My Modafinil prescription is not affordable and now I have to detox from it

I had been ordering Modafinil with the permission of my Psychiatrist for 5 years with no problem from 3 different overseas pharmacies. Last week I got a letter from U.S. Customs telling me they seized the most recent package, and I would be fined and federally prosecuted if I was caught doing it again. Now I have to go off of it. I have two weeks left. I heard the detox is terrible but my doctor said to just stop it. I have no choice. I have no where to get it. So I am advising one thing and asking one question: Please don't think you can't get caught buying drugs overseas! Be careful and think it through. I was lucky with just a warning! My question is has anyone ever detoxed off of 200 mgs. Modafinil twice a day, and what was it like? ## Nobody thinks they're going to get ...

Generic Modafinil, Provigil (brand) or Nuvigil Experiences

Hey all, 1. Anyone tried varying generics of Modafinil? Which ones, and did they work? Anyone tried brand Provigil (super pricey!) as well and can compare the two? 2. Anyone try Modafinil or Provigil and also tried the considerably cheaper brand Nuvigil (or even generic Nuvigil; please specify which generic). Did they affect you differently? How so, especially in terms of mood, motivation, energy, wakefulness, and task initiation (the latter for ADHD people). How long did it last, and how much longer than Modafinil/Provigil? Please include what doses were optimal! The full story: I have severe ADHD and severe excessive daytime sleepiness since childhood and adolescence, respectively. Perfect physical health otherwise. ADHD meds help many of my ADHD symptoms, but do nothing for my fatigu...

i have to stop modafinil ALMOST cold turkey what should expect 4 - 200 mgs pills per day

I have 30 pills left. Will weaning myself off 4 - 200 mgs, Modafinil cause me a lot of problems? I can't go into a rehab for personal reasons. ## Hello, Candy! How are you? A very slow taper would be best, if you've been taking such a high dosage for a long period of time. According to the FDA, abruptly stopping a stimulant, such as this, could result in some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness, chills, fever, drowsiness and diarrhea. Withdrawals can, sometimes, be dangerous. So it is best to be careful and get professional medical help. Is your doctor aware that you are stopping them? ## Hello Vernon, I'm dealing with a positive attitude and that's the best I can do now. HOW ARE YOU? I am doing what you suggested--slowly tapering off of them. My Doctor said ju...

I believe that the key is in CYP3A4, but i am not a neuroscientist. Some suggestions? THANKS ## I am also not a doctor or neuroscientist.

Doing this helps prevent your body from building up a tolerance to it. Learn more Modafanil details here. Have you tried any of the other stimulant medications? If so, did you have an...

Hydrocodone And Modafinil

Can Hydrocodone and Modafinil be taken together? ## Hi Fred, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Hydrocodone and Modafinil. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. In conclusion, these two medications are regarded as being safe to take together and shouldn't present any problems outside of the normal side effects associated with each medication. I hope this helps to answer your question! ## What about Oxycodone (Roxycodone--I should say, without Tylenol) and Modafinil combined? I am taking them both for three years and haven't had a problem. Does anyone have a comment about this. The Roxy is a lot stronger than the Hydrocodone for ...

Modafinil manufacturers

What reputable manufacturers the product Modafinil? I get my prescription from Walmart but I hope it's not being manufactured in China. ## The MedsChat drug information page on Modafinil notes that it's a product originating from India. However I'm seeing that there are a multitude of brand names stemming from a variety of other countries as well. A full list can be viewed here: Modafinil Details. NOTE - Scroll down to section 9, titled "Society and culture". The list of brand names and their respective countries can be found just underneath it. I hope this helps! ## I recently took Modafinil and am not feeling the effects that I did on another manufacturer's version of this product. Has anyone else had this experience before?
