1000 mg oral Modafinil (pill / tablet)
  800 mg oral Modafinil (pill / tablet)
[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]
I have run across Modafinil plenty of times in my past and never tried it. I have a friend who is prescribed it for shift-work sleep disorder. My first trail was at 1000 mg taken shortly after I woke up. I went back to sleep to test its simulative properties. Of coarse I couldnít get back to sleep and I just laid there for about 30 mins. I started to get the usual Ritalin induced stomach quarks. It keeps building for about an hour and half. The rest of the day I spent trying to find something to occupy my time but nothing seemed to interest me. I was wide-awake and it felt like I was on watered down meth. Boring non-the less. Later that night I decided to re-dose at 800 mg. I stayed up all night playing way to much css. I was doing surprisingly well given the fact that my hand was shaking very badly. It looked as if I was using cheap aim hacks. Lol

I have since taken Modafinil on several different occasions, mainly to get work done. The effects are quite enjoyable on a personal level. Some bad things I noticed that no one else really mentioned are paranoia, shaking, very high bp, and sinus problems. The sinus problems are the worse. I tend to get terrible headaches and have to put a wet towel on my head. All these effects are at the 1000 mg range and are more prone if I re-dose the same day. If I smoke weed with it, I will trip. One occasion I smoked a blunt and started to see objects re-pattern themselves in my peripheral (kind of like a geometric sequence or w/e they are called). Sometimes it has me believing that songs are directed towards me. Almost like amphetamine-psychosis. Very freaky shit indeed but can be handled by entertaining the thoughts rather then ignoring them. On one occasion I was sitting in my friends car while he went into the store. I decided to listen to some music. And the lyrics I heard was my ex telling me she was pregnant. It got so bad that I thought people were fucking with me and I saw the baby in my peripheral. At one point I closed my eyes and actually felt the baby with my hands. It was so real.

To sum it up Modafinil is a very weird drug and will probably be taken off the market soon. I still take it every now and then if I donít have the usual clear. I have had a lot of spiritual type experiences on it.

btw the second dose seems to be more energetic type high that leaves me feeling good. I probably should try a lower dose then 800- 1000 mg.

Trip on,
