Adrafinil: a quick re-cap
It is worth admitting from the outset that available literature on Adrafinil is sparse in comparison to its alternative, Modafinil. This, however, should not swerve users from opting for Adrafinil.
Adrafinil began its development in France in the late 1970s and is now considered a eugeroic, i.e., a wakefulness-promoting agent. Its cognitive benefits are enhanced by noted improvements in day-time alertness, motivation, mood and energy levels.
So…does it do what it intends? Plenty of user reviewers think so.
“This product has worked remarkably for me thus far. I can definitely tell the difference between this and any other stimulants I’ve tried. The difference being Adrafinil creates a much smoother feeling of being awake and alert” (Danny on Powder City)
“I had an increased awareness of what was going on around me, I felt very optimistic about everything, and I had almost God-like powers to think and concentrate. I felt very much awake” (Alza_36 on Drugs-forum)
“This product has worked very well just as described. I am put in a better mood, become more motivated, feel less stressed, and able to focus and problem solve much easier” (Corey on Powder City)
“Adrafanil kicked in after an hour of orally ingesting the substance, one 300 milligram capsule, and immediately I was in the zone, and knew it was the strongest nootropic I had ever taken” (Stephen on nootriment.com)
“It lacks the over-stimulation of amphetamines, and instead has a mellow openness” (LifeSucceedsDeath on Drugs-forum)
In Britain, Adrafinil is not a controlled drug and does not require a prescription. This means that it is not measured under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, a legislation that governs the regulation of drugs. However, Adrafinil’s legal status remains in grey area. It is lawful for purchase by British residents, but only for personal use. The drug is, however, currently legal in the U.S. and UK so can be bought, prescription free, as an alternative to Modafinil.
