafinil?
A: We really don’t recommend you try snorting Modafinil. There are no advantages, and you’ll get a chalky nose. If you want faster absorption, try putting it under your tongue. Note that this results in a higher rate of absorption. If you don’t want to be buzzing, then try a half dose first.

Stacking Nootropics – Modafinil

Stacking refers to using different nootropic drugs synergistically. Modafinil combines like Boltron with a little Fish Oil and Ashwaghanda. This stack keeps you calm, by including choline supplementation to avoid the Modafinil headache. This occurs when brain choline levels get too low. Remember to refuel the tank and take care of yourself whilst studying and working.

A key principle of drug use and of stacking is balance. It’s not about using lots of a given substance, but rather about combining them to manifest an effective sensation, or a desire to work.
