Nootropics
#11
Thank you, Hamil.  I suffer from insomnia and did not want to go a different route.  Your detailed experience has really helped me make a decision of trying moda next.

I started taking modafini when my mother was dying. I would have to drive the 200 miles to take care of her every other week. I fell asleep 2x while driving , or my mind would wonder, I couldn't concentrate, I was temperamental towards my husband when I got home. Moda stopped all of that. My concentration improved, my mood lifted, no more sleep issues. Mom has since passed away. Now I only take moda if I make a long distance drive, or I'm involved in something that may need intense concentration. It has been literally, a lifesaver for me.

Will be trying moda for the first time in the next few days. My PC recommended it months ago and it slipped my mind. Hoping for a good outcome

I have occasionally used modafinil in very small quantities (e.g. 1/6th of a 200mg pill). I rarely drink things with caffeine in them, so I have almost zero tolerance to any stimulants (although moda is an atypical stim).

I have to take it very early in the day or it does mess with my sleep at night. I save it for times when I'm pulling very long hours at work and need to be super productive. There is no high or anything like that, but it doesn't make me jittery, it mainly feels like am anti-sleep / anti-tiredness drug. Not sure how cognitively stimulating it is, but I know a considerable percentage of university students take this stuff for exams.

Someone asked about the long term effects of nootropics - it is a good question. Modafinil is a legitimate medicine for narcolepsy and has been around a few decades, so I doubt the long term effects are horrific or we'd started to have seen it among those originally prescribed it. Moda  has a "sister drug" that is more like the pro-drug, because it has to be converted via your liver I believe it is a bit harder on your system. But modafinil itself doesn't share that problem (to the best of my knowledge). The other nootropics are much harder to know the long term effects - unless I am mistaken, the majority are noo/new and so less is known.

Do your research and stay safe :-)

Currently noopept and modafinil are what I'm working with, though I'm about to start an oxiracetam+piracetam+aniracetam+noopept stack ahead of finishing up a diploma I need to get done (trying to wean myself off moda because it's a bit TOO good, if you know what I mean?)

Studying / work are my primary reasons for trying them out, but if they make day-to-day life better then that's a bonus!

i really like anaracitam. i think i took 750mg before golf and gave to a few friedns. i was in the zone :Smile nice smooth energy very focused and good mood.

Totally agree with what you're saying. Modafinil and Piracetam (stimulant) have had decades of research behind, and continuous use is safe. But many of these nootropics are relatively new, and we have no idea what the long term effects are. 

Having said that, I do use both Modafinil and L-Theanine. Moda MUST be taken for me early in the morning else ill be up all night, and L-Theanine gives a nice, non-jittery boost with caffeine. When possible i buy branded, given ow new these class of drugs are.
