My 'smart drugs' nightmare - BBC News

Оценок: 12791 | Просмотров: 1752001
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 don't care what anyone says.. nobody has what I have. MDNT will turn you into a real go getter and have fun at same time. You don't have to take my word for it. Look at what others had to say about MDNT . www.greentohealth.weebly.com/testimonials

None of these are what I or anybody I know consider "Smart Drugs", as they lack all the proper characteristics that defined the term. These are merely pharmaceuticals. None of the "Smart Drugs" I've ever taken in the past are even mentioned, and I've taken MANY. Don't believe everything you see on the BBC. This one was a big fail. Also, everyone in this video is a douchebag.

I take Venvanse for a while and it has really help me to get a more productive day even with my major depression. These drugs really help a lot of people and as any drug it can be harmful if it's use without prescription. My depression is so bad that I can sleep a entire day even when I take the drug, so I really need this extra energy. If you do not fit the prescription, do not be stupid and fry your perfectly healthy brain with those drugs. Respect yourself and your body. I would give anything to not have to deal with my condition every single day.

Modafinil takes about 45-60 minutes for onset. The bumps you got are something i've seen, but they go away after a day or two. Usually mine were on my feet or palms. I quit taking it because of it. It definitely improved my thinking. I wrote about 10k lines of code for a project in about 4 days...

any chemical taken orally takes about 20 minutes to enter the blood stream, so saying he felt it instantly is just not possible, best thing for a clear brain is good food, good sleep. and be active, cycle, walk, nothing to strenuous, avoid alcohol and drugs. free and simple.

I’ve been doing modafinil for a few months now. I used to take them most days throughout the week at start after realising how much memory I gained throughout the day. I could remember almost everything that was said on podcast episodes and could process information so much quicker and analyse them so much quicker as well, saving my time. Now I only take one every now and then when I feel fresh enough for work or have an important occasion. One of my friends only gets headaches from this. It really depends on the person. That’s why there is so many different opinions on it, because it works and doesn’t work for some people 🤗

I have been taking Moda for a few months. The reason why this reporter is having issues is because he is taking his dosage at the wrong frequencies and times of the day. If you take Moda after 7 - 8 am, you will not sleep that night. If you want to have a productive, focused day, take it in the morning, drink 2 litres of water a day to stay hydrated, and get to bed at a reasonable hour. Take it at most every other day.

I can't go near these things due to the effect they have on heart rate and anxiety. They all tend to be reasonably strong stimulants that can also trigger existing irregular heartbeat conditions. I can't see these sorts of pills being safe for long term use. It'd be interesting to see if there is a link between these and heart failure in old age.

Modafinil is for the weak. Healthy diet, sleep, and discipline is the way to go.

You didnt experienced it because maybe you are already smart and taking too many precaution on everything. Those who felt it probably àint so good precaution just like you did.

From personal experience it sounds like you have been getting ripped off or you are taking a mixture of stimulants like amphetamines, ephidrine etc... the lack of appetite and feeling more "high" later on sounds like amphetamines and ritalin good video though someones got to do it

The most likely reason the guy can't sleep is because he took modafinil late (modafinil has a long half-life). The most likely reason he had a headache was because of lack of intake of choline. The reason for the spots was probably because of this thing called allergies! Seriously the guy could've done research before diving in.

If you want modafinil in the UK then just fill out the forms on the online pharmacies like UK Meds Direct, answer the questions with symptoms of narcolepsy and you get it prescribed

Susanne Pinheiro Bartolo (11 дней назад)
Since it affects your nor-adrenaline and dopamine system, it affects your adrenal glands and thus regulates a stress response that temporarily gives you a concentration boost and temporarily affects your bladder. In the long term that can cause exhaustion because you ask more of your body than is good for you. If that professor says that they do not know how it works, then I do not understand this is generally known. And do not tell me that I know better than a professor while I have a much lower salary. :P Pharmaceutical industry XD trying to sell us wonders
VNM _ (11 дней назад)
when you have logorrhoea and you think you're so much smarter doesn't mean that what you're telling is smart as you think it, cocaine and other amphetamine based drugs may give you this wrong impression and if you abuse it, you will be stuck in a cycle of lying yourself that you are smarter. Things will be done because you are more awake and you can concentrate better, but you can do that with THE other drug: caffeine.

