I'm planning to start using adrafinil, where are the best cheap sources to get it from. I'd rather do modafinil but apparently it's illegal in the us and i'm not really sure how I can get a prescribtion. Are the laws for modafinil import really enforced?

Also is 600 mg in the morning a good dosage for adrafinil?

Price: $29.99

http://www.biogenesi...i-adrafinil.asp
Price: $33.20

Price: $26.3416

Each place has their own shipping charges and procedures. Biogenesis delivers fastest to the US, in my experience.

Copied from another discussion:

With regard to adrafinil, it's been a while since I read many specifics, but I remember reading that long-term adrafinil use was associated with liver toxicity.


Data on long term use of Adrafinil has never been published; however, modafinil, Adrafinil's primary metabolite -- has been much more extensively researched.

Posted Image

All of the research I have read on Adrafinil has been for three month intervals in elderly subjects (45-88 years of age). The dose used primarily in that research was typically 600mg before breakfast and 300mg around lunch time. Liver values appeared to stay normal within the studies referenced starting page 13 of this paper. There might have been some data I missed that suggests Adrafinil can change values in certain liver enzymes; I just have not seen it.

Attached is an excellent write up on the pharmacological profile of adrafinil by CNS reviews. Included are summaries from research on human subjects (starting on page 13).

600mg is a good starting dose, probably best administered on an empty stomach to get optimum effects and absorption.

When I was taking adrafinil, I asked my Doctor to write me up CMPs to watch for changes in liver enzymes. If you have any sort of liver, kidney, or mental disorder, don't take it.

In the United States, Adrafinil is not even classified as a drug as far as I know. Importing it has an inherent risk that an individual can open your mail and bad stuff can happen. However, it's highly unlikely considering Adrafinil isn't in US pharmacopeia...

Adrafinil has only 1 hrs half life and modafanil 3hrs? That pretty short. They mention something about dosage specific concentration. Worth a read

Siwak et al. (54) have looked at plasma concentrations of adrafinil, modafinil, and
CRL 40467, at 2 and 10 h after treatment with adrafinil at doses of 10, 20, 30, and
40 mg/kg in the dog. Blood samples were taken 2 h following dosing on days 1 and 9 of
treatment and 10 h following dosing on days 4 and 13.
Consistent with previous findings, plasma concentration of adrafinil decreased more
rapidly than the plasma concentration of either metabolite. The time-dependent changes in
plasma levels also varied as a function of dose but in a complex way. At 2 h, there was a
direct relationship; the higher dose correlated with the higher concentration. This was not
the case at 10 h, where a U-shaped relationship was observed; a lower concentration of
adrafinil was seen following treatment with 40 mg/kg than after treatment with 10 mg/kg.
Compared to the high and low dose, doses of 20 and 30 mg/kg produced higher plasma
levels of adrafinil. Siwak et al. (54) also found changes in the rate of metabolism after repeated
administration. Serum levels of adrafinil were higher and showed a lower rate of
decline after repeated treatment than after initial treatment. Finally, there were often
marked individual differences in serum levels, which correlated with individual differences
in behavioral responsiveness. There are several possible explanations for these unusual
effects. For example, adrafinil may act as an enzyme inducer at high concentrations
only. Future studies should examine this possibility.

This site look relatively cheap but I hate the fact that you have to send something by mail. It seems a way too long for me for nothing, but it's way cheaper! You have to fill that thing and you can't even send it by mail.

when they say that adrafinil has 1 hrs half life, it means that it takes 1 hour for half of adrafinil decay into modafinil. So, in a way, it is like you're taking a pill of modafinil with 1-hour delayed action.
3 hours for modafinil is probably inaccurate. FDA label for Provigil says "the effective elimination half-life of modafinil after multiple doses is about 15 hours."

n the United States, Adrafinil is not even classified as a drug as far as I know. Importing it has an inherent risk that an individual can open your mail and bad stuff can happen. However, it's highly unlikely considering Adrafinil isn't in US pharmacopeia...

Adrafinil is not an FDA-approved drug. Federal law prohibits "the introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce" of any non-approved drugs.
Does this law make it illegal to buy adrafinil online or bring it from Mexico? Your guess is as good as mine. Is FDA going to waste its resources trying to prosecute you for it? Highly unlikely. 100 to 1 that they'll just send you the package anyway, or seize it and then eventually return it to the sender.

There is one big legal difference between adrafinil and modafinil. If you're searched by the police, e.g. at a traffic stop, and they find two pills of modafinil in your pocket, it can mean jail and criminal record, unless you have a prescription for it. If they find adrafinil, there's nothing they can do. I heard stories about cops tracking packages with prescription drugs and then getting search warrants for recipients' houses. It's MUCH easier to bust someone for possession than to prove in court that he was the one who actually ordered the drugs.

