I've used Adrafinil, which I believe is pretty much the same thing. I
really couldn't notice any effect. If there was one, it was minor.

Unless Modafinil is much more effective than Adrafinil, this seems unlikely
to me.

Thanks for the information Patrick. I stress my observations are
subjective, but I do doubt the effectiveness of Modafinil. Can you tell me
if it is indeed just about the same as Adrafinil?

You can buy Adrafinil from Quality Health:

  and from Masters Marketing in England. No URL handy but Google will find it.
Both seem to be very reliable.
