100mg. of Modifinil didn't do much for me. In the US, 200mg. pills are about $5 each, while 20mg. Ritalin pills are $.75, dex about the same, and Adderall about $1.50. Daily cost on Modifinil is $5 or $10/day, Adderall $3.00, Ritalin or dexamphetamine $1.50 (assuming 2/day is OK for you like it is for me).

I'm not convinced Modifinil is a better drug than the others, besides being far more expensive. I will try give it another chance though at higher dosages before drawing a conclusion. Ritalin did lose its effectiveness and I went to Adderall, which has been just fine. I wanted to try Modifinil for the same concerns over tolarance and withdrawall potential of the others. Withdrawall hasn't been a problem during weekend holidays I've taken and diminished effectiveness is minor too. If and until I need 2x as much and start noticing withdrawall symptoms, I'm happy with the cheaper drugs and doing my part to conserve healthcare dollars. If your doc requires an office visit for each 30-day supply, then Modifinil is more cost effective by allowing refills. That's how it is in the states where Modifinil is schedule IV and the others II.

Drug laws in the US are so stupid and a waste of money. Needing an office visit every month, while cigarettes are far more addictive and kill more people with no script needed at all. When tobacco products go to schedule I (no medical value), drug laws will gain more credibility.
