No, I can't say I have ever felt that from modafinil. Methylphenidate - absolutely..! Man I hate that drug. Wish I could sell all the boxes I have of it (from before I got on to the cheap modafinil). Yet strangely if I were to sell it, I would be Babbleing from the inside of the local prison for sure..! ;)

From the modafinil data sheets:

1. Most side-effects subside after a few weeks without reducing the dose.

2. The following are RARE side effects (modafinil vs placebo):
* Chest pain (3% vs 1%)
* Tachycardia (2% vs 1%)

So your feelings of tightness in the chest could be mild "chest pain" as per above. Then again, tightness in the chest is also a symptom of anxiety. I would suggest either lowering the dose of modafinil, or splitting it between morning & midday to see if that stops the feeling. Lastly, you could try .5mg Xanax with it. If it's anxiety related, the Xanax should clarify that for you.

I have a few good PDFs I've collected over the years. Msg me with an e-mail address & I'll send them to you.

Take Care :)
