My 'smart drugs' nightmare - BBC News

Оценок: 13714 | Просмотров: 1867573
So-called "smart drugs" are drugs that can supposedly enhance your cognitive abilities. People all over the world are taking them in universities, offices and the comfort of their own home - to get ahead of the game. One drug, Modafinil - is amongst the most popular. It was labelled in August 2015 as the world’s first “safe” smart drug - off the back of research from Harvard and Oxford University. But is this true? And do “smart drugs" actually work? In this film, our reporter Benjamin Zand tries a drug himself - as he takes a first-hand look inside the world of so-called smart drugs.

I expected a lot more from a video by the BBC. This is amateur work at best.

I tossed them like gems! And they do work!! Here +’s 1. Mind is so fast that I should use it for propulsion or else it becomes explosions. Setting goals right helps. x10 for Armodafinil 2. No sleep at all. x2 for armod 3. Very active physically. 4. Can read a 300 page book in a day line to line and remember all of it. -‘s 1. Feel my pulse high as if I’m running 2. Dry lips. (Only modafinil) 3. No sleep Ask me more if you wanna know!

Modalert is the shit he took and its bad, i find it makes me super racey and its honestly just feels like amphetamine. Get branded modafinil from a genuine company not these shitty indian happy pills
jstpgms (3 дня назад)
Would you not have the pills you received from buying on the internet tested to see if it is in fact modafinil
shitmandood (3 дня назад)
He ordered those pills from India, I wonder if they were modafinil or laced with something else since he was having weird effects.
shitmandood (3 дня назад)
Next question: If everyone can use it, then how the HELL can it give you any competitive advantage if everyone else is also on it?
shitmandood (3 дня назад)
A.) Why in the HELL would you take a modafinil in the afternoon or evening for experimental purposes? B.) Why in the HELL didn't you wait until you got home, took the pill in the morning, & then waited to see what the effects would be? You shouldn't be moving around when you don't know what's going to happen physically or mentally. You could end up getting stuck using a broken toilet somewhere.

funny part is there's zero definitive proof that ANY nootropics do ANYTHING to enhance your brain....IT'S SUCH A HUGE SCAM....the "limitless" pill does not exist for a reason...because you use all of your brain (even 30% while resting)...i wish i could make money off fools who think theyre actually getting a super charged brain

One10 2Ten (10 дней назад)
This is some bs. Not only do you not "feel" the effects of mild stimulents, but you also dont feel anything from nootropic drugs. They increase cognitive function not make you feel anything. Yes you can describe what the effects are but theres no euphoria, no hyper activity, no dissociation, nothing. This video is bullshit do your research on drugs. Theres literally hundreds of smart drugs, or "supplements" sold legally on the internet just do your research yourself, not on youtube.

Apparently the pill worked but he didn't notice it. he couldn't sleep at night which means he got more power but the problem is he took it too late that it only kicked in at his bedtime. and also I'm assuming he didn't drink enough water or else he wouldn't experience the headache

Dallas Tex (17 дней назад)
His producer should have intercepted the package first and took out the real pills and switched with fakes, had him take the tests, swap them back, tell him he is taking an Advil so he thinks he isn’t taking anything and have him take the tests again and see what the effects actually are?

Eat a clean organic plant diet, exercise, hydrate with spring and mineral water, get sun on bare skin and sleep. Take drugs of any kind and look old, ruin your heart and brain and ruin your life longterm. Use organic fruit smoothies plant based diet and you'll have all the energy and focus you need. Organic fruit feeds the brain and energy. Energy comes from your muscles.

Smart drug? Why do they call it a smart drug? I understand it will definitely make you work faster, but the last thing it’s going to do is make you smarter.. quite the opposite in fact.

micro dose on shrooms and get yourself to be in a zen-like state so you can fully embody the experience of not only the drug but the activity you are doing as well. doing this will give you that same effects of sharpness of the mind, effortlessness in movements and tasks, probelem solving is enhanced and productivity while its safe and natural at the same time.

JohnDoe (22 дня назад)
The guy who felt the affect in 2 sec... As a person who has taken this it had absolutely no affect on me beyond me not being sleepy or even after crossing the Atlantic and massive time zone shift I was able to go on. It didn't help me focus more or any of those things. Just took the sleep thing away. I quit coz I might as well (1) get proper Sleep (2) if need may be take energy drink.... I've taken energy drinks and yes the affect of this med to Wade off sleep was just much cleaner and way more effective

I took modafinil for about 2 weeks and i felt difficult sometime to sleep. It helps me in concentration way but piracetam i don't know its effect i took it one time. But i recommended to sleep well but without sleep all is useless.

What about a ulcer. Maybe it could work in 15 minutes if it gets in the bloodstream.. Just a guess.
allah bless (26 дней назад)
Except you can take it under the tongue and feel it in minutes. And even then there's a name for that effect where you can feel something in seconds if you've been a regular user of it
Joseph Banash (27 дней назад)
Couldn't the 10% increase be due to the practice effect of repeating the same test twice? What they should've done was take 3 trials: 1 without Modafinil, 1 with Modafinil, and a placebo.

There might not be any substance addiction but what people don’t think about is that there might be an addiction to the effects of the drug. Both equally dangerous

e hisamova (28 дней назад)
Iknowaguy who has taken modafinil and it does work but it makes it hard to fall asleep later. Theyd feel the effects after about an hour and a half, not within 2 minutes like this guy. It doesn't give you a body high either, your brain just becomes way more motivated and awake.

More like 10 minutes,and that would only really happen if you take it late in the afternoon

To say that you know a "smart drug" affects neurotransmiters but you don´t know which ones is like saying nothing with a lot of words...Of course it is affectingneurotransmitters you are basically saying "I have no idea what this drug does"

Placebo effect can be very powerful. Check the price of these "wonder drugs". That's the real magic of the pills. Also, RIP UK. Hate to see you guys taken over by Islam but it is what it is. Allahu Ackbar or whatever the fuck the new national anthem is.

When I was younger and lived in London we used to buy deshidrine , amphetamine sulphate,...a classic....very good anphetamine indeed. 2 a day for six months or more...and then I felt It was time to stop, no abstinence , nothing. The good old amphetamine is relatively safe. I don’t trust most modern drugs that go to the brain. Just because are news and we don’t know yet the dangers.

I used to get modafinil prescribed through my neurologist as I have a complex sleeping disorder yes it does give you a boost and helped me a lot through work and daily routine also having a low form of autism this drug worked in a way to help me process information better to do a job compared to before hand sometimes things were harder at times . This drug shouldn't be sold on the street at all
