Let’s talk Modafinil and smart drugs.
Trade Names: Provigil, Modvigil, Modalert
P.S: This is not medical advice, fam. Just entertainment and commentary. Never consume anything like Modafinil without consulting a medical professional first. Seriously.
It’s a smart drug, nootropic, cognitive enhancer. Originally, the stuff was developed as a pharmaceutical grade wakefulness agent to treat narcolepsy. Aka to keep people from falling asleep at inopportune times during the day.
Does Modafinil work?
Of course yeah. For the vast majority of individuals, It will work. Unless your IQ is too high 😉 Seriously, Modafinil offers more cognitive enhancement than just about anything on the market. You will be able to focus for hours on end without issue.
Just make sure you’re focusing on the right stuff. Block Facebook, Airbnb, etc. when taking it or you will waste the day.
The Vast Benefits of Modafinil:
-> 8-12+ hours of focus
-> Enhanced productivity
-> Increased overall output/production
-> Ideal for all-nighters
-> Enhanced mood
Modvigil is a steroid for focus. If you need insane focus for 1-2 days, provigil is your friend.
Who takes Modafinil?
Lots of people.
Basically, anyone who wants to get an edge over the competition has taken Modafinil.
Aka: -> Grad students
-> Online hustlers
-> Wall Street
…And even a former President of the United States)
Well, because it works!
If you take Modafinil, around 100-200 mg, you’ll find 8-12+ hours of insane focus almost a guarantee. You can get a lot of stuff done with 8-12+ hours of pure focus. Trust me.
Is Modafinil safe?
Well, I’m no doctor and this isn’t medical advice… But, there has been ZERO Modafinil-related deaths.
Sure, there are side effects, but it’s near impossible to overdose on modalert.
What about Modafinil side effects?
Of course, there are a few minor side effects.
Most users experience at least a few when taking the smart drugs.
I’m talking things like:
…But serious stuff? I haven’t found anyone with major issues from taking Modafinil. No hospitalizations. No overdosing. No death.
Personally, I really only had issues with nausea – if I didn’t eat enough. And sleeplessness – if I took provigil too late in the day, i.e. anytime in the afternoon. Oh, and make sure you stay hydrated on Modafinil.
Is Modafinil legal?
Well, that depends on where you live. In USA, the drug is Schedule IV. This means it’s a controlled substance that requires prescription from a doctor to purchase at a pharmacy. For first-world countries, this is only 100% legal way to purchase provigil
However… We live in grey areas on the ole’ Interwebs. You can buy provigil online without any actual legal risk. Do remember that I am no lawyer. This is not any type of advice. But no one has been arrested or charged with a crime for buying Modafinil online for personal use.
By personal usage, I mean not a ton of this stuff, i.e. anything under 500 pills. Zero issues. Zero actual arrests.
Well, except in Japan; (But that’s a different story). Just. Don’t. Do. It. …In most Asian countries.
Again, not a lawyer, but I broke it down further here.
How to get a prescription for Modafinil?
Well, that’s tough. Unless you have narcolepsy or sleep apnea. If you don’t and trust me, you don’t want to claim sleep apnea at a doctor’s office – as you’ll be paying big time for testing.
Then there’s one other option… Shift sleep disorder. Although, ordering online is so damn easy, that I’m not sure it’s worth the hassle.
Does Modafinil Mix Well With…
-> Working Out
Aka how to get more done, get better sleep, and make more money with the help of smart drugs.
So, let’s talk how to mix Modafinil into your lifestyle for fun and profit. First, only take Modafinil 1-2X a week – unless you have a prescription. Trust me.
Now, how does the stuff work when you’re…traveling? In my opinion, Modafinil is amazing for digital nomads and experts. There were many days I’d pop 200 mg of Modafinil and work for 15 or so hours. Then I’d sleep until 2 pm the next day. And then not work the rest of the week.
I’d only work one or two days a week while on the road. Then I’d simply enjoy my travels the rest of the time. All thanks to Modafinil and lifestyle design.
Sleeplessness is one of the worse side effects of Modafinil. To ensure you fall asleep when taking it, you must…
-> Take it before 10 am
-> Only 200 mg in the morning
-> No coffee after 4 pm
-> Eat a large, carb-heavy dinner
-> Use sleep aids
Boozing on the other hand… Not ideal when taking Modafinil. I wouldn’t ever plan to take 200 mg of Modafinil and then drink heavily. One or two drinks is fine. But the whole point of Modalert is to get things done. So why waste the precious heightened cognition drinking?!
What about mixing Modafinil and sex? Just. Don’t. Do. It. …Trust me when I say, I’m speaking from personal experience here and smart drugs are not ideal in the bedroom, fam.
That being said… Provigil is absolutely ideal when dealing with a hangover. Instead of not wanting to roll out of bed, you just eat some breakfast and then pop a pill.
In less than two hours, you’ll be unable to fall asleep for the next 12+ hours and you’ll be insanely focused. No hangover issues any longer. While this is highly effective, don’t do it too often. Modafinil on a hangover is like burning the candle on both ends. Eventually, it’ll catch up to you.
Some claim they love to take Modvigil and go to the gym. They find the stuff allows them to reach a better mind/muscle connection. I’ve always felt dehydrated when taking Modalert in the gym. Never really saw a benefit.
So I just take a day off from the gym when taking provigil. Plus, I’d rather spend the enhanced cognition working and making more cash than lifting.
The addiction and dependence liabilities of modafinil are relatively low. It shares biochemical mechanisms with addictive stimulant drugs, and some studies have reported it to have similar mood-elevating properties, although to a lesser degree. Monkeys will self-administer modafinil if they have previously been trained to self-administer cocaine. As such, modafinil is classified by the United States FDA as a schedule IV controlled substance, a category for drugs with valid medical uses and low but significant addiction potential.
And again, I’m not a doctor or a lawyer. Everything here is just entertainment. Always consult a medical professional before consuming anything like Modvigil.
