Just a few quick pointers:
Adrafinil is the prodrug for Modafinil that gets synthesized in the body. Because of this the byproduct that gets passed out in urine is excessive sulfur molecules. Therefore it usually takes more of it compared to modafinil to reach the same effect. For example, roughly speaking, 600 milligrams to 700 milligrams approximately equates to a 200 milligram dose of modafinil, depending on one's metabolism of course. In addition to that, due to that metabolic reaction, in my opinion, Adrafinil is not as good quality as the purer modafinil. Of course, these are just my experiences and my info should not be taken as official medical advise. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. , I've been taking adrafinil for about a year (every two to three months I cycle off for a full month) and it works fine, but of course I'd rather take modafinil. The best quality modafinil is available at Neomodafinil . If you do start taking it, I suggest start including also milk thistle with it to help alleviate the workload on your liver. Definitely helps my focus and energy levels.
Adrafinil didnt do much for me plus its suppose to be liver toxic so if one wants a substance that they want to use more regularly then id avoid adrafinil. Armodafinil works but not keen on it, hard to explain, feels roughing??? Out of the 3 modafinil i think is the best and keep doses low 50 to 100mg. I think peoples expectations initially are alot high and think its going to hype them up. For me it feels like it turns on more of my brain especially if down on sleep.
Decently comparable. As previously stated it takes approximately 45 minutes to convert into modafanil. Might stack with milkthistle to help avoid liver toxicity.
You'll need about 3x as much Adrafinil as Modafinil to get a similar effect. As for R-Modafinil, it will last >10 hours, whereas Adrafinil is more like 5. Modafinil is a bit of both, in terms of effects.Armodafinil isn't a derivative though. It's just only one of the stereo-isomers (mirror image, in this case) of Modafinil. Racemic (equally mixed) Modafinil consists of S-Modafinil and R-Modafinil. They both affect the body differently because our enzymes/proteins are usually biased towards one of them. In this case, R-Modafinil lasts longer than S-Modafinil.
Adra takes a while to come on and doesn't feel as strong, but they are similar
I seem not to tolerate modafinil unable to tolerate 100mg. Never tried the other. Bums me out too cause I hear such great response from other people’s report too. And I would benefit greatly with my daily struggles as I have struggled with ADD all my life. Modafinil gives me relentless headaches even with alpha GPC choline and plenty of water. It also makes me drowsy, watery eyes, and gives me brain fog. Quite the opposite of the desired effects. I have tried spacing them days apart as well. Best I can tolerate is 50mg twice a week but even then seems to only give me minimal alertness and motivation the headaches are less (tolerable) but jeez the effects are less too so... sucks for me. :(
