I discuss the pros and cons of Modafinil and how these kinds of supplements affect creativity versus focus.
I took this originally for the purpose of an article and found myself using it a few more times to help with late-night app work and pumping out lots of writing. It was only then I realised it would be easy to become addicted. Long-term studies haven’t yet been carried out and no one quite knows the mechanisms of action.
That’s not to say this supplement is going to kill you. I bought mine from a German pharmaceutical company – it’s available off the shelf in many countries – and it’s listed as having no side effects and being very safe. Ultimately it feels like caffeine x 10 with a few interesting additional quirks.
There’s certainly an interesting discussion to be had about nootropics but I’ll save that for another time.
Anyway for my full appraisal… watch the video!