As for legality, here's what Wikipedia has to say on the subject:

In the United States, adrafinil is currently unregulated. It has not been approved for any clinical uses by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Unlike modafinil, adrafinil is not classified as a controlled substance and does not fall under DEA jurisdiction; in particular, it is not illegal to possess without a prescription and can be imported privately by citizens.

This is the worst nootropics website I've ever seen.

If they aren't capable of a building a proper website I am not going to ingest any of their products nor will I trust them to securely handle my personal information.

Hello peakplasma,

Well, awakebrain worked for me. I had another shipment arrive within 3 days of my order. Also, please show me a proper nootropics website since I'm always in the lookout for a good source. I'd try the darknet, but don't have the balls for it.

I'm currently on selegiline 5 mg pills (Brand name NIAR here in Mexico) and it works pretty well for concentration, focus and motivation, when im not on selegiline i go for modafinil, brand name modiodal here... both are a little expensive but they are worth the money. on modafinil i can concentrate and plan , my verbal and working memory are very increased. I am pro smart drugs, here in mexico there is no smart drugs movements or communities or anything, the only good thing is that you can get almost any of this drugs without a prescription..... so if anyone wants something shipped from Mexico im here to help... i can purchase for you selegiline, modafinil, strattera, any SSRI, Hydergine,etc my gmail is : smartdrugsmexico@gmail.com

There is several reputable vendors of Adrafinil, and you can pretty much find it in what ever form (powder, capsule, tablet) from these vendors. I order through Smart Drugs for Thought, but I have tried LiftMode, and from a few other sellers who carried. All of them seem to be pretty similar and differences of quality dosen't vary between the sellers too much. So really it just boils down to what form you are looking to get, Capsule or powder?

I would never order from these people. They may ship you a product but it's certainly not guaranteed to be legitimate. As an example, someone ordered their Choline and had it tested only to find out it wasn't what they thought they were purchasing. There are many threads that serve as warnings over in the Nootropics & Stack Advice forum(s) or subreddits on Reddit.com.

Edit: Found one the the threads and it's been stickied: http://www.reddit.co...esults_warning/

Here's a couple links one of the user's (SloBlaze) found and posted in the very thread above...for convenience, I'll repost them here:

Beware of NOOTRABIOLABS and JOHNSON LABORATORIES, they are the same as Cerebral Health!!! Proof : Website of Cerebral health => http://cerebralhealth.com/ Says "Cerebral Health, LLC was incubated at the Alexandria Innovation Center in Jupiter, Florida"
Random item from Johnson Laboratories => http://goo.gl/fGF1QN Item location: Jupiter, Florida, United States
Johnson Laboratories IS Nootrabiolabs => They sent me the same CoA + Look up at that information found on the web : http://www.fda.gov/I...s/ucm198452.htmhttp://www.exporters...abs/enquiry.htm
Same address... (1100 Sioux St., Jupiter, Florida - 33458)
No doubt it's the same guy, this is called MONOPOLY. So beware of all nootropics you're buying from them!
Anf of course check out the address on google street view, seems like it's a regular house, where's that huge center they advertise on their website? Certainly doesn't belong to that guy.
Don't buy anymore to that guy, this guy is trying to take control over the nootropic market and make his own monopoly.

While i do figure that something like this should be taken seriously,, i cant stop to feel like someone has it out for Cerebral Health..
There are two instances where their products have been "not to specs" or otherwise caused problems, one is as you mentioned; the Choline,, and the other one seems to have been an allergic reaction to their Pyritinol which people on the Reddit forum then accredited as a fault of Cerebral Health, though, Cerebral Health did actually pull their Pyritinol from the shelves.
Im not defending Cerebral Health or their products, but two accounts of problematic products dont make the whole company wrongful..

I still wouldn't order from them when there are other reliable sources. Any business can improve their practises and CH has the same ability to put safe guards in place. I do believe there may have been more accounts on Reddit though and not just the two I've read about. I could be wrong and I have no vested interest in any vendor. If memory serves me correctly, I could have swore I've skimmed through similar accounts albeit in different posts. Again, nothing against them personally but the fact that they misrepresent the very building they operate out of smells a bit fishy.

Thanks for the advice. I've never posted, just lurked... but wish I had more to contribute to the cause.

I just purchased from Smart Drugs for Thought. I've never tried adrafinil so I was waiting for a company that was able to provide a COA before deciding. They have it available. I also checked out the lab that made the report. The lab (american analytical chemistry laboratories) was recently purchased by Intertek.

I've ordered other things from them via Amazon before. I really dislike capping my own supplements even though I have 1000 vcaps and a 100 slot acrylic manual filler from China. It's just messy and I have more money than time. I suppose that's why I supplement... so I can work harder... and smarter. Also that why I rarely post to forums :-). I'll try to be helpful to the cause and make the time to reply with the delivery times and so forth.

Glad to hear that your order was received and that I could be of some help. I see that SDFT placed their Adrafinil COA up on their facebook so if any want to take a look who are looking for a trustworthy and reliable Adrafinil source.
