*******www.youtube****/watch?v=u7rmNrydlls In this video I will discus What is Modafinil used for Modafinil is used in the treatment of narcolepsy, cataplexy, Obstructive sleep apnea, shift work sleep disorder, idiopathic hypersomnia and Other disorders characterized by hypersomnia or excessive sleepiness Modafinil is extensively used off-label for: Sleep suppression, combating sleep unrelated general fatigue (tired with enough sleep), Treating ADHD & ADD, as an aid to antidepressants, for increased energy, And also to improve cognitive functions like concentration, mental endurance and memory Modafinil is also used off-label for many other situations, including Opiate and cocaine addiction, Parkinson's Disease or schizophrenia, But, these uses are for the most part unsubstantiated In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well have an idea of what to expect Modafinil is best known under the trade name of Provigil® It has become accepted as the leading product for the treatment of narcolepsy, Sleeping in the daytime, cataplexy and a few other disorders involving the sleep-wake cycle But many have found it useful for helping them undertake intellectual work The nature of the stimulation induced by Modafinil Is distinctly different from that produced by other stimulants Being characterized by a particularly cerebral quality The most useful quality of Modafinil relates to mental endurance combined with A stable level of attention and a calming of the emotional system Simply put, you undertake a task and keep working on it until it is done Hours may pass and you retain the ability to focus The effect is NOT motivational, but It can make it easier to do tasks that you don't feel like doing and Know that you should be doing It gives the: �I'll just sit down and do it anyway� feeling If taken with a particular purpose in mind Modafinil increases the stick-with-it ability This has made Modafinil very attractive to students and others who Regularly and vigorously undertake intellectual work It is quite easy to fall asleep after a dose of Modafinil In addition, Modafinil does not seem to produce any post dose exhaustion It continues to work when taken consecutively for a number of days In fact, it seems to work even better the more you use it I am referring here to consistency of use, NOT dosage For Modafinil less is more, so keep the dosage as low as you can From what I've experienced, When completely ceasing the use of Modafinil you may sleep much longer than normal And it may produce some permanent changes in brain structure Similarly to how coffee increases the number of adenosine receptors This may be one of the pathways of Modafinil's addictive potential To minimize problems with the use of Modafinil - problems which clearly do exist It is critical to keep the dosage low and the pattern of use consistent More information can be found in the video: �How to use Modafinil� In closing, I would advise against using Modafinil In this video we have discussed What is Modafinil used for and A little bit about the subjective experience of its use If you want to discover things about Modafinil which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****
