How many of us use Modafinil like a Medication?
I know for many years I didn’t. One of the secrets to using Modafinil, is to treat it like you would any other medication prescribed by your doctor. Take the same dose of Modafinil at the same time everyday!
My day ends at 8pm, and by that time I’m done and ready for bed. Over the years I have fined tuned which Modafinil I use and what is my best time to take it.
Stronger is not always better.
But as I have found out from personal trial and error, stronger is not always better.
Just to break up the cycle. But always at the same time everyday and the same dose. Never two tablets at once, that gives me a headache!
I agree with the majority, SUN pharma products are slightly stronger that HAB pharma. But that’s not what I’m interested in.
I want to be focused and alert all day. Quick to solve problems, and get a good amount of sleep every night.
Which is why I use Artvigil, it’s not the strongest, but it’s the best for me!
