yea, i would take it.
I take it almost daily. IT's completly different from ADD drugs.
It's psych-stimulant, which wakes you up, you feel like you have had the best nights sleep, and it doesn't effect your CNS.

i like it much better than adderall/concerta/ritalin. it is much smoother and no crash. the crash on adderall is crippling. i love this stuff on my overnight calls. i stay up 30 plus hrs with 1 200 mg pill and have no problems.

Ive used provigil a ton....I work swing shift, and I initially started using it because I would often be up for literally 24-36 hours....I dont tolerate stimulants like ephedrine very well at all....This works entirely via a different pathway. There is no stimulant like feel when your on it. You simply are more alert and stay focused a little better. I think its fantastic, HOWEVER I do know that I crash when I come down...if Im driving home from work I can sometimes hardly stay awake.
An interesting aside...The FDA and USOC didnt know anything about this until they raided Conte. Conte had some on hand because Pat Arnold had recommened it to him...As soon as they saw it, they immediately threw it on the watch list.

I've used it for shift work and changing my sleep schedule. You develop a tolerance quickly with regular use, so that the effects become shorter and shorter. It's not good as a replacement for sleep forever and you have to catch up still but if you need to be awake one more day then it's ok.

I have been using Modafanil for years, that and the cheaper (that doesn't work so well) Adrafanil. No side effects, and nothing but nice things to say about it. If you absolutely have to stay up past 24-Hours, or have to be effective on damn little sleep, Modafanil trumps caffeine and amphetamines. No crash, no shakes, no jitters, you just turn off that little part of the brain that keeps reminding you to sleep. I use Melatonin and Modafanil to control sleep, as needed: versus as the sun comes up or goes down. You can successfully stay awake for several days on Modafanil and still been fairly effective. Provided you adjust your diet to fuel the body accordingly of course. I love the stuff.

haha just curious. It would most likely show up as methamphetamine since they have some similar downstream metabolites, I know that I friend of mine who takes focalin (dexmethylphenidate) tests positive for speed.

I consider it a weak to moderate effector on the arousal/drowsy axis. Yet its optimal use lies elsewhere. It would be interesting to see an fMRI study...I mean there is something going on with it but I don't think it is as nearly as activating of the frontal lobe as methylphenidate or amphetamine.
