    Your logic is backwards; instead of looking for something to compensate for a lack of sleep, you should look for a good sleep aid.

    Bulk 1-Carboxy from NP, another good sleepy-time enhancer.

    I've gotta go with Rodja on this one, this is probably the smartest thing to do.. but, if you must have a stim, why not just get some caffeine?

    Caffeine and Bulk Chocamine, both from NP..

    The caffeine for the initial energy boost, and the slower-acting chocamine to make SURE that you don't crash as the day goes.

    I can't really comment on how long it'll last, that depends on your body.

    I use FocusXT morn or mid day before school. sic energy burst & focus. BUT if you are sensitive to stims, keep any caffeine intake around 200mg to be safe and avoid any crash or to quick of tolerance build up.
    I tend to associate caffeine with more of a awake feel but, i tend to lose focus on it. Im awake, but my mind wanders.
    I usually hit about 600mgs a day if im feelin like it. i been tryint ot stay at 200mg.

    Good luck.

    PS-I agree. it starts at sleep.

    I practically live on Spike Shooters. Nice clean energy, no crash.

    I haven't tried the pills yet, but friends have said the exact same thing about them, lots of focus, non-jittery and no crash. They are programmers that stare at code all day, so unfocused and jittery is NOT good.

    A good nights sleep is key too, 1-C, melatonin and ZMA knocks me the hell out. Its the morning grogginess that I utilize the shooters for.

    Morning caffeine is a bad idea, wish I never had it in high school.

    Focus on getting good sleep, do anything to get it, 1carboxy is awesome.

    don't post links to GNC and start buying your supplements at NP.com.

    Get some Xtend, put a few scoops in a gallon of water and drink throughout the day. Also make sure you are getting more sleep. You need 7-10 hrs of sleep a night at your age.

    I agree with most of the guys here that you should mostly focus on getting more/better sleep too, but I know how it is when you just need a boost.

    BLAST is great for the boost with no crash to follow.

    Better sleep will result in more quality awake time. I've been a fan of melatonin 3mg caps for a while, but Abyss (Nimbus Nutrition) has also worked wonders for my wife and I.

    If after attempting better sleep you still find that you need a morning kick in the ass, look up Stimulant X....long-lasting with no crash. (Oops, I pimped... )

    Best of luck to you, though. I know how it is. I hated early classes in college and made sure not to schedule anything before 10:00!! Coffee became my friend, but never quite lasted long enough before I had to go back for more!

    While I think the sleep advice is a good, practical idea, I don't think that is what he was looking for guys. I place primacy on sleep in my training schedule, and in a perfect world I would get my eight hours each night without interruption, but that is not the case.

    Try a caffeine-free mixture like Poseidon, or construct your own privileging antioxidant and amino acid use for stable energy.

    Some ingredients to consider:

    Selenium (in specific forms)
    Manganese Gluconate
    Thiamin Hydrochloride
    Taurine
    Grape Seed Extract
    Niacin
    B6/12
    Potassium

    These are all ingredients which will help mediate cognitive function pathways, through mostly alleviation of oxidative stress. You won't necessarily feel 'stimulated' with a Caffeine mixture, but you will feel awake.

    Most definitely take the better sleep advice, but in a fix this should suffice.

    I'd go for the one marketed as "Xtend" - Scivation. Currently digging the lemon flavor, which says alot cause I don't like lemon flavor.

    This is just the beginning. I would recommend allot more reading before you jump into anything.

    Deprenyl = potent MAO-b inhibitor, positive effect on dopamine.
    http://www.smart-drugs.net/ias-deprenylJS.htm

    Modafinil = Treats Narcolepsy
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Modafinil is a eugeroic drug generally prescribed to treat narcolepsy, made by the pharmaceutical company Cephalon. It is not a typical stimulant and is often described as a "wakefulness promoting agent". The drug is sometimes prescribed off-label for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In mass-media advertisements and websites, Cephalon markets the drug for improving "alertness" and reducing excessive daytime sleepiness.

    Google is probably the best invention ever.
