[/airquote] Ok here goes.
Modafinil @ 150-300mg (airsealed)
Consumed about 5 days a week aprox.
Other suppliments taken:
-Rhodiola @ 100-200mg
-Theanine @ 100-300mg
-Fish oil @ 3-4g
-ALA @ 200mg
-ALCAR @ 400-800mg
-Good for motivation (confidence but not realy well-being)
-Good for memory (although Im not to shure of how long and short the memory gain is)
and speed comprehension
-Dont like it when combined with caffeine or other stims
-When stimulation goes a bit over the top with it (ie. anxiety) it scatters me around a bit too much, and is quite counterproductive.
-I dont like my personality on modafinil (this is a big one for me). Too much of a smart ass and not too creative. Very mechanic in task. My mind dosent stop to look at new alternatives. Too logical and not too emotional
-Havent tried not sleeping for the night or anything like that
-Verbal fluency is not that good altogether. Some words are missing sometimes though I manage to get my message across through more words
-Headache until I get used to it
-Skipping days definitively helps boost
-Although it is good for concentration. Some times it gets me to [airquote] wired [/airquote]. I might go on the internet and get trapped there for hours on end. Willpower has to be employed to get the energy flowing in the right direction. Caution here
-Dont enjoy it socialy. Too tense and calculating, not natural.
-I get best results when I do my relaxation/breathing exercises
-Definitely a nootropic in some aspects for me
-When I stop taking it I feel a bit more tired than normal (might be subjective or tired as compared to on modafinil)
-Tense muscles in back and neck
-Very good for mental energy (still physically sluggish) --- racing mind and tired body at times
Might come up with a few more observations but thats it for now.
Found out that there was some pills for memory enhancement for the elderly being sold over the internet with low doses of fluoxetine modafinil and two memory enhancing chemicals being sold over the net. Tetratabs. Anyone heard of those, according to an article I read on the spainsh internet newspaper they got banned/busted for being ilegaly sold and used mainly by students.
