My take on recent decline in the quality of the E-pharma market, sparked by the likes of Pulsar, Buy moda and their subsidiaries
As a supplier and manufacturer I have come to realize over the last few months I have seen the pharmaceutical market go to shambles and its a very sad thing as believe it or not, there was once genuine trust and community. Now any community feel is fake, inorganic and and true shame, brought on by companies who try to fool you with fake reviews, fake products and fake secondary blog/info websites that say ‘this is the top 5 modafinil vendors’. It makes me uneasy in my stomach to think these people get away with fooling their users and seeming I work in a high position in the supplier of these soon to be named vendors, I feel a responsibility to shed some light Lets begin with trust pilot After seeing many talks about the presumption on:
How trustpilot reviews must guarantee a shops legitimacy
How shops like buymoda, pulsar meds, modafinilxl and HSP rely on these trust pilot reviews for sales
It saddens me that as a manufacturer, our products are being abused in this way for a quick penny from these in and out companies Lets discuss how trust pilot works Upon signing up to trust pilot as a company, you are given an API to install on your website. This API integrates with your sales and automatically sends an invite to the customer, post-purchase to review the product. The customer clicks the link in the email which goes through to the websites trust pilot page where they are free to make an honest review on their experience Once they complete their review, they get a nice ‘’verified’ badge next to their name in the review This is the only way to do a legitimate review. Has anyone seen a ‘verified’badge on a review for pulsar meds, buymoda, modafinilxl etc? No The next way would be for a website to manually invite someone to write a review, this would give them a nice, ‘’invited’’badge next to their review. Which means nothing apart from
Websites are inviting their friends to review
Websites post in forums like blackhatworld (go there and search buy trust pilot reviews, they have a dedicated forum for it) which cost around $1 per review. Any ‘’invited’’ badge implies this is what has been done and it is a fake review
So, unless a review has the verified badge, this reviewer never purchased from the store and is leaving the review in return for a small financial reward, paid in bitcoin Regardless, almost anyone can leave a review without being invited, but an ‘’invited’ badge is better than nothing right? No, it is not a verified review and literally means nothing, they didn’t even purchase anything There would be one saving grace…if they actually delivered a similar service to what is promised. As everyone knows, the likes of buymoda, modafinXl, pulsarmeds and so on, under deliver at every possible turn. Their medications are not real, They deliver in 3+ months yet promise 7 days after charging huge delivery fees, they lie about dispatch dates due to their financial disorganization, they offer very little support post sale (the most important time for support) and are letting people down left right and centre….but hey, they have their unverified trustpilot reviews. How do I know this? I work CRM at the dropshipping service that supplied these vendors. A little over 1 year ago, they were doing well, they then decided to buy raws from us which we obliged as we thought it would be a great idea for them and found them suitable candidates for such a task. As well as raws, we supplied them with equipment to produce medicines under the guide that they follow our strict production procedures, we also trained them rigorously Once we discovered they were cutting the raws into an inferior product, we cut them off. We take great pride in our medicines, and any corner cutting is an instant ban. We retrieved our equipment and ceased all business with them. Then find out they are still operating. If someone scrolls through their trust pilot, not 1 single verified badge is displayed, they flag their negative reviews as fake for trust pilot to remove them. Trust pilot mostly comply, but sometimes they do not, and they refuse to remove the review. I urge people to stop using these sub par excuse of a business. Their string of bad decisions and mistakes are running them into the ground as they are not supposed to be in this business. As of 6 days ago, a law suit has been filed against them to cease and diciest, hence the shutting down of their stores How many people on reddit have you seen post about their products are dodgy, their orders took 3-4 months, their products arrive in unboxed form, they got no response after payment was made and so on. Modafinil Mike (who is actually female) is a laughable parody of hercself, of which I do know…after our many meets prior to disbanding them. If you have read this far, take a look at their trust pilot, try find any ‘verified’ reviews. They are nonsense. Granted, there may be a few customers that they have actually pleased, but that is only when they were operating through us. I feel sorry for the market we built, not just myself and my team, but the community they have lied to and its about time we as the suppliers step in There are 2 Vendors that we supply that are excellent. They continual spend 60% of their profits on growing and training their customer support, another 15% on research and development. They dream big and take precise, educated moves when it comes to growth. Not just pay a load of people for fake reviews in the hope to fool their potential customers Its time to shake up the market starting with getting rid of the ones bringing it down, before they execute their exit strategy, as they know things are coming to an end for them since the law suit was filed, just as it did with Pulsar meds. The list of subsidiaries they operate under are as follows Highstreetpharma Buymoda Afinilonline Eufinil Neomodafinil Modapharma Shark mood Pulsar meds You have a say, you vote with your $. Cease using these sugar pill vendors and lets restore the market to its former glory
Thanks so much, Lucas, for the excellent customer service and excellent product quality. I reached out to Modafinil looking for vendors that ship here, and Lucas reached out to me and told me all about DinoSupplies. It's not my first time using Modafinil, as it’s sold here in Cambodia, but it’s insanely overpriced. Thus, I had to find an alternative to buying it locally. So I reached out on Reddit and eventually realized that there were all types of vendors selling the product online, some fake, and some legit. I felt comfortable talking to Lucas, even though there were more prominent suppliers out there, Lucas was always very personal and consistent with his responses. So within a couple of days, I made up my mind and placed my first parcel of 300 tablets of Modalert; I wanted to try it instead of Modvigil, which I usually get here to see if there is any difference in quality/strength since it was the more premium product by Sun Pharma. Also, the more you buy, the cheaper it is; but you guys know the drill. I paid using Bitcoin, which wasn't an issue for me since I already had some, but it shouldn't be too difficult for anyone to obtain if they are new, in addition to the 25% discount you get when paying using Crypto. At this stage, it's the only payment option available at Dino’s, but I know Lucas is working on something at the moment to get other payment options up and running. Due to the Coronavirus precautions, my first shipment took quite the route to get here, so I was always in touch with Lucas, freaking out a little about the whole thing, so he immediately sent a replacement parcel just in case to assure me in case anything happens. I just got my first parcel yesterday, nicely wrapped and inconspicuous. The quality of the product is excellent. I’m still waiting for the replacement, but I haven’t discussed with Lucas yet what to do with it if it gets here, but knowing him and from reading previous reviews, he will probably tell me to keep it as a bonus. Especially that he knew I ended up buying it locally while waiting for the parcel to arrive. But anyway, I will confirm that when I speak to Lucas about it in person. I look forward to buying again from DinoSupplies, and I can’t recommend them enough. Lucas, whatever you are doing, you are doing it, right bro, keep up the excellent work. Edit: Lucas has confirmed that the placement is all mine if it ever gets here right after I wrote the review, but I have been too busy lately, with all the crazy things going on with the coronavirus to update the post. So basically, if the replacement ever gets here, I will have 600 pills for the price of 300, plus the 25% bitcoin discount that I already had. Honestly, I can't think of a better deal. Also, a piece of advice for Modafinil noobs like me, if you order a large quantity like mine, try to mix it up a bit to see what works best for you. I realized after trial and error that I prefer the shorter life spam of Modvigil instead of Modalert, which lasts longer. Thus the potency is more spread out, which is not optimum for my usage. So do your research first before you order to make sure you buy what best suits you. I thought Modalert is the better option at first since it was from Sun Pharma, and it was the more expensive pill after all, and that was my main reason for buying it in bulk. Update: I have received both my original and replacement packages, couldn’t be any happier. Thanks again Luke for the freebie :)
Adrafinil vs Modafinil - The Definitive Reddit Guide
What is Modafinil?