I got my first batch the other day, the first day it woke me right up and had me pretty focused, then I got home at 3pm (took it at 8:30) and passed out for a couple hours. I took it again this morning and it didn't do much at all, save for a splitting headache the first half of the day. I'm currently going through severe caffeine withdrawals (going from a gram or more per day to nothing but excedrin to help mitigate the headaches) and adrenal fatigue, so using modafinil to counter the extreme moodiness and lethargy from the lack of caffeine. The first day I just felt happy and well rested, like I'd had a good night's sleep and not much else. Socially I felt a bit constrained, like the only things I could say were purely logical and sequential responses to what people were saying. Not much wit or creativity, but at the same time it also helped a lot with impulse control and I got much more done at work and wasn't bothered by the workload at all. I'd say it's similar to caffeine in that it can help you do things you already know how to do in a more efficient manner and for longer amounts of time, but when it comes to learning new material it can actually be more of a hindrance due to putting the brain on a more straight-shot logical path. This morning when I took it, my head just hurt like crazy for a few hours and it didn't do much to alter my mood or keep me awake at all. My theories are either that this has to do with caffeine withdrawal and general sleep deprivation over the last couple weeks, a bad or mismeasured batch of pills, or acetylcholine depletion. At any rate, I'll take another one tomorrow morning after I've had more time to wake up and see if this really is a temporary wonder drug for the acutely fatigued.

Taken Providual/Modofinil for over a decade. I have experienced nothing like those effect, just not falling asleep all the time. I quit it for over a week and barely noticed. The only concern is that there is no explanation of specific action for this drug on your brain.

Modafinil and Armodafinil are crappy drugs. PERIOD
Lazar Catalina (16 дней назад)
Modafinil increase levels of dopamine and adrenaline. If he doesnt have a low dopamine in his brain,of course u feel nausea,because it will be an overdose of dopamine. This med is good for people like me,who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and hypersomnia, If i dont take anything,last time i slept 1 week,20 hours per day.I hate sleeping,is wasting life.

lavinia johnson (17 дней назад)
Though this is interesting the BBC should be above click bate titles this wasn't a nightmare only a mild annoyance. And some of the 'side reactions' could have been due from the loss of appetite like the headache and tiredness but he should have got a caravan for his brain and there also should have been a few more cognitive tests done. Overall expended a little more investigation and less fluff

If anything stimulates you, you have to be very hydrated. People seem to not know how hydrated we have to be you should drink at least a whole gallon a day, 2 glasses of water rite when you wake up. Our bodies are mostly made of water and a ton of people are dehydrated on a day to day basis and don’t even know it...

Why did you blur the clock in the background when you were taking the test? Also, was the test the same one you took before the drug and after? if they were the same, then couldn't any improvement have just been from familiarity as well? Seems bogus. You can get the same cognitive functions from a bump of cocaine too, and at least you feel it and are sure it's doing something. haha

Every non pot smoking young adult who thinks that one day they are gunna be rich and will one day, after submitting many of their most prime years of diligent hard work will realize they have been sold a fairy tail to keep them efficient as possible to slave for the system thus not benefiting them or their families in the long run.

Gotta remember that dosage can be different for everyone. I’ve never tried them but I’ve been on the weight loss drug phentamine and while I know it’s no where near the same type of drug it did give me energy and make me lite headed while making me groggy and hyper by night time and I couldn’t sleep at all on it leading to me breaking down in tears 😭 one morning because I hadn’t slept in two nights straight. Be careful and if it make’s U feel bad stop taking it.
