Hi folks,

I've done a fair bit of research and am pretty aware of what to expect from this 'wonder drug'.

On the other hand, I am also interested in hearing forum members who have used it in the past or who are still using Modafinil.

Can you please elaborate on your experience?

Thanks!

I've never used it, but let's say you're using it to be more energized and alert throughout the day. Is this anything that can't be solved by regular exercise, and a healthy diet? A cup of coffee can give you a boost as well.

My current diet is a pile of crap. Plus my sleeping pattern is all over the place. I am aware that I should fix these two before even considering Moda.

I kind of sound like a guy who has never hit the gym and is considering a steroid stack so he could get shredded before Xmas lol.

Yeah you're feeling tired all the time, get a handle on your diet and sleep, and you'll notice an improvement. Exercise is also a good way to regulate your sleep as you'll feel tired late in the day.

Lol it's alright, today we have pills for everything.

Exercise and diet are KEY.

A book that I would recommend is You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises by Mark Lauren.

Short and to the point, with a lot of good nuggets on healthy eating, working out simply, and body transformation.

Here is one of my favorite passages from the book:


Your real home is not your apartment or your house or your city or even your country, but your body. It is the only thing you, your soul and your mind, will always live inside of so long as you walk the earth. It is the single most important physical thing in this world you can take care of.

We have a choice: To take care of ourselves, or to simply let time make us worse. And it is right now, at this moment, not later, that we must make this decision. Most people in this world choose to lose. They drag themselves through a second-rate life, overweight and under-energetic. They just let time take its toll. Their waistline increases and their height decreases as they get older and their backs hurt and hunch. Eventually their mobility becomes limited. And they meet their maker well before they should.

Then there are the others, the minority who decide to really, truly do something about their health. They exercise, and they watch what they eat, not obsessively, only just enough. They have an understanding of nutritional basics, and workout 20 - 30 minutes a day, 4 - 5 times a week--less than 1.2% of their time--because that is all they will ever need. They meet life's obstacles with physical, mental, and spiritual strength. They care about how they look, and they look good. They thrive on the energy exercise gives them every day. How it washes away so many of the bad things in life--depression, anxiety, nervousness, tension, boredom, impatience. It lets them think easily and clearly. They know how much worse their lives would be if they did not exercise, so they simply don't let that happen. They are in control, not their excuses.


Screw the pill. Healthy eating paired with exercise is the perfect medication. Make fitness a priority and reap the life-changing benefits. The time is NOW.

Use to use it a lot, stopped for about a year and actually bought some about a month ago to try again.

About an hour after taking it, you feel really awake, and it always puts me in a really good mood. The effects for me lasted about 7/8 hours, and I always go into a bit of a slump after the effects wear off. I do believe that your body gets use to it though, I stopped taking it because eventually I was barely feeling any effect from it at all. I would definitely recommend Modafinil, but use sparingly, only when you really feel that you need it.

As always, be careful. Make sure you get it from a legitimate distributor/manufacturer. If you start feeling any negative side effects, stop taking it right away. There hasn't been a lot of substantial research into Modafinil or many other smart drugs, we're not sure of the long term prolonged effects, and we don't know if it is safe to take regularly. So, you need to appreciate that if there are any negative effects, whether now or in the future, you are completely liable for them.

Hi ....Don't know anything about this gear ...."0"......

However, I was once extremely unfit.
To rectify the situation, I took out a discounted 3 month membership at the local swimming pool. Very slowly I improved my fitness levels. I got my inspiration one morning there from an old boy who had stints in his heart and only one functional lung. He had started like me unfit and slowly rebuilt his body from the inside out. He became a vegetarian and adopted a new healthy living lifestyle.

You would have to see this guy folks !

This is my take on Human longevity

1/ Exercise. (with exercise / fitness you can have energy to fix the mindset)

2/ Mindset. (with a clear mindset you can have drive to clean up your diet)

3/ Diet (with the proper diet you can have good health)

4/ Good health ( with good health you will live long enough for Peter Diamandis to figure out how you can live to 130 years. )

I wouldn't risk it honestly. Poorly researched, cardiovascular abnormalities, organ failure(wow) and I've even read somewhere about a smart drug which I'm pretty sure was modafinil that caused diabetes. It may interact with insulin levels, which would make sense since glucose is the primary source of brain fuel.

Maybe modafinil tinkers with these biological processes that are oh so vital for us? Who knows.

The upside? A little bit of focus and alertness. That's it. Nothing a self-kick to your own bum wouldn't help.

Comparing to every other drug the risks here are quite mysterious and apparently come in many different shapes and forms. A wander into the unknown and the stake is my health. How thrilling!

My current diet is a pile of crap. Plus my sleeping pattern is all over the place. I am aware that I should fix these two before even considering Moda.

Moda will be a band-aid & a crutch until you fix the real problems you noted above. I used it for about 4 months when I couldn't figure out why I was hit with extreme, extreme fatigue suddenly... like, taking a 4 hour nap in the middle of the day & still going to bed early & exhausted fatigue...

I finally figured out it was nickel poisoning from my braces (yeah, ridiculous, I know). I used moda as a tool to get by. It wasn't amazing or ridiculously incredible, but I did feel much more alert/awake while using it. I was very awake, but also aware that it was artificial -it's weird... it was like I could tell it was masking the tiredness, I could still feel the fatigue behind it... but I knew it was a crutch to get by on until I could figure out my issues. Once I addressed the health issues, my fatigue went away & now I don't use it, as I don't want to be that amped up artificially -I try & tune in to what my body tells me on it's own & use that to modify my diet/lifestyle so I can operate as optimally as possible.

It's a tool, like any other substance you can use for wakefulness, but you'll eventually build tolerance & if you're not taking care of your health like you know you need to, well.... you get the point.

The first time I took some I looked at gun parts for 8 hours straight.

Yeah a friend of mine took apart all of his retro consoles and spent 12hrs cleaning them meticulously while on moda. Thought you'd find that interesting given your undertitle :D

A book that I would recommend is You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises by Mark Lauren.

I have Mark Lauren's book, all his DVD's and the YAYOG app. It really is very simple stuff and I'd highly recommend him as well. I particularly like the DVD's. YAYOG dvd is really challenging and I consider myself pretty fit. Easy to be inspired/motivated by Mark as well given he's an ex-seal/instructor. Tapped right into my childish macho fantasies!!!