Modafinil is a eugeroic – or, simply, a wakefulness-promoting agent – with a primary purpose of combating narcolepsy amongst suffers. Eugeroics differ from other stimulants because they are considered relatively non-addictive. This means that they do not cause the typical side effects experienced with most stimulants, like agitation and nervousness. Let us first discuss the chemical components of Modafinil. It is a racemic mixture, and such mixtures have equal amounts of left- and right-handed enantiomers. Enantiomers are the two forms in which large numbers of chemicals exist. Both forms are chemically and structurally identical, yet are nevertheless mirror images of the other. In other words, enantiomers are the ‘left’ and ‘right’ versions of a drug. These are called S and R enantiomers. One enantiomer is typically responsible for the majority of a drug’s effects, while the other can contribute to those positive effects. In other cases, the less dominant enantiomer can cause adverse side effects, or it be inert. Interestingly Modafinil Most racemic mixtures are balanced equally. This means half of the mixture is ‘left’ enantiomer and the other half is ‘right’. Modafinil is an equal combination of its S- and R- enantiomers, meaning that both have a psychoactive function. Just as you sometimes need two hands to do a job correctly, Modafinil uses both of its enantiomers to provide the ideal effect on body and mind. Preliminary scientific evidence has found that Modafinil works through histamine signaling. This phrase might indeed baffle you if you aren’t familiar with biological terminology. What this essentially means is that the histamine receptors, found for example in the central nervous system, are provoked. Michael J Minzenberg and Cameron S Carter’s journal provides ample scientific research on Modafinil’s neurochemical actions and effects. Histamine acts a neurotransmitter, a chemical substance which is released at the end of a nerve fibre by the arrival of a nerve impulse. Neurotransmitters affect the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fibre, muscle fibre, or some other structure within the body. Modafinil enhances histamine activity by stimulating the central system. This increased activity therefore impacts other nerve fibres/muscle fibres in the body, accounting for its ability to stimulate a fatigued body. As well as fighting tiredness, Modafinil also improves general mood and well-being amongst users, with positive improvements seen with mental focus, analytic capability and memory recall and retention. Britain deems Modafinil a prescription-only drug. In America, meanwhile, Modafinil’s brand name is Provigil. It is considered a scheduled drug, meaning that it necessitates a prescription in order to obtain it legally.
What is Adrafinil?
Adrafinil is a pro-drug to Modafinil. This simply means that supplementation of it increases concentrations of Modafinil in the body. The liver changes Adrafinil to Modafinil. Similarly to Modafinil, Adrafinil’s cognitive benefits are enhanced by noted improvements in day-time alertness, motivation, mood and energy levels. It also does not generate the irritability, anxiousness and nervousness routinely experienced through the use of other stimulants. Britain does not measure Adrafinil under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, a legislation that governs the regulation of drugs. This means that it is not regulated. Adrafinil’s legal status and nootropics in general, nevertheless remains in grey area. It is lawful for purchase by British residents, but only for personal use. In the U.S, however, the drug is currently legal and can be bought, prescription free, as an alternative to Modafinil. Though its manufactured moniker Olmifon was discontinued in 2011, Adrafinil itself can still be purchased easily online.
Why do they differ?
Modafinil and Adrafinil are two of the most popular stimulants available. Though both offer similar if not identical cognitive benefits, there are key distinctions between both. Chemically speaking, the structures of both drugs are very similar: Adrafinil Structure It is, however, with the body’s processing of each drug that differences become most apparent. Modafinil is processed through metabolic activity occurring mainly in the liver. Lesser contributions to the metabolising process are made through the activity of the enzyme cytochrome P450 (CYP). Cytochrome p-450 (often abbreviated “CYP”) is a class of enzymes that is involved in the metabolism of many medications and is located primarily in the liver. But, what exactly are enzymes? They exist in living organisms and catalyze specific biochemical reactions within the body. At the beginning of a reaction process, molecules exist called ‘substrates’. The enzyme converts these into ‘products’. All metabolic processes in cells require enzymes to react within the body at rates fast enough to sustain life. Adrafinil differs because it is changed into Modafinil in the liver. This means that it relies on greater enzyme activity to process correctly and efficiently. The conversion process of Adrafinil and Modafinil sees the former breaking down into the latter as a compound. This is how it is metabolized. Enzymes are relied upon more during the metabolic process of Adrafinil. As mentioned briefly in the metabolism of Modafinil, the enzyme involved in metabolizing Adrafinil when it reaches the liver is Cytochrome p-450. How quickly the liver is able to convert Adrafinil is dependent upon metabolic rate and the efficiency of the liver overall. Two people of the same sex, similar age and weight can take the same dose of Adrafinil but achieve very different results. In necessitating a more rigorous metabolism process, the most profound difference between Modafinil and Adrafinil is that the latter requires the greater use of Cytochrome p-450. Over time, if the drug is not taken cyclically, such enzymes can build up in the liver with potentially damaging effects on the organ as a whole.
Adrafinil vs Modafinil Dosage
For Adrafinil, it as advised to dose between 600 to 1200mg per day. It is further advised, as with the majority of supplements, to begin on a low dose, only increasing the amount after recognizing your own body’s reaction and tolerance. Adrafinil should not be taken in the afternoon and evening to prevent a sleepless night. Ideally, it should be taken 3 times a week and for no longer than five months. This is primarily to prevent side effects, tolerance and the build-up of enzymes in the liver. Examine.com state that Adrafinil’s recommended dosage range is vast, ranging from 600 to 1,200mg. BodhiSvaha on erowid.org explained their willingness to take both small doses and larger ones of Adrafinil:
After extensive experimentation with dosage, I have settled on taking 300mg when I wake up and another 300 mg in the early afternoon. There does not seem to be much, if any, habituation or tolerance created by Adrafinil.Occasionally I will take doses up to 1200 mg when a high degree of concentration is required. I have found this dose to be very effective at potentiating and improving the tryptamine experience, in particular. I find tryps sometimes bring a feeling of lethargy or body load with some cognitive dullness. Adrafinil counters this effect very nicely.
Here it is evident that, despite there being a large range of recommended doses for Adrafinil, all of them are safe. Whatever you choose within that range is dependent on your desired alertness and bodily tolerance. Reddit user ssitimefill explains the necessity of slowly upping Adrafinil dosage, as well as suggesting why a higher dose than Modafinil is required:
To my knowledge it is not established how what proportion of adrafinil is broken down into modafinil and what proportion into modafinilic acid.This proportion likely varies person to person, and also by dose. Some studies have reported adrafinil more potent at lower doses.The general psychological effect of adrafinil depends not only on the quantity converted into modafinil but the rate of this conversion.300 mg of modafinil from adrafinil is not likely to produce an identical effect from 300 mg of modafinil.Basically there is no way to determine optimum dose of adrafinil other than trial and error.The best procedure is to start with low doses (measured via scale) and slowly increase dose until you reach the optimal, then sub-optimal dose. When you have reached sub-optimal dose (too much adrafinil) you can deduce what dose is optimal for you.
Because Modafinil does not transform in the liver, it generally requires lesser dosage to reach its optimum effect. Modafinil is typically sold in 100 mg or 200 mg tablets. The latter option is more popular due to its greater availability. 200 mg is indeed the recommended dose, to be taken once per day, usually during the morning. It may be taken with or without food. (nootriment.com) Some recommend starting with an initial intake of 100 mg Modafinil dosage. This helps with accustoming the body to the drug itself. An anonymous writer on erowid.org posted his first use of 100mg Modafinil, describing its positive effects:
And today I tried modafinil 100 mg for the first time. I took it at around 10:45 AM today and it is now 4:35 PM. My experience has been much like those of others herein described– initial buzziness (~1 hr after I took the pill) that lasted about as long. But for the past 4 hours, I have been just plain awake. I have not succumbed to the usual desire to take a nap in the afternoons despite the near-90-degree heat, which usually puts me right to sleep. I have had no such desire in fact. I am not jittery or having unusual thoughts, etc.
It is also possible to take higher doses. Up to 400 mg per day has been shown to be very well-tolerated. Pino on drugs-forum tried a variety of dosages and provides some succinct information of the results: Combinations:
200 mg modafinil +caffeine: Pleasant vibe, easy and fast thinking. Able to solve sudokus a lot quicker. The bus driver becomes more self reassured in conversations and is able to focus more than 16 hours. Sleep quality is ok. (bp: 130/80)200 mg modafinil + too much caffeine (4 cups of coffee): Anxiousness and some hypertension kicks in here. (bp: 140/93) Concentration is less than optimal in this region.400 mg modafinil + normal caffeine: Nice euphoria, but can also turn into anxiousness.
