Armodafinil First Experience
After much research on 'smart drugs', much needing to pass my university retakes, I chose between Ritalin and Modafinil. Having prior experience with other Amphetamines, I decided I would be unlikely to be productive. I aquired Armodafinil brand Waklert 150.
In hindsight I should have done more research on dosage, I had naively assumed the side effects would be minimal as others described, this was not the case for me. I should have halfed the 150
I should have halfed the 150
but instead took it whole at around 2pm. I set up my work away from distractions and began. For 2-3 hours I was extremely productive, my mind raced with thoughts to such an extent that I couldn't write fast enough to keep up. I did not experience any of the short term memory improvements however that I was hoping for. Somewhere after this I began getting Diarrhea at hourly intervals, this may or may not have been a side effect. However shortly after I began sweating, especially on my hands which reminded me of MDMA, as did my racing heart. It quickly dawned on me that I was in for more than I expected as my perception of the world changed in odd inexplicable ways.
By 6pm I began procrastining, blitzing through web pages, my work was completely forgotton.
By 7pm I felt a little nausea and constant temperture fluctuations with sweating. I decided to vaporize some Cannabis to reduce the nausea, having repeatedly failed to focus on my assignments. The combination was incredible, for an hour or so I felt euphoria and bliss, I had vaporized bottom of the bag leafy schwag, yet the high felt like a potent sativa or pure THC.
After enjoying music alone for I'm not sure how long, I decided to play some Skyrim, which was extremely intense, I felt utterly consumed by the game, the immersion was on a different level, I was IN the game.
The negative effects of the Armodafinil were cancelled out by cannabis, however top ups were needed often to keep the sweating and nausea at bay. Eventually they stopped returning around 1am and I stopped vaporizing, bringing me up to now. I feel comfortable, my brain is thoroughly fogged, I have to sip water constantly to keep the dry mouth at bay/replace lost fluids.
All in all, I didn't get as much work done as I hoped, but feel I dosed too high as each 150mg pill is equivalent to 300mg Modafinil. Next time I'll half or quarter the pill.
