I just found this study :(https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Luke_Clark/publication/11047855_Cognitive_enhancing_effects_of_modafinil_in_healthy_volunteers/links/00463525dbb5dd5f0b000000.pdf)
and this (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924977X15002497) systematic review which was published a month BEFORE you posted this video, which do show cognitive enhancing effects in healthy, non-sleep deprived individuals. Also, are you seriously using a package insert as your only reference? This review is laughable.
I have ADD and Modafinil does not improve my focus or memory. However, since one of the symptoms of ADD is sleepiness and sleepiness affects your focus and concentration, one could say that Modafinil helps here, indirectly. Also, Modafinil is relatively mild, Armodafinil works much better.
I appreciate that you're bringing an actually informed perspective to this topic on YouTube. That said, I have a wild new puppy, and as a result haven't slept through the night once for the past month. I've self-medicated with Modafinil, just a few days per week, and it does help. It's only a short-term scheme and I do assume I'm damaging myself. This is the sort of context in which I would recommend people consider it -- not in order to become Magic Bradley Cooper.
dude u suck, modafinil is also perscribed for ADHD and it helps you focus and feel motivated and oh yeah, wearing a tie and a shirt was the first red flag for me actually. everyone interested should try it and see how it affects them, as opposed to taking your mumbojumbo at a face value
It may help some people who have cognitive deficits, that its where in some studies it has had some success, but in many it hasn't even helped there. In intelligent people however its been shown to have the opposite effect. Lowering their scores and I may make a video about it in the future, if that kind of stuff interests people.
I disagree with this. I have seen many videos about this drug and you are 1 of a few people that say there is nothing to gain by taking this drug. I just don't see that as the case. Most people, some of them reputable, say that this drug helps with focus and fatigue.
Great video, very informative! I completely agree with everything you've said. I have been using it due to chronic fatigue and for long overnight shifts and I can safely say that the only thing I ever experienced is just the wakefulness of it. I believe the only thing that works for cognition and focus is Ritalin or other drugs in that category. Everything else, even racetams are bullshit in my opinion.
It's funny to see all of the "related videos" that are from the exact people you describe, promoting modafinil as a cognitive enhancement drug. I meet many high school and college students who think that they need this compound to operate at their academic best. They laugh when I ask about their diet, exercise regimen, sleep habits, alcohol/drug intake, etc. They usually have less than desirable answers to these questions which brings to mind the point you make about it benefiting brains that are in a deficient or diseased state. Perhaps many people are just so terrible at taking care of their bodies that they see results with modafinil? More likely, any results are due to wishful thinking/placebo effect. The only benefit I received from modafinil, prescribed to me by a doctor at the VA several years ago for sleep issues related to night shift work, was precisely what you and the studies describe: a boost to wakefulness/alertness. When I transferred to a new job, I discontinued the prescription.
It seems that quite a few people are ignorant of biochemistry and practically illiterate when it comes to scientific studies.
thank you for video:) some one whos not with user name some modafinil website, makes more sense:) agreed it keeps u a wake and being more focused in some cases might seems like u smarter :) it doesn't add any brain for sure, just helps to use what you have already, but with better focus perhaps.
+Cognitively Advanced Zygote Its taken from several studies. The ones that show improvement are studies preformed on those with cancer fatigue, MS, or other serious disease states. Some of them can be seen on places like pubmed for free, there are quite a few on there. Others you will have to pay $30-40 just to look at them, but since I work at a hospital, I have access to many of the medical journals for free. I'll put some links where possible on the free ones next time.
Sorry the question is kinda unrelated; Do you have a video on/ know much about Memantine? (Namenda) It has a history of its use in Alzheimer's/Parkinson's disease based off of my own research and is said to have a high potential for off-label use in ADHD and ASDs.
+Cognitively Advanced Zygote Not yet, its still a relatively new channel. That may be possible, I remember working at an insurance company I would always have at least on claim daily for it, but I had never seen one for an off label use like that. I'll look into it, that is an interesting thought.
