How long does it take until you feel the effects of Modafinil?
Well again everyone is different… But in general, after about 40mins you can start to feel the effects creeping up.
For some people this means feeling a little strange, some say its a wobbly feeling.
For me, at times I start feeling a little spacy… This usually lasts for about 30mins.
It doesn’t affect my productivity, you can easily power through it, but you can just feel the Modafinil in your system.
Once the “come up” phase is done… It’s generally smooth sailing.. you can get tons of work or study done.
What should you be doing while the Modafinil begins to kick in and work its magic?
Well waiting until you “feel” or notice the effects is not recommended.. you could be waiting a while…
You’ll most likely just keep on waiting well after its kicked in…
You see, besides the slight disorientation you may feel, there isn’t much else you feel.
So what I reckon the best this to do is: take the modafinil pill, and get to work.. start right away.
As in… Don’t wait.
If you do this method, by the time you notice that the Modafinil has kicked in, you’ll already be at least an hour into your work or study, and you’ll be super focused ready to continue kicking ass.
Modafinil amplifies what’s already within you… If you can focus on your work already, it’ll increase that focus by leaps and bounds over the entire day.
However, if you get distracted by every shiny thing, you get super distracted by every shiny thing, and spend much longer than usual being distracted by it.
You’ve been warned.
What the professionals say about the length of time it takes to kick in:
25 to 40 minutes.
But at risk of sounding like a broken record, it goes without saying, that every one is different…
Times will vary based on a multitude of different factors…
Things like, when and what was the last thing you ate?
What other chemicals do you have in your body at the time you take Modafinil?
All these factors will change the way Modafinil comes on.
If for example, you find they come up a bit too strong for your comfort levels.. try popping the pill shortly after breakfast…
This will slow the process of the come on, as your body is dealing with the process of digestion.
Me on the other hand like to do almost the opposite.
I tend to practice intermittent fasting most days of the week. So I try to make it a point that I’ll only do Modafinil on a day when I know I’m going to do the intermittent fast.
So what this means to me is, the night before my last meal is around 8pm…
When I wake up in the morning, usually around 5-6am… The first thing i do (after peeing and brushing my teeth) is I do an 1/2 hour mediation.
Then make some black coffee…, and read a book for about 40mins to an hour.
This is my typical daily, morning routine…
On days when I take Modafinil, I usually pop it when drinking my coffee and reading.
By the time I finish readings, it’s already starting to come up.
I can start to feel the come from effects of the Modafinil.
Then I get straight to work…
Without food and with Modafinil. I’m and positively buzzed.
I’m so focused and productive.. it’s fricken amazing… If you’re new to Modafinil and new to intermittent fasting.. I suggest you go easy. It’s not for everyone and it takes some time getting used to it.
But it’s awesome. It really is…
