My Modafinil Fueled All Nighter – With Cognitive Tests

Night Owler

Pulling an all-nighter is something most of us have done from time to time. Whether it’s changing shift patterns, cramming for exams or meeting an all important work deadline, there’s usually a reason as to why a night’s sleep gets sidelined. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day and it’s time to burn the midnight oil. I’ve been intending to test the efficacy of modafinil for an all-nighter for a good few months, particularly after reading the following 64 hour sleep deprivation study.

And while there’s many well established methods of coping with procrastination, I’ve found lighting a fire under me with a stimulant/drive/motivation stack can be highly effective. Over the past 2 years, I’ve experimented with a number of nootropics and stimulants which I’ve found very helpful for getting me through the most banal of tasks. Below are three

I’ve experimented with all of my usual nootropics including modafinil and would like to share how things have gone. How I’ve Gone About This Certainly nothing too scientific. I take CILTEP Monday-Friday with a few slight exceptions and it’s always been a serving of 3 capsules first thing in the morning.
