Improved Mood 2,121 1 following raenamari
Don't have the drive and motivation doing your work and staying up late at night? Well then, this stack may be of great help for you. With Sulbutiamine enhancing your memory and focus, it also supercharges your mood and motivation. Modafinil on the other hand, effectively promotes wakefulness as you accomplish your work more efficiently.

Health Notes & References

Although the exact mechanism of Modafinil is not fully understood, its wake-promoting effects may be attributed as being an adrenergic receptor agonist. Modafinil activates brain peptides called orexins or hypocretins which in turn, increases dopamine, norepinephrine and histamine levels thus promoting wakefulness and increasing energy levels. Moreover, the improvement of the user's memory and function can be attributed by the enhanced neuronal sommunication brought about by the positive modulation of Glutamate receptors and the inhibition of Glutamate breakdown.

It should be administered in the morning for treating narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea, and one hour prior to work in those with shift work disorder. It can be taken with or without food. The 400 mg dose may not be more effective than the 200 mg dose. Modafinil is generally taken in the morning to promote wakefulness. Since it has a long half-life, it should not be administered later than noon time so as not to interfere with sleeping at night. For shift work disorder, a 200mg dosage should be taken an hour prior to work.

Important Safety Information:
-Do not drink alcohol when using Modafinil. Since Modafinil may cause dizziness, consumption with alcohol may worsen the effects.
-Contact your doctor right away if there is development of rash since Modafinil usage is strongly associated with serious skin conditions (e.g. Steven-Johnson syndrome).
-Modafinil is not approved for use by children and should be used with caution with the elderly since they are more sensitive to its effects.
-Consult with your doctor first if you are pregnant or breast-feeding a child.
Side Effects:
Headache, nausea, nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, and difficulty sleeping may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Dosage Compound Frequency Dates Notes
Modafinil, a drug under the class of wakefulness promoting agents that is mainly used to treat narcolepsy ( a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness), other sleep disorders and shift work sleep disorder seems to have an impressive nootropic property via increasing levels of stimulatory neurotransmitters in the brain. This drug is used to promote wakefulness and helps you stay awake during long hours of work especially for people whose work schedules interfere with the normal sleep routine. However, we should take note that Modafinil does not make up for the lack of sleep and is not used to treat tiredness on people who were deprived of sleep. Moreover, its wakefulness-promoting properties promotes increase in the individual's energy and attentiveness and has been shown to produce significant cognitive benefits due stimulation of dopamine receptors, including increased learning capacity, better memory and faster recall.
Sulbutiamine is one of the most motivating nootropics owing to its ability to affect Dopamine levels in the brain. However, this should only be taken only if needed and not every day since tolerance to this drug can quickly develop.
Phenylpiracetam is essentially Piracetam with a phenyl group attached to it. This new structure in turn, increases the drug's potency by allowing its molecules to pass the blood-brain barrier more easily. Although the exact mechanism of Phenylpiracetam is not fully understood, its boosting effects can be attributed to its close resemblance of phenylethylamine, an organic compound known for its stimulatory effects. The added structure of the phenyl group then increases the affinity of Norepinephrine and Dopamine- the neurotransmitters responsible for vigilant concentration, cognitive alertness and motor control. It also raises Noradrenaline levels in the brain thus enhancing physical performance as well.
Alpha-GPC is the most effective type of Choline which increases the production, synthesis, and secretion of acetylcholine, the brain chemical that is important for memory and learning functions. Also, instead of being a precursor to phosphatidylcholine (PC), GPC is actually a metabolite of PC which is important for the communication between neurons. A dose of 400mg is taken 2x daily.
