I am a mom, and am juggling 3 jobs at the moment. I ordered this from the web, with the intention of helping out my 85 year old mother feel a little get up and go. It made her feel anxious and uncomfortable, so I took it off her hands.

The bottle has been sitting in my medicine cabinet. I havenít been called in to work this week, so decided Iíd take the big task of organizing and doing a Spring cleaning of my house. Particularly my studio area where I craft and collect things to sell online. The mess has gotten out of hand.

After reading experience reports, it made me aware that while my daily doses of Celexa and Lamictal seem like the norm for me, itís important to consider them.

I took it 2 days ago at about 12 P.M. And had a very productive day. In the middle of cleaning, I had a mad desire to do some painting (craft stuff) and was very pleased with the results. I became extremely keyed in to what I needed to do to get my place in order. I proceeded to go to Loweís and Bed Bath and Beyond to get what I wanted to make the space look nice. About 3 hours into it, I took 2 small hits of cannabis. About an hour after, I had a cup of coffee.

I became single minded and super productive in my pursuit. Around 1 am, I decided to hit the hay. It took a long time falling asleep, and my sleep was light. I woke up yesterday morning feeling like an exhausted train wreck, wondering how I would accomplish anything and complete my goal. So... I decided to take another 100 mg. Within 15 minutes, I had energy, felt positive.. And had the drive to accomplish tasks at hand. I will take one more today with the intent of finishing my organization project.

In conclusion. I have suffered from depression for many years, and am on the right combination (I think!) to make it through the ups and downs of life. I smoke cannabis about 2x a week. Just to get the little umpff to get things done at home. I drink occasionally... and will indulge in tobacco during those times. I feel that Modafanil has its place in my life for certain instances. I have no desire to start using it on a regular basis.. As I think that though itís a schedule IV it does have the ability to become addictive. I havenít noticed a huge focus factor in reading or doing mind puzzles. Itís a cleaner buzz than amphetamines, which I have only done a few times in my life. Coming down the next day I feel physically tired.