It is clear that the recommended doses are speculative and dependent on personal accounts of drug use. There are certainly more user reviews around the internet that explain individual experiences of alternating dosage amounts. There is, of course, still the question of the differences in dosage between Modafinil and Adrafinil. Jjhurley on Reddit discussed the differences in dosage between both:
… most people tell me 300mg of adra is comparable to just 100mg of moda. Whether your ratio or this other ratio is correct doesn’t make too much a difference, but I have been taking 600mg of adra and don’t want to lose any potency. Is this to say I should go with 300-400mg of moda? If so, that’s a little upsetting because I was really hoping to have equal, if not better, experiences on just 200mg of moda.
ProfWiki agreed that Adrafinil should be taken in higher dosages than Modafinil:
I take 600 mg in order to get effects. This is equivalent to about 200 mg of modafinil. I think throwf0 read you as saying modafinil since he mentioned modafinil. Modafinil is a lot stronger than adrafinil. 150 mg of adrafinil would be about like 50 mg of adrafinil.Anyway, like I said, 50 mg of Adrafinil is far too lose to be effective. 50 mg of MODAfinil might work okay for some but they typically are just breaking up a standard 100/200 mg dose.Being that Adrafinil works by metabolizing into Modafinil, and that as a rule of thumb 1/3 of Adrafinil turns into modafinil, a 50 mg dose of Adrafinil would be just roughly 16-17 mg of modafinil. There wouldn’t be any effects from such a low level dose.
Adrafinil vs Provigil
Let us first make one distinction: Adrafinil = generic drug Provigil = brand name of Modafinil It is often questioned what the difference between Provigil and Adrafinil is. However, the former is simply a branded name for the generic drug Modafinil, which, as we have now found, is the metabolite of Adrafinil. So long as users are acquiring pure generic versions of Adrafinil, then the same effects as Provigil will be felt and the advised dosage will essentially be identical. It is therefore not unusual for potential users to question the differences between Provigil and Adrafinil. Moreover, it is certainly not unreasonable to question their differences. For instance, internet user Shatneresque questioned the difference between Modafinil and Provigil, which are the same drug, asking:
My pharmacy sent me a email saying I can now replace my Provigil ($125 a month) with the generic version and they need my okay to do so.Before I say yes and say the money, I want to know if anyone has noticed any differences. I am very happy with the provigil and have been taking it for several years.
This query was answered by Serpens:
It appears that Cephalon, the maker of Provigil, has been purchased by Teva, titan generic manufacturer. There are currently three manufacturers selling a generic labeled ‘modafinil’ : Cephalon (brand holder), Teva, and Par. All three are using the same brand name NDA license on file with the FDA. In addition, Elsevier’s Clinical Pharmacology has images and references available for the generic product being shipped for all three drug companies.They’re all the same pill. Images of all three products show a white oblong tablet with “Provigil” on one side, and the strength on the other. All products have the same inactive ingredients.
Queries like this prove that caution is imperative when deciding on which supplement to use. This is especially true if you are a first time user or are, like Shatneresque, accustomed to using one particular brand such as Provigil. Researching alternatives and finding the most information about whatever drug you are choosing is vital if you are to select the right one for you. Awareness is the key and there is no harm in asking questions that, to you, may sound obvious once they are answered.
Provigil was originally manufactured by Cephalon, the same company behind the previously branded version of Adrafinil (Olmifon). Business editor Dell Poncet writes of how, in 1999, interest for both Cephalon and Provigil was taking off, with registered quarterly sales of $10.7 million. Being among the leading biopharmaceutical companies in the world, Cephalon flourished. In 2011, it was acquired by Teva, the largest generic drug manufacturer in the world for a huge $6.8 billion (read more here). There is little surprise, then, that Provigil is sold at quite a cost. A 30-day supply of Provigil 200mg pills can cost as much as $1500. Buyers in the UK can therefore expect to pay even more if the pharmacy offers world-wide shipping. Since branded Modafinil is so expensive, Adrafinil is clearly the best alternative. The latter drug does not come attached to a manufactured title, and is inexpensive yet easily attainable. What is more, it can be bought prescription-free online or by phone. There are plenty of legitimate outlets stocking Adrafinil and these can be accessed at the click of a button. If economizing is one aspect of importance, then Adrafinil is certainly the best choice.
Modafinil in India
More importantly health-wise, though, is the scary possibility of purchasing a dodgy-version of branded Modafinil online. With the cost of Provigil being so high, it is unsurprising that many prospective users look for a cheaper alternative for their first time trying the drug. Many turn to the internet’s grey market, where there is a lingering risk of being ripped off with tampered drugs. This is where extra caution and care should be applied. Once users began contemplating off-label equivalents, international pharmacy websites quickly took the opportunity to sell these kinds of drugs. The most popular location from which many internet users buy unbranded Modafinil is India. Sources of the drug in India do not require strict quality control, nor are prescriptions required by users. In fact, there is much information to be considered with regard to India’s counterfeit drugs market. This article on New York Times discusses how:
India’s drug industry is one of the country’s most important economic engines, exporting $15 billion in products annually, and some of its factories are world-class, virtually undistinguishable from their counterparts in the West. But others suffer from serious quality control problems. The World Health Organization estimated that one in five drugs made in India are fakes. A 2010 survey of New Delhi pharmacies found that 12 percent of sampled drugs were spurious.
Meanwhile, this article on safemedsonline.org attests to the New York Times’ discussion, stating that:
The Food and Drug Administration recently conducted a series ofraidsin India to uncover counterfeit drugs. The raids yielded large quantities of substandard medicines and resulted in several arrests. However, in India, the penalties for making and selling counterfeit medicines are minimal, the convictions are rare, and the profits are enormous. Since the raids late last year, the problem has only gotten worse.
Alarm bells should definitely ring here. Without quality control, many drugs that appear on international websites do not contain legitimate ingredients. It is a huge gamble to assume your purchased pills are pure or authentic. There’s a great possibility that you might not experience the proper effects of the medication and there is serious potential that you may have toxic reactions to the ingredients in fake versions of the drug. Some websites and online Nootropics communities maintain lists of verified and trustworthy Modafinil vendors, but such vendors do not generally stay on the lists for long. In many cases, a trusted supplier can end up sending out a fake or ineffective batch of pills even after you have developed a long-standing relationship with them. It is almost impossible to protect against this risk. There is really only one sensible alternative if you find the price of Provigil unreasonable, or if you are contemplating buying potentially contaminated off-label versions from India. Users should purchase Adrafinil from a reputable supplier instead, rather than paying the very serious costs of purchasing from an unreliable source abroad.
Adrafinil vs Modafinil forum
There are many reviews across the internet on individual preferences: Adrafinil or Modafinil. It is all, of course, subjective to user experience. Whilst some remain skeptical towards the newer of the two drugs, Adrafinil, there are huge amounts of successful reviews to be considered. On reddit, jjhurley writes:
Long story short, today is just my 3rd day using adrafinil and I’m impressed with the results so far.I keep reading from people who’ve experienced both adra & moda is that they prefer modafinil. To me it is surprising there would be a whole lot of difference given what we know about adrafinil converting to modafinil once in your system. I understand the conversion takes time but I wouldn’t think that to make a significant impact to different effects.
It is also important to remember that Adrafinil is converted into Modafinil once in the liver. Many users therefore experience the same results with both drugs, and are positive in their opinions of both. DoyouknowmyPW on Reddit concurs, stating that:
I’ve been using Adrafinil and Modafinil for a few weeks now during the workweek. 100-150mg for Modafinil, 200-270 for Adrafinil. I’ve never noticed any painful side-effects, might just be a coincidence. Sharp pain like that could be trapped gas (of course I am not a physician though!).It does help greatly staying more alert during the day. Before I would have issues some days where I am truly struggling to keep my eyes open, especially during meetings. I’ve fallen asleep at least twice for a brief second because my eyes were just too heavy. Since I’ve been taking the morning dose that sleepiness has gone away and I am now on a better sleep schedule because I feel tired when I’m suppose to.
