Well, that is very subjective, so it does feel much, much smoother than Ritalin, to me (and many others have said this as well.) Modafinil releases glutamate in the brain, which is also what happens when you have a stroke. If it is considered "lighter", that is again subjective.

I have been off and on amphetamines for years. I may feel a bit 'hung over' for a day, if I quit suddenly. I have had way, way harder times trying to lower my Effexor dose.
