Modafinil Stories: A College Student’s Smart Drug Experience

Podcast Interview of Students Sharing Stories About Their Modafinil Experiences

As we have mentioned in previous posts, the smart drug, Modafinil, is used by people of all backgrounds, whether they be students, travelers, workers, or even job hunters. And as you’d expect, they all have their own Modafinil experience stories to tell.

Recently, we had a student (let’s call him Gary) drop us an email with his Modafinil experience. It was his first time buying Modafinil online from yours truly, Buymoda. For sure, we love hearing all these positive stories about our products. And for those of you who are new to our shop, make sure you check out our various Modafinil products. We also have Armodafinil products.

Anyway. This post is not about us. It’s about Gary.

We asked Gary if he’d be happy to share his experience taking Modafinil on our blog. Lo and behold, he agreed to have his Modafinil words of wisdom shared with you guys.

So the rest of the article will be all Gary. Show some love and appreciation by sharing this post on your social feeds. That will certainly warm Gary’s soul.


Modafinil Through the Eyes of Students

My Modafinil experience was more than a feeling of “being in the zone”. I felt like I was on a higher level than that.

When I tried my first Modafinil pill it was intended to help me focus on the tons of college work I had. The feeling was like being at one with my work. 3 hours would just warp by without me realizing it. Most of the time, if that happened, I would find that I had just wasted a few hours doing random useless stuff. But with Modafinil in my system, I found that I had spent every second of my time fully committed to my college work.

The Secret to Spending Less Time on Social Media

As you can imagine, it’s a busy life being a student. We, students, have multiple social media accounts that we need to check every 10 minutes and comments that we have to leave when we like (or hate) something. But when I’m rocking these smart study pills, it’s like I WANT to do nothing but WORK! I had zero interest in checking Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, or even my text messages.

Well, to be fair, it wasn’t about not having an interest in other things. It was just that the Modafinil made me concentrate 100% on my work that I didn’t even have a chance to stray away to something else.

Modafinil Takes Away That “Always Sleepy” Feeling

Without consuming Modafinil, I’m ready for a nap by 2 or 3 pm—regardless of what I’m doing. Without my afternoon nap, I won’t be able to function. Nothing gets done!

But with Modafinil, miraculously, I find myself skipping right past my sleeping breaks.

I have tried caffeine and other energy stimulants to help keep me awake, but they are pretty much hit or miss. Especially when it comes to coffee or energy drinks. Sometimes I get a massive kick and just can’t sleep at all. Other times, only a few minutes after downing my brew, I’m crashed out in bed or on the sofa.

If you like stories, I have another, but not about Modafinil.

There was this one time I had to drive all day but halfway through the day, I was already struggling to keep my eyes open. Now that’s an extremely dangerous situation to be in. I was drinking loads of coffee but it was useless. I even stop a few times to catch a few winks. But I needed to carry on with my journey. So I stopped by another roadside shop and picked up some Mountain Dew.

And guess what? I had never felt MORE AWAKE! It was incredible.

But you know what? Days after that event, I was in a similar sleepy situation and again, turned to the big MD. But this time around, it wasn’t keeping me alert.

So yeah, I’ve had plenty of experiences where a stimulant would work one day, then fail on me the next.

Modafinil, however, has yet to let me down.

My Little Story About the Effect of Modafinil

My baseline heart rate is in the low 60s. When I’m on Modafinil, I would regularly find my resting heart rate in the 70-something range. Sure, that’s higher than what my heart rate is without Modafinil dust running through my veins. But 70 is still a healthy heart rate. And it’s not like those crazy ceiling numbers you heard about with gamer kids jacked up on energy drinks.

I’m sure if you’ve heard about Modafinil then you’ve most likely heard students sharing stories about how the pills were able to double their IQ levels. More than likely you’ve heard the king of all stories from fellow students about how Modafinil is the real-life pill from Limitless.

However, let’s not kid ourselves. Modafinil is indeed a miracle pill. But it does have its limits. The reality is that the effects of Modafinil are far timider than what you hear in the schoolyard. The wonder pill does a great job of promoting wakefulness and keeping you from burning out. In addition to that, it makes you more attentive to detail and also boosts your memory senses.

I heard that Modafinil is a great supplement to take to help support weight loss. I have neither gained nor lost any weight since taking Modafinil. So I can’t vouch for those claims. But if you think about it from a logical standpoint, then yeah, it could assist with weight loss.

How? Well, one of the things I forgot to mention is that when you consume any amount of Modafinil tablets, you lose your appetite. And this is not just my own personal experience with taking Modafinil. I have heard countless stories from other students who have said that they just don’t feel hungry when they’re taking Modafinil.

Stories Other Students May Not Have Told You About Modafinil

What’s That Smell?

Modafinil gives a rather odd smell to your urine. It is a very distinctive smell. Similar to that smell you get after you eat asparagus. Not the same smell. Just saying that Modafinil adds a weird smell to your wee just like asparagus does. However, it’s a very subtle smell. Not like those tear-jerkers that you find in nasty public toilets.

Burn Outs? Not With Modafinil

You know what? I have stories for days, my own and other students, about Modafinil and other similar pills. There was this other time when I gave Ritalin a shot. Man! The massive mental crash that came along with it was no joke!

Ever had a caffeine crash? Remember that feeling, then multiply it by thirty! I don’t have any mental crash stories to talk about when it comes to Modafinil. In fact, if I pop a Modafinil tablet at 7 in the morning, twelve hours later I’m still blitzing through my work.

Mistaken Identity

Modafinil is not a stimulant. I tend to notice when reading other student stories about Modafinil that they refer to it as a stimulant. Well, it isn’t. Modafinil does not provide that “edge” feeling that stimulants like caffeine, Ritalin, or Adderall do. It’s more of a subtle feeling that guides you through your work in an effective way. However, it does kinda make me forget to drink water. But it doesn’t dry out my mouth the way Ritalin does.

That reminds me. I can’t tell you my Modafinil stories without dropping advice here and there. Other students have said the same things – if you want to take Modafinil and stay healthy, plan your meals and water intake.

My suggestion: eat and drink plenty BEFORE you take your first tablet of the day. At least if you find yourself missing meals during your Modafinil session, you have some energy in you to keep you from withering away.

Staying hydrated while on the pill may be a bit tougher. I suggest that you have a few bottles of water or your favorite drink within reach. If you have set up a task list to follow then maybe you could jot down reminders to DRINK!

If Modafinil is a Drug, Does That Mean It’s Illegal?

Modafinil is a medicinal drug. It is marketed as a prescription medication in the United States to treat shift work disorder, narcolepsy, and other sleep disorders. It has been approved for consumption by the FDA. And I have not heard any stories where anyone has been arrested for possession of Modafinil pills.

Actually, another user shared his Modafinil experiences, and he mentioned traveling through airports with Modafinil on him.

But just to be safe, maybe check up on the laws in your country or town. As is with most things, laws differ from state to state and country to country.


The Modafinil stories we share here are not intended as medical advice in any way, shape, or form. We get tons of stories sent to us, especially from students who wish to share their Modafinil experience.

Modafinil is a prescription drug, so we strongly recommend that you consult a physician, doctor, or medical professional before taking it.