Some users speak of branded versions of the drugs. For example, Akoward on drugs-forum writes:
Recently got a hold of some Nuvigil. Have had previous experience with Olmifon (Adrafinil). As has been said before its much more potent at lower dose that Adrafinil. I only need 1/2 a pill to do what 2x300mg Adrafinils were doing for me. I took a whole Nuvigil the first time and was more productive in that single day that I had been in ages. Got all my work done, worked on personal projects… it was amazing. I will say that some of the physical side effects were a little troubling (ever present tightness in the collarbone to middle neck area, massive restless legs)
It is important to see that with Akoward’s review, despite him alternating to the branded Armodafinil, side-effects were still experienced. This goes to show that Adrafinil, though not manufactured under a moniker, is no less competent in generating the excellent results that might be expected from those drugs which sound more ‘professional’.
Adrafinil vs Modafinil vs Armodafinil
Like Adrafinil and Modafinil, Armodafinil is a stimulant used to combat fatigue. Introduced in 2007, Armodafinil appears under brand names such as Nuvigil, Artvigil, and Waklert. It is purportedly more effective at lower doses than its relatives Adrafinil and Modafinil. Armodafinil is an enantiopure drug. Enantiopure drugs contain only one of the enantiomers (spoken about earlier), R or S. The R enantiomer is longer acting and is most responsible for the effects of Modafinil specifically. Since the S enantiomer is not as strong, Armodafinil’s dosage is therefore lower. Most doses are 150mg compared to Modafinil’s 200mg standard dose. Whilst the effects last for roughly the same time, Armodafinil takes longer to reach its peak than Modafinil, and therefore even longer than Adrafinil. This is simply because the S enantiomer reacts and leaves the body faster. Remember, Armodafinil does not have the S enantiomer, whereas Modafinil does. Adrafinil does, too, because Modafinil is a component within it. Because of this, users find that the effects of Armodafinil take longer to make themselves apparent – a potential disadvantage for prospective users. So, how is Armodafinil processed? Dopamine is a compound existing as neurotransmitter within the body. It is also precursor of other substances including adrenaline. Armodafinil is an indirect dopamine receptor agonist. What this essentially means, then, is that Armodafinil provokes the dopamine levels in the body. Armodafinil is metabolized in much the similar way as Modafinil. It relies on amide hydrolysis primarily, and enzyme activity from by cytochrome P450 secondly. Amide Hydrolysis refers to the reaction with water of amides – a compound) As a consequence, this means that is does not rely as much on heavy enzyme activity in the liver. Adrafinil does. This presents further difference that may be considered by potential users. However, it is important to remember to stick to dosage guidance. If taken properly, and often cyclically, Adrafinil is no more threatening to the liver than Modafinil or Armodafinil. Because Armodafinil, Modafinil and Adrafinil are all very similar in terms of effect, there is much discussion about which is the best. With regard to Modafinil and Armodafinil specifically, some may assume that because small dosages are needed for the latter that it is more efficient. However, it is important to remember individual sensitivity levels. Different drugs can have different reactions for different people. Potency is therefore not the only factor; the personal experience of using either Armodafinil or Modafinil is equally important. A trial and error approach may be necessary, but, of course, extensive research to find the best possible supplement for you is paramount. In undertaking research, then, you may discover information that suits your needs. For example, it is proposed that, unlike Modafinil, Armodafinil will not actually disturb your existing sleep patterns. Modafinil users might agree a good night’s sleep is difficult to achieve depending on the dosage. Reddit user guitar1560 states that
I took 50mg two days in a row twice. Couldn’t sleep well the second night both times
Whereas SequenceConvenience writes
I’ve experienced pretty strong sleep changes while taking modafinil, but nothing that has been negative. I actually seem to need less sleep, at least in the sense that it is very easy for me to get out of bed the day after taking modafinil. Then again, I also don’t seem to have much in the way of dreams during those nights.
Armodafinil does not impact sleep pattern. However, with SequenceConvenience’s review, it is clear that some find this a positive effect of Modafinil while others, like guitar1560, may be disappointed. Respective costs of the drugs might further influence your decision. KimberCT on Longe City tried both Armodafinil and Modafinil, but was swayed somewhat by the price of Nuvigil (the branded name of Armodafinil):
Currently taking 250mg armodafinil daily. To be honest, I kind of prefer modafinil. It seems to have a little more of a quick kick to it. Probably that isomer with a short half life peaking. Other than that, I can’t tell the difference between Nuvigil and modafinil (Sun Pharma). I’d probably have continued taking modafinil, but Cephalon has jacked the price since Nuvigil was FDA approved. With an Rx, Provigil is twice the price of Nuvigil. Their way of getting everyone onto Nuvigil before Provigil’s patent expires.
Adrafinil, meanwhile, can be obtained very cheaply online because it does not exist under a manufactured name. Nevertheless, many of these drugs are safe to use even if they lack a moniker like Provigil or Nuvigil. To stop concerns of the legitimacy of your purchased drug, always ask that your online manufacturer provides a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) on demand. This means that the substance batch has undergone a third-party laboratory analysis to ensure that your purchased drug matches its label and is not contaminated. A common side-effect of Adrafinil is that the urine can smell different after ingestion of the drug. This is because one of Adrafinil’s metabolites contains a sulphur-based compound, and sulphur is strong smelling in itself. However, these criticisms are not limited to Adrafinil alone and it should not sway potential users away from this particular drug. Modafinil has also been found to change the odor of urine. For example, PhysicsMaestro on Longe city queries:
I’ve been using modafinil (modalert) for about 8 months now, and regularly noticed a distinct smell of my urine whenever taking it. However, with this armodafinil, I don’t seem to notice it, which worries me a bit (i.e., not really what it states to be). Has anyone else noticed this difference between armodafinil and modafinil? I thought maybe the S-enantiomer could be metabolized and excreted quicker, thus resulting in an early onset smell, but I am just guessing.
The difference could easily be due to one of the excipients of the tablet, not the active ingredient. It’s also possible that only the S-enantiomer causes the smell, and of course, there’s the possibility that either these pills or the old ones didn’t actually contain modafinil. Sometimes they contain caffeine or dimethylamylamine or other stimulants, either mixed with modafinil or completely replacing it.
