Profound Provigil

After having dabbled heavily in a variety of other nootropics ([brand supplement], Piracetam, Pramiracetam), and with the school year rapidly approaching, I figured it was time to finally take the plunge and grab some Provigil.

My pressed pills, Modalert, arrived in the mail earlier today. I've had massive adrenal burnout from being a constantly performing musician, working, keeping up on maintaining my house, and having a total caffeine addiction, so I was hesitant to take one at first. Eventually, temptation got the best of me and I took the plunge.

First off, this stuff does not crack me out like Adderall does, in fact it's a very different experience. Different, however, in a very good way. I've gotten to the point where when I take Adderall I have massive panic attacks, even though I've been using it for years. It will get to the point where I'll be afraid to drive, living in a state of total paranoia, it really sucks.

Modafinil, however, is different. The best way to describe it is that it is a much nicer experience, and possibly much more productive as well. When I take enough Adderall, I end up aimlessly browsing the web for hours while I'm biting my lip and trying to convince myself that I'm not going to get arrested or abducted by aliens. Modafinil allows for quiet, nice productivity. It makes it so those things that I'm dreading are much more easy, manageable tasks.

It sounds fucked up, but if I've got things I've been putting off and I need to address, this stuff is perfect for that. I've made strides on projects that I really have no interest in doing while on it.

I dosed around 1:00 PM when I woke up, felt the onset in about a half hour, drove places, ran errands, cleaned, did homework, etc. It all feels like a timeshift in a sense. It is now 13 hours later and the drug is STILL FUCKING WORKING. I took a Melatonin tablet around 1:00AM, felt tired for maybe 20 minutes or so, and then bounced right back. It's really hard to believe that all that time has passed.

As far as cognitive enhancement goes, it is hard to say that I'm not receiving a cognitive boost on this stuff. I feel as if I am recalling information more effectively, but I also stacked it with [brand supplement]. As I write this, I'm sitting in my computer chair feeling more alert than I have been in years. I live in a rougher part of town and I'm extremely perceptive of each and every little sound that is occurring both in and outside of my home...and it's 2:00 in the morning...and I took a sleeping pill.

This stuff really is amazing. It feels cleaner and safer than Adderall in a lot of ways...and I'm only at 100mg. I can't wait to see what 200mg feels like.

Additionally, as far as nervousness goes, I didn't feel much at all. There were isolated moments where I would have little nervous tinges (I'm kind of high strung as is), but it really was nothing compared to the tsunami of anxiety that most stimulants are for me.
