Having researched the shit out of this ‘wonder drug’, ‘smart drug’, ‘limitless pill’ and everything else the internet likes to hype it as, i will present to you my unbiased, non-placebo affected and carefully examined experience with this drug.
I will start with a brief background on what the drug is used for and how it works, i will keep it brief and limit all the ‘sciency’ shit because this is not a research report. Modafinil is a wakefulness promoting agent that treats disorders such as narcolepsy, excessive daytime sleepiness and ADHD sufferers with really shitty concentration. It is known to increases the uptake of serotonin and norepinephrine which in turn improves focus, enhances motivation and eliminates fatigue, tiredness and the need for sleep. It sounds very similar to amphetimines right?? It also has that strong appeal to university students looking for better alternatives to caffeine overdose and stealing the ADHD pills off siblings. In actual fact it is a different beast, while the benefits are similar it reacts much differently with the brain. It is not a direct stimulant but produces stimulant like effects. I read a very detailed research report on this beast that concluded studies provided further evidence that modafinil’s stimulant properties are the result of enhanced whole brain function rather than localised neural excitation (e.g Amphetamines, Cocaine, Meth etc). There is also very little potential for abuse, no comedown, very few side effects if any which are mild (dry mouth, slight loss of appetite, anxiousness if overstimulated) and sometimes none. The effects are very long lasting with peak performance for 2-3 hours and works for 10-12 hours.
I bought this drug online from an Indian Pharmacy which sounds shady as fuck but life is only worth living on the edge right? I only found very favourable reviews and multiple blog posts on reddit confirmed it to be legit, which was good enough for me. I don’t know why I’m justifying myself here. But just listen. This stuff is legit! When i first started using it i got hooked on the rush pretty quickly, i took it frequently because it made me feel like a supreme being. Whether i was at work, at the gym or doing chores around the house. It doesn’t matter what task i was doing, i felt like i was able to completely focus on any given task with no lapses in concentration, paying lots of attention to detail and feeling motivated to do whatever it is to the best of my ability. I haven’t been able to take a single nap or fall asleep on this drug, so it obviously works best to take in the morning and plough through the whole day with ease.
I don’t take it too often now, but i will use it on my days off when i have lots of chores and tasks to complete, it also boosts my creativity and allows me to do lots of writing without writers block. I can work on tasks i dont normally enjoy doing, and be in such a good state that i can do anything i set my mind to on any given day. It hasn’t been all roses unfortunately, i have made a stupid decision to take two before work once and i was properly pinging off my head which was very hard to contain. So i know not to do that. The one pill is very powerful already, i know now not to fuck with it and that even half of that dosage would still be very useful. Another mistake i have made is taking a pill mid-afternoon and not being able to get to sleep until 6am. Also when i have taken this drug when i am already in a state of nervousness or when i am very sleep deprived it absolutely amplifies the effects of anxiety. I was using this drug every day but it started to interfere with my ability to sleep, probably because it was staying in my system too long so i know now it works best when i take it occasionally and not in consecutive days i cycle on and off. This allows me not to rely on the drug and i know i can get through life perfectly without it, but i only take it when i want to get a boost and it does exactly that. I have always been interested in the potential for bio-hacking and that it is essentially the way of the future. Today it is perfectly normal in society for any form of enhancement physically or mentally. People always want to improve the way they look and the way they feel, and we have incredible technology that allows for that. People can change genders, completely whiten their teeth, hair treatments, steroids in body building and many many drugs people rely on to get through life whether it be painkillers, aspirin, anti biotics, mental health or whatever there are hundreds of thousands of drugs out there that can all affect the brain in different ways. So it is fascinating to look into the potential finding drugs that can significantly improve your desired brain function that works without all the drawbacks and addictions which are so common.
