Countdown To Christmas!

Hi Guys,

 

just wondering how people take modafinil. I have been using modalert now and again, I seem to find its benefits last a little over 24 hrs into the next day (easier to wake up etc), then I find I sleep a greater deal for a few days (more than usual) until I get back to 'baseline' 

 

do most people use it every day, take the weekends off or just now and again? After using it for a while does anyone have the increased sleep requirements? And if so how long do they last?

Thanks

I've been taking it every day.  Because I have the patience of a gnat, I can't just wait for sleep to come so I take an antihistamine or if needed a zopi to start the process of winding down to sleep.

Dang @DippityDoo sounds good I just looked it up. I think this might be the one and only drug I have not consumed in my lifetime. It sounds good to be awake and have more energy in the day, but would it work against the xanax I take?

I have not noticed that M0d@nafil makes me feel more awake than usual and I'm not aware of any feeling of increased physical energy.  I get more physical energy and wakefulness from caffeine than I do from M0da.  For me, the benefit is a very subtle but undeniable increase in mental focus and ability to stay on-task.  This is especially noticeable when writing, researching/reading.  I'm able to think and focus more clearly for much longer periods of time and that increased focus allows me to complete lengthy reads and writings that I might not have otherwise.

I don't think I feel any differently physically with M0da, but I definitely notice an improvement in mental clarity and focus with it.  As with all good things, though, particularly chemical enhancements, the benefits of M0da may come to an end after a while.  Hopefully there's no withdrawal in the classic sense if/when it no longer provides noticeable benefit.

EDIT TO ADD:  As far as cancelling out a benzo effect, I can't speak specifically to Xanny, but a mild benzo such as @tivan still provides relaxation and sleep for me.

@DippityDoo my god, I'm going to get some. I have never been diagnosed with ADHD or anything but I always have a hard time staying focused. Even simple things like cleaning me house I can't do, I'll start on one room and quit and forget what I was doing and leave it left undone and go on to my next task and do the same. I have difficulty concentrating on one thing at a time. It all becomes overwhelming for me so then I get anxiety and pop a Xanax. God, it sounds like a god send to me, because I never get much done because of I can stay on focus, Thanks so much or explaining it to me. Just having clarity and focus would be such a benefit for me. Thanks for telling me how it helps you because I swear I have the same problems, it definitely sounds like I could benefit from it!

Focus is the main reason why I use them, having to write a report or something like that. I have noticed that different brands seem to 'feel' different.... 

Have got some armodafinil so going to try that and see how different it is....

I always liked armodafinil a little better ! I forgot that i switched to that exclusively when I was taking moda.

I have to say, even though I have only tried armodafinil for a couple of days (75mg) it does seemingly have less side effects, however I was taking 200mg of modafinil so not quite a straight comparison (will have to give it another go with 100mg)

I love modafinil and took it daily for years. Increased my focus and energy and over time (likely as I built tolerance), it didn't affect my sleep (not nearly as much as a typical stim).

i stopped taking it after getting a huge order from the now-defunct modafinil cat. While taking this I was using a implanted birth control and got pregnant ?? and found out later that modafinil has this effect on estrogen-progesterone birth control methods. Just a word to the wise ! 

Also this might be TMI but your urine should smell different when you take any form of moda (hey it alerted me more than once that I had taken bunk tabs!)

Lol. Great story. I have taken Ritalin, Adderal, Vyvanse, Dexidrine, Concerta, you name it. Now without insuracr for another month, I'm trying modalert. I just wanna be able to focus. Sounds like it worked for you! Hope it does for me too!

You may give armodafinil a shot. It works better than modafinil for some people (including me).

I have to say that while moda would be brilliant to help you finish the task of cleaning the house ( I've sorted my house top to bottom many a time on it ) for me it has the side effect of massively increasing anxiety a few hours after taking. So my point is, keep those x@n@x to hand, as they help calm the jitters if you are prone to anxiety already. I'd be interested to know if you found it to be the same for you

I don't know about taking them at exactly the same time )if they work against each other or not) but I find once I ve got the bulk of my work done on the moda, x@n@x prolongs the buzz and calms the jitters. If I take the x@n@x too soon after the moda it would curtail productivity, yes

Interesting..  Always felt armoda was a bit too strong for me, in comparison...  brought on the jittery/uneasy feeling.  Started to half them, but still liked the original moda better.

I find Moda very helpful when needing to cut back on other candies like ohpeahs or sewmahs...by "cutting back" - sometimes if I have not brought enough of those things with me for a long day , but I do have 100mgs of Modah types, that can certainly help offset it by making me stay focused, energetics, and not as sensitive to muscle pain.  I, for one, find that Moda can help me stay awake AND be more energetic, similar to stims, but with less visible anxiety (shakiness and jitters). Some time ago, I tested it against Addies and Ephedrs and I think Moda is preferable for my needs (getting stuff done and enjoying mental alone time without wasting it!) but that might not be what other people wants or need.