PhysicsMaestro thereafter concurrs:
I thought the odorous urine was ubiquitous to all variants of modafinil, resulting from its metabolites. But I guess the smell could be dependent on the enantiomer. I am willing to assume that whatever enzyme metabolizes modafinil to modafinil acid would leave its chirality intact. I don’t think it would be the excipients since the smell is so widely reported with different sources (and the modafinil has a sulfiyl group, so)
Nor does Armodafinil escape the urine issues. An anonymous writer on Erowid.org wrote:
Oh, and the pill tastes awful. Don’t let it get stuck in your mouth. And my pee starts to smell like it, too, but I get used to it
It is therefore important not to be selective of criticism based on what drug you have been swayed by. If you read that Modafinil is apparently “safer” because it does not rely on rampant enzyme activity, then do remember to include other issues such as cost-efficiency and, of course, other side-effects that might become more apparent than rare liver problems. These side-effects might include nausea, chest-pain or a faster heart rate (nhs.uk). Adrafinil stands out as the most cost-effective, and, though it has been reported to alter urine odor, it is not alone. Modafinil, the more expensive, and Armodafinil, with a longer reaction time, also generate similar side-effects. As well as reviews on specific effects of Adrafinil, Armodafinil or Modafinil, there are plenty of general overviews to be found around the internet. On Reddit, BitcoinOperatedGirl writes of her experience:
I tried the adrafinil first, starting with a low dose of 200mg one morning. I prepared a capsule and put it in a baggie next to my pillow before I went to sleep. When my alarm clock rang in the morning, I swallowed the capsule, silenced the alarm clock, and went back to sleep. I was expecting the stimulatory effect to eventually wake me up, as a caffeine pill would, but I ended up sleeping for two more hours. I felt a little disappointed after getting up and not feeling any stimulation, so I decided to add an extra 400mg to the mix.The rest of the day, I was in a fairly good mood. I thought that I was maybe a little more energetic and motivated than usual. I was fairly productive and I worked out. The effect wasn’t what I expected, however. I’ve read people on here talking about feeling wired, and “laser beam focus”, but a whole 600mg of adrafinil felt nothing close to what I imagined (I guess I imagined it would feel like a mild dose of ritalin or something). On the upside, I experienced no substantial anxiety, whereas all the amphetamine-like drugs make me very uncomfortably anxious (I really can’t stand them, they feel disgusting to me). I didn’t really feel a crash and I went to bed at my normal hour.I’m experimenting with adrafinil again today. I took 800mg this time. I was feeling particularly tired this morning (cripplingly tired, lethargic really). I definitely feel more energetic now. I’ve gotten some work done, I’m feeling the drive to write walls of text on reddit and I’m going to have a workout in a few minutes. I don’t expect to have any motivational issues today. Maybe I’ll even cook something fun. Only unfortunate side-effect seems to be a mild headache, but advil seems to be taking care of that.I also tried armodafinil a week ago. Took a small 75mg dose in the morning. Same setup as with adrafinil. I also fell back to sleep for 2 hours. I felt pretty anxious that day and also got a headache. I can’t quite be sure the armodafinil is to blame but I suspect it is. Seems much more anxiety-inducing than adrafinil, which is unfortunate given that it seems adrafinil is worse for your liver. Armodafinil is probably just not for me.
Nezxon on LongeCity meanwhile states that:
I’m taking 75mg Adrafinil (Olmifon) twice daily and I haven’t experienced any side effects. I’d like to give Armodafinil a try, perhaps even safer in the long-term than Modafinil is.
These kinds of reviews certainly help to build a solid picture of each drug’s story. Undertaking research like this to decide on which drug is preferable to you is definitely something you should embark on before picking at random a supplement based on one review.
Adrafinil vs Modafinil reddit
The only notable difference in reviews between Modafinil and Adrafinil is that the latter takes longer to take effect. For example, justmodz1 stated that:
adrafinil is the precursor of modafinil in that it came first and led to the discovery of modafinil in fact adrafinil turns into modafinil in the body due to breakdown of it molecules which actually means that the two have the same effects but adrafinil takes longer to take effect.
While KPC100 agreed that:
Adrafinil gets turned into Modafinil in your system. Because of this, you need a much larger dose and it takes longer to take effect.
Although it does have a longer reaction time, this certainly shouldn’t be a downfall of Adrafinil. It is simply a case that Adrafinil’s chemical processing takes a little longer. However, once complete, the results are just as effective as those found with Modafinil. Take into consideration, also, that Adrafinil will certainly stimulate, energize and ultimately shake you awake. The seemingly longer period of time before this happens will soon become irrelevant when the benefits are reaped. Further Reddit reviews compare other aspects of Adrafinil and Modafinil. Jjhurley, commenting on the actual nature of each drug, states that:
I keep reading from people who’ve experienced both adra & moda is that they prefer modafinil. To me it is surprising there would be a whole lot of difference given what we know about adrafinil converting to modafinil once in your system. I understand the conversion takes time but I wouldn’t think that to make a significant impact to different effects.
While the same user goes on to discuss issues of costing, in the end suggesting that, in terms of price, they would definitely prefer Adrafinil:
I was really hoping to have equal, if not better, experiences on just 200mg of moda. The reason I’d like to not take more than that is simply cost. At $1.50-2.00 per 200mg pill of moda (prices based off the quantities I’d be ordering as well as variation in supplier prices) it’s too costly to have to take twice that for my own personal budget. To be honest, even at $1.50-2.00 per pill/200mg is already high for my budget.I can get 50g of adrafinil for $98 which comes out to up to 50% cheaper a single moda dose/pill of 200mg. If conversion ratios are right and I’d need two pills or 400mg of moda though then my adra would be 75% cheaper.
There are plenty of important aspects to consider when choosing between Modafinil or Adrafinil. Firstly, selecting the safest and most reliable drug should be of paramount interest. Whereas Adrafinil is often tested by third parties and is shipped nationally rather than across sees, Modafinil (both branded and unbranded versions) is often left untested and sent from India. Quality control is a big issue of concern for international pharmacies and should definitely guide your final decision. Pricing is also important to consider. Although you might think you’re getting a better deal by choosing a cheaper off-label version from India, it is still not as easy to buy Modafinil as it is Adrafinil. Most venders of Modafinil do not accept Paypal. This service offers secure buyer protection. With the option of a legitimate, nationally supplied alternative in Adrafinil, it is illogical to risk your bank account details instead – just to purchase a drug that will likely be contaminated and unsafe
Guide to Buying Modafinil in Australia Legally: What You Need to Know.

In this comprehensive guide, I’ll break down everything you need to know about getting your hands on the world’s most popular smart drug while living down under. But here’s the gist of it… While the nootropic may be technically seem as prescription-only in Australia, you can easily andlegally buy Modafinil online– it doesn’t matter if you have a doctor’s prescription or not. While I’m not from Australia, I know the smart drug game inside and out. I’ve been using nootropics for nearly half a decade now. I know which online pharmacies sell legit nootropics and which ones will send you bunk. My only goal is to get you the best nootropics in the world without an issue. So, I’ll tell you how to get Modafinil in Australia without hassle. It’s pretty easy these days. You don’t even need a prescription to do it. This guide is long and detailed to ensure I don’t leave out anything for those curious about Australia and Modafinil. As always, I must hit y’all with a quick disclaimer before we begin…
What is Modafinil?
Before we dive too deep into how to buy Modafinil in Australia, let’s discuss what the smart drug is and why so many people love it. As the world’s most popular smart drug, Modafinil has gained famed as the premier cognitive enhancer on the market. Most people, including many Australians, find Modafinil offers benefits like:
12+ hours of intense focus
Increased overall productivity
Enhanced cognitive functions
Improved memory retention
Inability to sleep or feel fatigue, i.e. great for all-nighters
Overall, Modafinil makes you feel like you can accomplish anything and everything you want – while you’re on it. It’s not the “Limitless” pill, but it’s pretty darn close. Originally, Modafinil was developed as a pharmaceutical drug under the name Provigil. Created in France during the late 1980s, the drug quickly rose to popularity as doctors began prescribing it for common ailments like (Source):
Shift Sleep Disorder
In the late 1990s, Provigil made its way to the United States. And before you knew it, Provigil was being used for off-the-label uses. Grad students and CEOs in major cities like NYC and Boston quickly figured out that Modafinil gave them a competitive advantage over the competition. These hustlers could pop 200 mg of Modafinil and focus for 12+ or pull an all-nighter without any issue. The smart drug craze had officially begun, and Modafinil was at the forefront of it! Things haven’t slowed down since then. It didn’t take long for Modafinil to surpass Adderall as the world’s most popular study drug, either. Now people are looking to get their hands on the smart drug from all around the world. There’s a reason you’re curious about how to buy Modafinil in Australia. Why? Because Modafinil just works, mate.
Is Modafinil Legal in Australia?
