After doing long research on the Modafinil (scientific report, discussion, review...) I finally decide to buy some.

To put this in context, I have no ADHD, I am a simple high school student looking for additional help to perform in studies as well as in the development of my company (I admit that it is more for the development of my company).

Indeed, I have a complicated rhythm of life (like many I think). My days are boiling down to working in high school from 8am to 6pm, to go home and to work again from 7pm to 0am. So my pace of life is rather intense and I have to perform.

To make it short, I order modafinil, I receive it, and I decide to take it because I have to catch up on a week of work that I did not do (intense procrastination at the beginning of the summer vacation).

As a reminder, the report I am going to give you will not be based on a school use but a purely professional use (company task).

P.S. This report will describe my experience and my opinion as objectively and honestly as possible.

And sorry for my bad english, I'm french

Here it is:

ē Wake up 7am Take half a Modalert pill and go back to sleep

ē 7h45 Unable to sleep, start my day, grab a bottle of water and get to work

ē I didnít take any breaks, no cigarettes, no social media, just working. I feel a concentration on all the spots Iím doing. Time seems to go slower, so I can do more.

ē 12pm Ė 1:30pm I eat, I smoke a cigarette while following, outside with music, I feel good, I focus on everything I see and hear. I take back 100 mg of Modafinil (the other half)

ē 1:30pm Ė 5:00pm I am working without stopping once

ē 5:20 PM At the time I am writing this report, I will keep you updated on what is next.

Side effect: Tightness of my back, back pain, dry mouth, 2.5 liters of water has been drinking since 7:30 am, slight headache, urine that smells bad.

Additional notes: my thoughts seemed fluid throughout the day, the effects were subtle but very real, it is 17:24 and I do not feel tired at all, I feel good.


The notion of time seems complex, I had the impression throughout the day when I was working and watching the time as the time passed slowly, so I could do more in less time. Now at 6:00, taking a step back, I didnít see the day go by, I feel like another day is starting.

ē Itís 6:00 pm and Iím feeling great, Iím going to go back to work, see if my concentration will be that good.

ē 18:30 Always focused but less, still no feeling of fatigue.

ē 19:00 I have just finished a week of work in 1 day (sale / prospecting / KPIs / Advertising structure / Copywriting writing / Strategic implementation)

Plus at least 9 Ė 10 hours of work without a break (only one at noon)

Retrospective: What makes me say that I was focused:

- only 1 cigarette smoked so far (7pm) when I would normally be at 6 or 7

- I looked at my phone 3 times a day and it was for work and send a message/ When I would usually spend 2/3 hours in the day to swipe the Instagram and Youtube feed

- My only break was 12:00 (lunch). I usually take a break every 2 hours

- I did not write this report during the day because I was only thinking about the work I had to do. And still, I didnít even think about it, I was like absorbed in my spots.

- It seemed to work more efficiently / with less friction in my thinking.

- Everything I did seemed nice, even things I didnít like doing too much (like copywriting for example)

Side effect felt now (19h05) Big back pain (shoulder) which I think could be explained by a lack of movement on my part. (Except for going to urinate, I made only one pause) I still donít feel the slightest fatigue

Additional Notes: I feel like my reward circuit has changed. Usually, when I finish a task, I need to indulge myself (often with a cigarette) Under Modafinil, I didnít need it, I forgot it. Every task I did and finished contributed to my reward.

Usually when I work, I often have a pen that I spin in my hand, I havenít rotated a pen all day.

I usually swing sometimes on my desk chair today, not once. This sound can be small details but which do not deceive in my opinion.

ē 7:30pm: Iím tired, my eyes donít concentrate as easily as before, I smoke one last cigarette.

ē 22h00: Iím in bed. I decide to consult my activity on my phone today (how long I spent on it), the result is aberrant. I fall asleep quickly. Alarm clock scheduled for 8:30 am


Next day:

ē I wake up without waking up at 8:10 a.m. I donít feel tired, I feel like Iíve had a restorative night.

Without modafinil, I spend between 8 and 10 hours a day on my phone swiping on Instagram and Youtube

With modafinil, I spent 3 hours there.

What'sApp Business → The 52 minutes were spent in discussion with my client for the integration of his advertising account, Instagram and Facebook to my business manager and for advertising targeting questions.

Snapchat → The 25 minutes were spent chatting with a friend around 5:30 p.m. / 6 p.m.

Video Lite → The 17 minutes were spent in my 2 cigarette breaks where I listened to music at the same time

If I had to sum up in a few words the sensations that modafinil gave me

ē Extreme concentration / no more futile distractions
ē Time contraction (able to do more in less time)
ē No more dead time during the day (only one pose taken in 10 hours of work)
ē Slight feeling of well-being (euphoria) and fulfillment
ē Modified reward circuit (Not all tasks, even the most boring ones usually seem boring to me)
ē No fatigue felt

The effects are subtle, I didn't feel them directly or slightly, it was at the end of the day that I thought to myself "damnnn I've never had such a productive day in my bor**l life"

-------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------

In conclusion, this pill is just completely amazing, I wouldn't take it every day (once a week / once every 2 weeks)
