Steps on How to Take Adrafinil the Right Way
So, you like me want to get more performance out of your grey matter. Since I’m writing this on this website, you’d gather that the simple answer would be to take nootropics. And this is where you are wrong. Not very wrong, but maybe a bit off.
While you’re right about nootropics, there are several other important factors that determine the efficacy of the drug.
Adrafinil – What you need to know
These are a few things you need to find the answers to before you embark on taking nootropics:
- What nootropics you’re going to take?
- The dosage levels of these brain supplements?
- How you’re going to take it? (powder, tablet)
- How often are you going to take it?
- Do you have a plan to cycle it?
Getting answers to these questions needs a lot of research and will take time. I hope to save you some of the trouble by answering these questions for you about a nootropic that has been around for decades and comes recommended by a lot of people who are into brain supplements. I’m of course talking about adrafinil.
Adrafinil has been used by people for a long time and has found acceptance by people from various walks of life. While it is a prodrug to modafinil, a powerful nootropic drug in its own right, adrafinil can be obtained easier as it is an OTC drug. It is also cheaper than modafinil. All this has ensured that adrafinil made a name for itself in the brain supplement market.
My Research on Adrafinil
I turned to adrafinil because I was finding it impossible to justify the time, effort and money to procure modafinil. While modafinil does have more potency, getting used to a regular supply of modafinil was never going to happen because of the hoops and hurdles a person had to jump through to get their hands on it. Things had to change.
I already knew there was adrafinil to back me up, but I never got it because I didn’t need to until now. When I did go through what adrafinil could actually give me, I was surprised to find out that there were a lot of things that I was overlooking. Let’s look at some of the benefits of adrafinil.
Adrafinil offers several benefits of which these are some of the more important.
- Increased overall energy levels
- Improved mental acuity
- Higher levels of productivity
- Increased memory
- Improved focus and attention span
How to take Adrafinil
Adrafinil can be ordered in bulk but you need to take care that you order it from the right people or it can end up being a large cache of plain white powder. It is important to find trusted sources to get your adrafinil from. When I bought it online, I look for GMP certified packaging. This is a good indicator as to what you’re buying is genuine rather than fake. Never opt for vendors that have “huge bargain” prices as these tend to be fake more often than not.
Since adrafinil is water soluble, I heated up some water and put in the adrafinil powder and stirred a bit. I found that the adrafinil completely dissolved. This is one way of finding out if you have the legitimate drug – adrafinil dissolves completely in water. If you have a cloudy solution, then it definitely isn’t the real deal. I started with just 100mg and I’d recommend that you do as well if you aren’t used to it.
You can also take it in the form of a capsule which you can make right at home. Another thing I found was that about a week after I started taking it, the effect seems to be less pronounced. This is when I learned that you need to cycle these for maximum efficacy. I would say a week on and week off worked great for me and it should for you as well. This can prevent undesirable side effects that normally manifest nootropic drugs.
My final dosage at the time of writing this is about 300mg. While there is a lot of chatter about how 600 mg is safe, I was getting pretty good results with half of it so I didn’t want to push my luck.
This short primer should help you get started on adrafinil. A critical factor that you need to consider is that since adrafinil is metabolized in the liver into modafinil, it puts a bit of strain on it. If you are going to use adrafinil long term, it’d be best to consult your doctor before you do so. It is better to be safe than sorry.
