Informal instructions for use with modafinil
When it comes to modafinil dosage, everything is very individual. However, many adhere to the scheme, which will be discussed later.
50 mg modafinil
This is the ideal dose for most people taking this medicine during the work week. This is a small dose, but enough to get a “hit” and a load for the next 4-6 hours. By adhering to this dose, a person feels awake, focused and full of energy throughout the working day, while the regime and quality of sleep are not disturbed. Side effects in the background of such a dose usually do not occur.
100 mg modafinil
Modafinil 100 mg is slightly more potent than armodafinil 75 mg. The positive effect of the drug lasts 8 hours or more. This is the ideal dose if you have to work hard without feeling tired, but at the same time fall asleep easily after midnight. A side effect of this dose, if present, is manifested by minor symptoms.
200 mg modafinil
This is the gold standard when it comes to significantly improving cognitive performance. For many people, based on such a dose, an increased concentration continues for 12 hours or more. Side effects are rare, in some cases insomnia, headache, dehydration may occur.
300 mg modafinil
Din nou, aceasta este o doză mare de medicament, așa că trebuie luată cu prudență. După o asemenea cantitate de iarbă, o concentrare impecabilă este garantată cel puțin pentru următoarele 18 ore. Cu toate acestea, este important de menționat că, pe baza unei astfel de doze, pot apărea deja reacții adverse, inclusiv greață. Cel mai bine este să împărțiți această doză în mai multe doze.
400 mg modafinil
If you need to stay awake for 24 hours, then 400 mg of modafinil will help. However, with such a dose, you need to be extremely careful if you are not used to the medicine. As in previous cases, this dose is best divided into several doses. It is definitely contraindicated for regular use.
These doses were determined based on feedback received from hundreds of people taking modafinil.
Recommended doses of the drug:
- 200 mg modafinil – if you need to stay awake during the day and late at night;
- Armodafinil 75 mg – when it is important to be as productive as possible during the day, but it is easy to fall asleep at night.
But everything is very individual and, in most cases, you have to choose the ideal doses for you, starting from the minimum, gradually increasing them.
