Hi tensor,

I take 200mg of modafinil as soon as I wake up & again at midday. Otherwise I just can't make it through the afternoon. Sometimes I've taken 300mg twice a day but honestly, I don't think it does any more than the 2 x 200. Had to try, hey?

One thing my sleep doc is adamant about (and he's the professor in charge of the sleep disorders unit) is the need to take regular breaks to reset your sensitivity. He says MINIMUM is taking every second weekend off - no modafinil. I wanted to change to monthly but he told me it was too long. Ideally, he says it should be every weekend off.

So that's what I do - 2 out of every 14 days I skip the modafinil. Admittedly, it's not the greatest feeling & I don't get much done on those 2 days, but it's getting easier because I know what to expect now. BTW, I certainly don't get "withdrawals" - I just feel a bit "down" and unproductive.

But when I take it on the following Monday morning, it feels as good as it was when I first started.

My doc says this is essential, and yet I rarely hear people here talk about giving themselves a break. It really does help. I strongly suggest you work it into your life.

Take Care ;)

Mr Molybdenum.
