Thanks for the message Wendy. I really appreciate it. I was looking for something that would enable me to need less sleep because I seem to need 9 1/2 hrs sleep at night at least, usually more, to feel decent. Anything below that I would start having concentration problems and be regularly tired...

I have read a lot from the search menu on Adrafinil and Modifinil. It was actually one of the reasons I thought it might be good for me. People like IsoM seem to love it. Here's a quote from him that I find kind of ironic after you mentioned ADHD... "Seeing that I have ADHD, on adrafinil I can be as hyper & perky as normally, but with a calmness I'd never experienced" He also goes in other posts to say he has better memory, less depression, less fatigue and generally feels great on the stuff withouht any of the side effects of other drugs.

So far I must admit I'm feeling pretty good today. I got about 8hrs of sleep last night and my concentration levels seem to be better than normal and I also feel pretty good about my future right now and want to do something productive with my life, more so than normal.

One reason I like the drug is because it was a type four drug which supposedly means it's a realitively safe drug compared to most drugs out there. It also doesn't seem to have a lot of the nasty side effects that other drugs have. I did read about the Liver Enzyme tests that should be done every three months on Adrafinil but Modafinil doesn't seem to have those problems.

I must admit I don't know much about ADHD. I'll have to look into that. I never thought I could have a problem like that because I was always into thinking games like chess, I could play a game for hrs in tournaments although my memory was usually worse than others when playing it. I could remember opening chess lines when studying them from a book but couldn't remember past games I played and the mistakes I should have learned from them when I was thinking about my next move in a game. Also if someone talked to me it would ruin my concentration and I would play poorly. So I don't know if I have a problem in that area or not.
