Anybody have a rec for a dr that will prescribe Modafinil without making a huge deal about it?

    Protip: if you legitimately need a prescription for a controlled drug, don't go to a doctor telling them about how you want it.

      It really doesn't keep you awake so much as it gives you the option of staying or becoming awake, also.

      Because it has high potential for abuse and recreational / off label use. so while it's possible to get insurance to cover it, it's just a hassle. They will want to see that you've done 100 other things *first*, like sleep studies, cpap, etc, and that you're using the med as a last resort.

      Problem is I don't really feel like waiting that long, lol

      Or just tell them that you used to use it and it helped... Thus implying that someone else has already done the vetting.

      Modafinil does not have much recreational potential. It's not addictive, and what research there is, says that it's good for your brain.

      It won't give you a high. It'll just keep you awake longer... Like better quality coffee.

      Lots of SV entrepreneurs get it illegally to work longer (I haven't heard of anyone getting spanked for it by the cops)

    You can buy it over the counter in India. I load up on it every time I visit.

      Great way to get a drug charge and permanently banned from the US....

      It's not drug charge if you have a prescription. You get one for like $2 in India or you can ask the pharmacist to give you one. America is the guilty one here with its retarded drug laws

      They might try to scare you but if it's for personal use you've nothing to fear.

    I have abused moda extensively for academic and work purposes. At best, you can focus of you get a great nights sleep the night before. but it makes you into a zombie and highly irritatable. its unpleasant. coffee best.

      and BTW, it is not a replacement for sleep over the long term. there is no replacement for good sleep. nothing taught me that better than mod

    Provigil? Have you spoken with a doctor at Stanford? I don't take that med (family who does) but found the docs at Stanford to be very reasonable if you have a pre-existing condition.

      Haven't tried stanford. Tried a psychiatrist who gave me Zoloft and said she doesn't feel comfortable prescribing provigil so I should see a sleep dr instead (also have sleep apnea). That dr wants me to do cpap, dental device, and surgery before he will consider med. ugh.

      Recently had some health issues. Can highly recommend Stanford Healthcare over other places I've been. Fully covered with my Cigna plan too. Check them out.

    If you have a friend who will be in India, have them buy you a few hundred in a corner shop and bring it back; it's as common there as Starbucks is here. USA TSA had no issues with it (undeclared) in early 2017

      One of my co-workers apparently didn't know that it was harder to get in the USA, ended up unexpectedly going home for the holidays basically to pick up a supply... His parents were happy tho lol

    You can get gray market online pretty easily, but make sure you research sources. Did it a few years ago with success but can't vouch for recent optionw

      Stopped? Did you develop side effects or did your sleep pattern normalize?

    Probably best to find a doc that's clueless

    Also, it makes your urine smell really bad. That's the only downside I've encountered. No crash, no jitters.