Now, I’m no lawyer. Nor am I a legal scholar. So, this section about the legalities of Modafinil in Australia should not be construed as anything but hyperbole. This is NOT advice. Is Modafinil legal in Australia? Yes and no. Honestly, it’s a grey area. Here’s the simplest way to break things down: If you have narcolepsy or severe sleep apnea, your Australian doctor can legally prescribe you brand name Modafinil – generally Modavigil, as Provigil in Australia isn’t that common. With this prescription, you can then go to a pharmacy in Australia and legally purchase Modafinil over-the-counter in the country with that prescription. For those of us unable to get a prescription for Provigil in Australia, buying from a pharmacy is technically illegal. It’s also impossible. Why? Because no Australian pharmacist is risking their career to sell you pharmaceutical-grade smart drugs under-the-counter. TL DR: If you want to buy Modafinil in Australia, you’ll need to get a prescription from a local doctor for a commonly prescribed ailment. Then go to the pharmacy. This is the laws regarding Modafinil in the country. However, there’s a little bit more than meets the eye here. The laws and legalities surrounding Modafinil in Australia and how to get your hands on it require a little due diligence. Which is why I need to discuss… P.S: I will be discussing the legalities of shipping Modafinil to Australia below…but you needn’t be worried there.
Drug Schedules in Australia
Australia drug scheduling laws come into play when talking Provigil in Australia. In the country, pharmaceutical and street drugs are classified through the Therapeutic Goods Act, or TGA. The drugs are classified in groups 1-10 based on how dangerous they and the potential for abuse. According to the TGA, the world’s most popular smart drug is considered a schedule 4 medication. As such, there are some limitations when buying Modafinil in the country. Here’s a brief breakdown of drug schedules in Australia:
Schedule 1–Purposely left blank by the government
Schedule 2 –Generally safe pharmaceutical drugs, including: Paracetamol, Dextromethorphan, Non-sedating antihistamines, and similar substances
Schedule 3 –Safe pharmaceutical drugs, but ones the Australian government prefers to track and manage, including: Codeine, Pseudoephedrine, Salbutamol, and the like
Schedule 4 –Prescription medications that have potential for addiction, including Modafinil, Benzodiazepines, SSRIs, and more
Schedule 5 –Potentially dangerous compounds for humans, including methanol and some heavy metals
Schedule 6 –These are poisons according to the TGA, and include: Ammonia, Barium salts, and more
Schedule 7 –Dangerous drugs and poisons that generally aren’t sold to the public without special considerations, like Thallium, Colecalciferol, and similar substances
Schedule 8 –Controlled drugs that require a special license to distribute and are heavily monitored by the Australian government, including: Morphine, Oxycodone, and Amphetamine
Schedule 9 –Prohibited drugs or street drugs that are not legally sold in the country, including cocaine, DMT, and marijuana
It should be clear by now, but if it’s not… Drug scheduling in Australia is a complex matter. For example, let’s look at Modafinil. Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug in Australia, as the government seems to think that Modafinil offers some potential for abuse and addiction. While seemingly true in theory due to the active mechanisms in Modafinil, the AU government may be reaching when considering Modafinil as an addictive substance. There have been very few Provigil addiction cases ever reported or recorded. For example, here’s one study talking about a rare case of Modafinil dependence. The smart drug simply isn’t addictive in a manner most individuals use the word. You can take Modafinil multiple times a week without ever feeling a Modafinil “craving” or “withdraw” before or after. Still, Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug in Australia…and that won’t be changing for sometime.
How to Get a Modafinil Prescription in Australia
Australia is a decidedly developed nation. This shouldn’t come as any surprise. As such, the sale and consumption of pharmaceutical drugs generally requires a prescription from a registered doctor in the country. This is certainly the case in Australia. To purchase Provigil in Australia from a pharmacy, you will need a prescription from a doctor. As previously discussed, there is absolutely no workaround here. Australian pharmacists cannot be negotiated with. So, how do you get a Modafinil prescription in Australia? One that allows you to purchase Provigil or Modavigil from a pharmacy… You head over to a doctor and beg for mercy. Just kidding. Generally, Australian doctors only prescribe Modafinil for patients who have narcolepsy – which is not exactly a medical issue one can “fake” or lie about. Narcolepsy is a condition where one falls asleep at all times of the day – often without warning. It can be potentially dangerous, especially when operating a motor vehicle. If you have narcolepsy, just go to the doctor and get a Modafinil prescription. No need to read this guide. For the rest of us, we’re left with two options when getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia is of concern. The first one involves going to a sleep specialist and complaining of excessive daytime sleepiness and drowsiness. You can blame the fatigue on sleep apnea or shift sleep disorder. The doctor should order a day-time sleep study. Based upon these results, the doctor could then prescribe Modafinil due to excessive daytime sleepiness. That’s the last 100% legal way of getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia. Luckily…There are other ways to get your hands on Modafinil while living down under. Ways that certainly are NOT illegal. The easiest? You can buy Modafinil online and have it shipped to Australia.
– Is this 100% legal? –
Again, I’m no lawyer. But I’ve yet to hear about anyone having legitimate legal issues importing a Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drug for personal use – which I’ll be discussing furthermore below. I’d surmise the worst that happens is your package gets seized by customs and you get a full refund from the online Modafinil pharmacy you purchased from. Even this is rare! See, the best Modafinil online vendors guarantee their shipments to Australia. This means you either get your Modafinil or you get a full refund or reshipment. Your choice. Basically, you have no risk. If customs confiscates your package, you get your money back or the vendor sends you another order ASAP. Which brings me to my next point…
Where to Buy Modafinil Online in Australia | 2020 Guide
You may be wondering where you can buy Modafinil online in Australia. Well, you’re in luck. That’s where I come in. I’ve bought from over a half dozen Modafinil vendors over the years. I know who has legit product, fast shipping times, and reliable customer services. Plus, I know which pharmacy has the fastest shipping to Australia! If you want to get buy Modafinil online from down under, the vendors below make it pretty easy. So without further ado, here’s where to buy Modafinil in Australia:
I’ve quickly become a huge fan of BuyModa. These guys offer impressive customer service, massive Bitcoin discounts, and guaranteed delivery.

Plus, you get 3o free Modafinil tablets with every order over $100 USD from Buy Moda. To even further increase your savings here. Most orders from Buy Moda will arrive within 6-14 days while in Australia. That’s pretty quick! Overall, Buy Moda is a great Modafinil vendor for Australians — one that offers incredibly low prices, fast shipping, and some of the best customer service in the industry.
If you’re buying Modafinil and smart drugs in Australia, then Modafinil XL is a great place to check out too. These guys offer great prices, some of the best customer services you’ll find when buying Modafinil, and rapid shipping to Australia. Modafinil XL offers 7-10 day delivery in Australia. That’s fast.

Overall… I couldn’t recommend Modafinil XL enough to Australians looking to buy nootropics!
Shipping Modafinil | Australia Edition
It’s easy to assume that shipping Modafinil to Australia would cause issues with customs throughout the country. That doesn’t appear to be the case. Here’s why: Modafinil may be a schedule 4 drug in Australia, but possession may not be considered completely illegal. There’s a public list of controlled substances in the country published by The Office of Drug Control in Australia. The list contains any and substances that are banned from importation into the country without permission. Modafinil is conveniently not on this list! Aka shipping Modafinil to Australia for personal use is not technically illegal. The TGA does state that prescription drugs purchases online require a copy of the prescription from the seller. If your Modafinil order is confiscated upon importing, the Modafinil can be held until a prescription is submitted. If you don’t submit the prescription within a certain timeframe, the contents of the package will be destroyed. But here’s the thing… This rarely, if ever, happens. Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drugs like Modafinil generally make it past customs security without a single issue or problem. It’s why the best Modafinil vendors offer guaranteed delivery to the country without even thinking about it. Customs officials in Australia are more concerned with illicit drugs, like cocaine and heroin, than an individual trying to boost cognition through pharmaceutical drugs and nootropics. As of writing, I’m unaware of a SINGLE instance of someone having legal trouble for importing Modafinil for personal use in Australia. I’m no lawyer, but you needn’t worry about buying Modafinil and Armodafinil online in Australia. Furthermore… Most Modafinil orders in Australia will arrive within 5-15 business days – depending on the vendor selected, product chosen, and location within the country. Pretty quick if you ask me.
