Please Don't Abuse It - Some Of Us Need It

DOSE:
200 mg oral Modafinil (daily)

BODY WEIGHT: 295 lb


I was diagnosed with MS a few years ago and waking up and just living life is an exhaustive task. I've asked doctors what I can take for more pep and they've all said the same thing: coffee and exercise.

I've done that. Caffeine makes me nauseated and exercise has helped me lose 40 pounds - but still leaves me tired. I did my own research and found that Modafinil is an off-label medication for MS. I asked my doctor about it and he refused to prescribe it because many people are abusing it. Disheartened, I went online and bought it from India.

After a week of taking 200mg every morning I cannot begin to express how much this medication has helped. I wake up feeling normal for once instead of depressed and drag-ass tired. I'm not high - I can't go and run a marathon - but I can FUNCTION.

Yet doctors are hesitant to prescribe it because a lot of kids are trying to use it like coke or as a study aide. So, please...if you want to get high please leave this medication alone. The abuse is just making it hard for people that legitimately need it.
