Microdoses of modafinil for women
The standard dose of modafinil is 200 mg. Many people take this amount of grass only in the morning to feel alert and to maintain their cognitive functions until late at night.
Others divide this dose into two doses: 100 mg modafinil in the morning and the same amount in the afternoon. Such a scheme allows you to keep your cognitive skills at the same high level during the day, thus providing extra energy after lunch.
However, not everyone receives standard doses of the drug. Many people prefer to divide this amount into “microdoses”. This is especially true for people who do not need to maintain a high concentration during the day, but simply recharge for 4-7 hours.
Taking the drug in so-called microdoses has many benefits. First, the risk of side effects is largely eliminated. After performing the necessary work, the person relaxes and falls asleep easily.
Let’s see how microdoses usually work in an adult’s body.
Take 50 mg modafinil in the morning
Significant cognitive improvement lasts 5-7 hours, after which the typical symptoms of modafinil decrease. About 13 hours after taking nootropic, it turns out that he falls asleep easily, which will not happen after using 200 mg of the drug. In addition, a dose of 50 mg has no side effects.
25 mg modafinil in the morning and in the afternoon
This dose, accompanied by a cup of espresso, helps to increase the concentration in the next 4 hours. This medication may be ideal for people whose workday ends. 18:00 and then you can relax.
“Moving mountains” by using the drug in microdoses is unlikely to succeed, but it is easy to increase your cognitive abilities a little. If it is necessary to remain vigilant and increase attention for 12 hours, it is preferable to resort to standard doses.
Recommended doses for beginners
You should start taking medicines or supplements (BAA) with a minimum dose and gradually increase it. This method allows you to control how the body reacts to the ingredients of the medicine if you are allergic to them and also to determine how fast the metabolism and secretion of the active substance take place.
Almost all drugs that enter the human body are metabolized in the liver. To do this, the liver uses a set of specific enzymes that break down chemicals. Each of them is programmed by specific genes called isoenzymes CYP450.
Because all CYP450 genes are unique, some people are more able to break down some chemicals, but less able to break down others. In fact, this phenomenon explains why some people need to drink coffee constantly during the day to conserve their energy, while others remain active only after a cup of drink. The fact is that the latter organisms cannot break down caffeine as efficiently as the former. And the reason for this is in the CYP450 polymorphism.
The same thing happens with modafinil. Therefore, it is necessary to check the degree of degradation of the medicine before using the maximum doses immediately. People whose bodies have difficulty breaking down modafinil will feel its effects for a long time, even if a low dose is taken.
In addition, if you take the medicine every day, its concentration in the blood increases over time. And this also requires a dose reduction.
