Can you take modafinil as an alternative to adderall ?
off-course you can take modafinil for ADHD instead of adderall according to this study
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11191692 and this study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17469936/ says modafinil outperformed amphetamines when taken by non sleep deprived individuals !
modafinil is good alternative to adderall and ritalin if you want to be more productive without noticeble and sometime dangerouse side effect caused by adderall and ritalin. sure adderall will make you want to do more" work " but so do modafinil and caffien . one benifit of adderall over modafinil is that adderall induce fat loss more than modafinil.
just because an innocent , intelligent looking doctor prescribe you something doesnt mean its harmless for body or non addictive to your physiology . Doctors of america are so smart and careful that they have prescribed drugs like oxycodon ( which is just dilluted heroin ) to many many people in usa and now there is opiod epidemic in usa ( you can search it on goolge) . this study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6258178/ says recent evidence shows doctors played a key role in opiod epidemic in usa .
Adderall can produce many side effect and following side effects are common
increase in blood presser
increase in heart rate
insomnia if you take slow release adderall or if you take adderal at evening
agitation if your CNS is too sensitive
feeling nervouse for no apparent reason
loss of hunger
unwanted weight loss
one problem with adderall is that you can not do strenuous physical activity on adderall when situation arises because of adderall's negative effect on your heart rate . This is the reason people in milltery can use modafinil but not adderall on regular basis.
people who have pre-existing heart problem can die suddnly if they abuse adderall and even adult with ADHD have high risk of sudden death and acute myocardial infarction when using adderall (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4992783/)
modafinil can actually be healthier and smarter choice than adderall or ritalin for some people because not every person who is seeking treatment for ADHD wana feel high . Some people want to avoid agitated feeling they get from ritalin or adderall because some people are already hyper and adderall just doesnt go well with them . they just want to be more productive without noticable side effects.
can you feel high with adderall ? offcourse you can . A high feeling is felt ( this adderall high comes with confidence ) when adderall or ritalin is taken in higher dose but with modafinil this feeling is very subtle and not " in your face" like with ritalin or adderall. The main benifit of modafinil is that its much much less addictive than adderall or ritalin .
do you know that adderall is schudle 2 drug in USA . a schudle 2 drug is considered potentially addictive and drugs in this categiry can be misused by user . on the other hand modafinil is schudle 4 drug in usa. A schudle 4 drug is much less addictive than schudle 2 drugs like adderall , therefore modafinil has lower abuse potential than adderall or ritalin.
importing modafinil to usa from india or buying modafinil usa to usa from our website www.modaphinil.com has very low risk because its schdule 4.
Benifit of modafinil is that you can quit using it cold turky and feel fine in next day or two hence we can say modafinil has low abuse potential . on the other hand quitting adderall abruttbly may bring you seriouse depression , anxiety like behavior and suicidal thoughts (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2946460/ ) . the reason for feeling of tiredness after quitting adderall is that it when you take adderal or any amphetamine it stimualate adrenalin which makes your adrenal gland tired . once abused or overworked , adrenal gland needs time to recover , it doesnt repair itself overnight and you cant fix it with just coffee in the mroning.
When you discontinue Amphetamine like adderall you encounter something that is called " adderall crash " and RHS which is increased sleep following increased wake (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2768944/) .
this crash or RHS doesnt happen with modafinil and even with combo of caffien and modafinil it doesnt happen accourding to study attached in above paragraph. . After discontinueing modafinil you may feel somewhat less confidence for 24-- 48 hour ( personal experince ) .
amphetamines like adderal can cause neurotoxity , seizer , stroke , pychosys , slowed growth in children ( when given at early age ) according to study punlished by Steven M. Berman amd Ronald kuczenski https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2670101/
in the same study paper its being said that in 1930s it was observed that amphetamine is leading to widespread prescription drug abuse . That is the reason many countries severly restricted prescription of amphetamine like adderall in 1980s .
this study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3286657/ even says that modafinil is and " anti-physcotic " and can be used by solder or canecr patients to " brighten " the mood because a soldier or cancer patients may feel depressed or stressed .
one more benifit of modafinil is that it doesnt supress your appetite as much adderall or ritalin do since modafinil doesnt effect your CNS as much as adderall or ritalin . notice when you drink coffee you feel less hungry afterwards , thats caffien stimueliting your CNS and because of that feeling of hunger is supressed and energy is incresed . people who are concerned about losing weight with adderall or ritalin can choose modafinil and eat according to their normal schedule and mainten their weight . weight training and excersise after consuming modafinil is not as problemetic as with amphetamine like adderall . modafinil will make you train at faster pace without feeling tired but it does increase blood pressure if you take more than 200 mg or if you are overweight and doing strenouse physical activity .
adrenalin is one Out of many neurotransmitters that is triggered by adderall (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3666194/ ) . adrenalin is fight or flight hormone and its main work is to prepare your body to face an upcoming challange . problem with uneccessary adrenalin release is that it makes many people feel nervous and confused for no apparanet reason . some people may even feel paranoid and irritated and just edgy with adderal due to over stimueltion of adranalin releasing gland and CNS .
modafinil on the other hand doesnt trigger relese of adrenalin hormone hence this agitated tense feeling which is common with adderall is not associated with modafinil use. both adderal and modafinil can produce , nausea , dizzyness ,tremor and other side effect but occurence for such side effect is much lower with modafinil use.
when you mix adderall with alchohol mistaknly (which commonly happens in real life out of ignorance ) , it can cause alcohol poisoning, behaviral changes and heart problems .
Some adults also intentionally try mixing adderall with alcohol to have a desired effect and that is a dangrous mix .(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2583913/). when adderall addiction is at peak a user start snorting or even injecting adderall and this can be fatal as it increases heart rate rapidly .
main reason for starting my website www.modaphinil.com was to give safe alternative to people in form of modafinil and with domestic USA TO USA availabilty of modafinil .