Generic Modafinil and Armodafinil in Australia
If you get a prescription from the doctor in Australia, you’ll be able to buy Modafinil from a pharmacy in the country. Once you have a prescription, you can go to the pharmacy and get Modafinil under names like:
These are brand name Modafinil products sold in pharmacies in Australia. For Australians looking to order Modafinil online, common generic Modafinil products include:
These generic forms of Modafinil all do a damn good job. In fact, generic Modafinil and Armodafinil compare well with brand name products. There’s not much of a difference between Provigil and Modalert. Plus, after testing all four of these generic products, I have a few recommendations for Australians and those living in the country. Modalert is the stronger generic Modafinil brand in Australia. I highly recommend it. Modvigil is a cheap alternative for Australians looking for Modafinil. When looking for Modafinil’s little cousin Armodafinil, I prefer Waklert. However, Artvigil is a little bit cheaper. Overall, I stick with Modalert and Waklert for good reason. I’ve found them to be superior products and recommend them for anyone looking to buy Modafinil online in Australia.
Adrafinil in Australia, Prescription-Free Alternative
Now, some of you may be looking for a 100% legal alternative to Modafinil. While I’m confident you won’t have any issues getting your hands on Modafinil while living in Australia, many people want another option. I get that, which is why I recommend Adrafinil, too. Adrafinil is a 100% legal and over-the-counter smart drug. It’s a legit Modafinil alternative. Why? Because the body essentially converts Adrafinil to the active ingredient in Modafinil after ingestion (Source). As such, it takes a little bit longer for Adrafinil to kick in than Modafinil. The smart drug also isn’t nearly as strong as Modafinil due to how it works. Overall, Adrafinil is an ok option if you don’t want to use Modafinil. But Modafinil is the king of smart drugs for a reason – it’s the best thing out there.
If you’re curious about other nootropics in Australia and potential Modafinil alternatives, I’ve got a couple more ideas for you. Just know that Modafinil is the ‘King’ and Armodafinil in Australia is the ‘Queen’ when talking nootropics. Hell, Adrafinil is the ‘Prince’ to take that little analogy one step further. There’s still some other nootropics in Australia that can be worthwhile alternatives. Here’s a few of my favorites:
Mind Lab Pro: I tried this smart drug for the first time recently. Let’s just say I was more than IMPRESSED. You’ll find Modafinil-like or should I say “-lite” cognitive enhancement with Mind Lab Pro. It’s one of, it not my top, over-the-counter nootropic right now. And it’s ideal to “cycle” with Modafinil. Highly recommended.
Noopept: As one of the most powerful over-the-counter nootropics in Australia, I’ve found Noopept to be a potent substance through testing. It’s no Modafinil, but you’ll find powerful cognitive benefits here. Powder form recommended.
Sulbutiamine: For my final nootropic recommendation for Australians, we’ve got Sulbutiamine. This stuff works for around 5-7+ hours and offers solid cognitive enhancement. If you’re concerned Modafinil will be too strong, this is a good starting nootropic.
The Verdict? | Australia Edition
That’s about it, mate. Pretty much everything you’d need to know about how to buy Modafinil in Australia. From legalities to down under, we covered it throughout this entertaining guide. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about buying Modafinil online in Australia, sound off below and I’ll get back to you with some type of answer.
Get bitcoin start paying for your nootropics with it. Your credit card/bank transfer payments are literally holding back the future of nootropics and making them more expensive for you.
I'd like to make a proposal to this community to make a concerted effort to get some bitcoin and purchase all your nootropics with it.
Why should we do this?
Many of you pay for your nootropics with credit cards or bank transfers because it's a bit more convenient, you already have it setup, and it seems like a benign way to pay. However, if you follow postings by some of our most reliable vendors you'll see they are really struggling and being held back and some in actual jeopardy because banks are clamping down on them imposing crazy limits/fees/disruptions/etc. But what I want to stress is that it's in your best interest to pay with bitcoin because paying with credit cards is holding back future nootropics and raising your prices. Every credit card payment holds back new nootropics The more income from credit cards the more the nootropic company is a slave to what the credit card company will allow them to sell. MisterYouAreSoDumb has stated he has a whole line up of new nootropics ready to release but can't due to restrictions. If this community made a concerted effort to switch to bitcoin we would almost instantly see a renaissance of next generation compounds. Your decision to pay with bitcoin or not determines whether this will happen or not. Credit card payments raise your prices Vendors are having to go to shadier processors that take bigger cuts and hold money, etc. While that's the vendor's problem it ultimately comes back to the customer in the form of higher prices. We're only ripping ourselves off by continuing to use credit card payments. Here are some threads/comments talking about the issues that our top vendors are struggling with. The comments about Ceretropics probably not lasting and already not restocking many items should be hugely concerning and motivate you if you've been on the fence about this whole Bitcoin thing. https://www.reddit.com/Nootropics/comments/7eebmj/anyone_know_of_any_sites_that_have_black_friday/https://www.reddit.com/Ceretropic/comments/7dq53a/whats_up_with_the_new_modafinil/
Super condensed how to buy bitcoin
The most simple way I've found is to
Create an account at Coinbase where you purchase bitcoins via credit card or bank account
Move those coins to a wallet, blockchain.info is a simple beginner one (this step is optional but recommended)
Send money from this wallet account to the address provided by the vendor after you checkout
That's it. You have now done your part in brightening the future of nootropics. Set this up now not right before you need to order something as it takes a few days to transfer from credit card to bitcoin (bank transfer can be instant but do it now in case you run into any kinks). The reason it's recommended to move from Coinbase to another wallet is 1) it avoids payment delays and 2) Coinbase sometimes bans accounts that buy more legally grey research chemicals so one or more 'hops' is thought to greatly reduce this risk. Other sources I hear recommended but haven't tried are Localbitcoins, Libertyx, Paxful, and Bitcoin ATMs and Electrum (desktop), Mycelium, and Breadwallet for wallets.
Suggestions for the community
In order to make the most impact I have a few ideas to propose for this community. Bitcoin noobs Get your bitcoin and questions if you are confused or need help with the process. Experienced bitcoin users - explain how to get bitcoin easily We can make this thread a great reference if we have multiple options and explanations to get bitcoins or link to your favorite bitcoin beginner guide/video. I'm sure many here have alternate or superior ways to obtain bitcoin than my quick how to. Please go ahead and share it if you do. Also, answer anyone's questions about getting bitcoin here. Mods - add a message about bitcoin in the sidebawiki And maybe sticky this thread for a while if it is appropriate. Bitcoin is in the interest of this community so let's raise some more awareness about it. Vendors - offer a discount for bitcoin purchases to incentivize a shift Offer a super deep discount for a week for bitcoin purchases to kick off the shift, then offer a smaller ongoing discount afterwards. The difficult part in getting people into bitcoin for people is the initial setup effort so make it more appealing with a big one time bitcoin discount and an ongoing reward that pays back more over time for having made the leap. Make the efficiencies of bitcoin transactions more tangible through discounted prices for people who use it. Maybe offer a quarterly 'Bitcoin Clearance Sale'. I think a periodic event like this would get an influx of people transitioning each time. Feel free to copy this to other nootropics or related (supplements, longevity, peptides, etc) boards and spread the word. Every customer that switches over to paying with Bitcoin helps the vendors gain more freedom to carry products, lower prices, or just plain exist. It is the most visible reputable vendors that are hurt the most by credit card payments so if you are a customer please try to switch over to Bitcoin. I know it's annoying but hopefully this little guide and the comments to come make it as quick and painless as possible and we can see some amazing innovation in this community.
