Currently I take 50-90mg ritalin and 200-300mg provigil everyday. The combination can sometimes result in "brain fog" if I administer the medications at the same time. To circumvent this I swallow 100-200mg provigil in the morning, wait untill lunch to take the ritalin ( at varying doses) and in the late afternoon administer additional ritalin or provigil or both if I feel the need. Works like a charm. Enjoy.
so ADHD drugs and modafinil interact badly, give you brain fogs? i'd thought they'd give you double boost in concentration, energy/endurance/stamina, brain power, and no need to sleep for a while (like staying awake for 40, 50 hours straight), and make you a super workhorse like a super-human! apparently not and a dangerous combo
You have to realize that there are many mechanisms in which these drugs work. There are many neurotransmitters which are being altered and altered in different ways. To someone uneducated you'd think that it would be super yet sometimes the mechanisms of action of one particular chemical will completely blunt out the positive effects of another chemical being taken concurrently. You throw in a dozen or two different chemicals, and there is now a million variables to try and figure out. Also, different people are different in how they react to one drug; just think how much differently they could possibly react to a couple dozen drugs.
When stacking many chemicals together, one kind of leaves the realm of a clinical, controlled setting in their experimentation. They are now, in a sense, on their own in their experimental endeavors. This is the reason why studying all of these things cannot be done overnight. Even the smartest of pharmacological scientists cannot possibly tell you how even 3 chemicals will react in tandem in your particular biological makeup.
One can literally only assume how a certain stack will 'behave' with your chemistry. The only way to actually know how things will react with your body is to experiment on your own. This in its own right is risky. In reality, everyone on this board are taking risks in their concoctions which they or others devise for their consumption.