I've been toying with the idea of trying Modafinil for months now but it has recently been presented in the press (here, here and on BBC's Newsnight) and so it has sparked my intrigue again. Who here in AskAcademia has tried using "smart drugs" or knows someone who has and what are your thoughts on the subject? I'm in my third year of a four year fully funded PhD and I've been in a bit of a work slump for months. I've tried revamping my working conditions, exercise, diet and so forth but the minute I sit down to work I inevitably procrastinate the day away. I talked to my GP who referred me to a clinical psychiatrist who believes I have some attention problems but would not prescribe anything. I've considered buying Modafinil from various places online but always backed out because it feels a little shady (using bitcoin, problems at customs etc.). i would be intrigued to get the views of people here. edit: sorted links
A beginners guide to buying and using Bitcoins to purchase books etc on Silkroad
So my story is that my country doesnt allow certain controversial books to be sold so I buy them from Silkroad using bitcoin instead. I do not condone using Silkroad for other illegal purposes. Okay so after having written this I realise just how much of a pain in the ass it is to set up but once everything is set up it really is easier than buying stuff of ebay. Step 1: SilkRoad
Once you have it installed go to the folder labled "Tor Browser" and click the "Start Tor Browser".
If the browser connected successfully to the network then put the following address into the url bar to connect to the silkroad website: http://ianxz6zefk72ulzz.onion/index.php Make sure you only ever use that url, do not google "silkroad" to get it, there are phishing scams out there.
Note that the whole underground network is often pretty slow and sometimes the connection times out, you may have to wait a few minutes and try again.
Register an account and browse away!
Step 2: Bitcoins So as you can see from the website you need to pay with bitcoin. The next step is actually a little trickier despite it being perfectly legal.
The cheapest way to buy bitcoins is from an exchange. I use www.mtgox.com. Once you have an account with mtgox click "add funds" and choose wire transfer.
In order for this to work make sure you have online banking set up with your bank. Its different with every bank but with my bank you set up an international bank transfer and add a new beneficiary, if you havent done this before then you'll probably have to wait until your bank post you an activation code.
Once you have this set up then transfer money to your mtgox account(takes 3-4 days). This can then be used to purchase bitcoins. Once you have the bitcoins then click "withdraw funds" and enter the bitcoin address given to you by Silkroad to transfer to your silkroad account.
[Startup Satire] The science behind being popular by applying scientific methodology and data science to social media growth hacking
The science of being popular. Many times throughout my early-access career on Ello and various other social networks, I believe people have often wanted to ask me how I became so popular. Currently I have added a devout following of 312 friends which boasts a whopping >31,000% growth rate today alone on Ello. How did I do it you ask? Well, grab some popcorn and a seat. Years ago I employed a group of scientists to help me with my research. One of the scientists, named Kyle Striker, has made many breakthroughs in peer-to-peer interaction analysis. We devised an experiment to track and predict what type of posts will be popular on individual networks and what's about to take off (new memes, news, etc). These are our experiment notes which are mostly observational. First we needed the proper data. We studied many age groups, personality disorders, and types of human subjects existing online by finding them in their habitual communities. Here is what we witnessed:
Ego-centricism, bikini pic stalkers, and how-to guides on dissolving your relationships on Facebook,
Empty room shouters with multiple-personality disorders on Twitter,
Degenerate racists, faget OPs, and celebrity phone hackers on 4chan,
Job recruiters on Linkedin
(Please note: we had to stop studying Linkedin due to egregious email spam we couldn't completely unsubscribe from. All computers had to have Adobe Reader updated and Google ULTRON uninstalled]) At this point we took a break to admire the beautiful echoing caverns created by Google+ before returning to our studies.
We reblogged social justice warriors on Tumblr,
Our phones kept crashing trying to upload to Instagram,
Popularity whoring and studies of facepalm Q&A to questionably aged teenagers on Ask.fm,
You-should-still-go-to-college substandard content creators on Vine,
Hipsters and Bachelor of Arts studentloan debt holders on Flickr,
Forever alone chatroom perverts on Omegle,
Penises... so many penises... on Chatroulette,
We needed to buy a new cellphone to keep up with our growing social demand (Klout score off the charts) and research so we stopped by Craigslist to get one on the cheap. $100 for an iPhone 6? What could go wrong? We met a girl, and her 6 male friends waiting in her Corolla, to make the purchase outside of a Walmart parking lot located approx. inbetween both our residences. I wanted to pay her the asking price which we had already agreed to but forgot a $10 bill at home (whoops!). She still accepted the deal and it was a steal! To our dismay, the phone was banned from all networks due to a reported theft. We left AT&T with a brand new cell phone on two-year contract after Police questioning. Oh well, back to work. We observed...
Scandalously-dressed digital security illiterates on "it's not going to happen" Snapchat,
Self-important gym membership holding check-in spammers on Foursquare,
Ever-increasingly irrelevant band members on Myspace,
Elitist rare item enthusiats on World of Warcraft camping our spawn point,
Armchair economists and established / respected soon-to-be-scammers on BitcoinTalk,
Wantreprenuers and TMI you-probably-shouldn't-have-publicly-shared-that on Wordpress,
A society whose own experiments prove microwave ramen is a survivable diet on deviantART,
In-decisive bandwagoners and portfolio building self-pleasurers on Angelist, and many more...
We collected tons of data, Striker and I. We built a team of first-year data scientists (career chosen because Fiverr couldn't pay the bills, but at least they all had college degrees) to build the most complex statistical analysis models ever known to humanity. Years passed as keyboard replacements became our largest business expense. There was no time to waste. Striker used 3D printing to build new workspaces that maximized productivity. Each trendy open-space cubicle (just like Facebook!) had an innovative office-chair-toilet-seat combo and all human biological consumption requirements were met through IV-fed Soylent dispensers. We increased the workday to 22 hours powered by prescription modafinil sourced on the darkweb with bitcoin and caffinated soap on wash cloths. Our workforce drank more Redbull than the Jersey Shore. Everything was building towards the most beautiful capstone of online psychological analysis ever constructed. Social networks were a farmed resource, the data our children, and we were their Gods. It is commonplace to restate the original question when conducting the scientific methodology. So, how did we astronomically grow in popularity? How did we become the trendsetters, social influencers, tastemakers, leaders amongst our peers, an online metaphor to being on the Middle School basketball team, the Great Bambino of online likes, follows, shares, upvotes, post bumps, comment counts, and front page residency holders of the internet? I blame burn rates, but the results were inconclusive. Want to read something less non-fictional?

It all started in Mid January, when I needed some cash, when I remembered Modafinil. I came online to reddit, and wondered if it would work. And what do you know, you guys welcomed me with open arms.

If you're like me, and found BuyAfinil.com, researched it a bit, and found this sub-reddit. We're in the same boat. Read on... I saw someone mention BuyAfinil.com on a blog post comment section, and decided to try it out. I did some Googling and found this sub-reddit. I was very skeptical, but I decided to place a small order. To my surprise the entire transaction was quick, painless, and easy. Using Bitcoin, the transaction went through quickly, received an email confirmation thereafter.
Ordered on March 8, received on March 15 (7 days total).
The order arrives from India, and can be tracked using the tracking info in the email confirmation.
The package is discreet. Just looks like something you purchased online from another country. I Googled the from address/company, nothing online that exposes the true origin. Awesome!
Each pill (Modalert, Sun Pharma) is individually wrapped in foil.
Manufacture date is 11/2016, and expires 10/2018.
USPS requires a signature on delivery. Had to go pick up from Post Office, and sign for the package. Alternatively, you could use http://usps.com/redelivery to deliver to your mailbox after the initial pink slip is received.
If you've never taken Modafinil, here are some tips, based on personal experience.
First week, break the pill in 1/2 to get a feel for what to expect.
Consider not taking after 12PM (if you're a 1st shift worker), or you'll be up all night.
Don't expect a caffeine rush, you'll be disappointed. Expect the feeling of a good nights sleep, enhanced mental clarity, great focus, and motivation to do boring repetitive tasks. If you're taking Ritalin/Adderall/etc, you'll likely experience the same benefits, but without the nasty side effects (shitty mood, constant sweating, anger, crashing).
Take rest days and allow your brain to rest.
So why are there so many anonymous reviews here? A) BuyAfinil.com will give you a coupon for writing a review. B) Everyone is using a throwaway account, as nobody wants this review in their Reddit history? :)
