MODAFINIL? Bad side effects, long term with usage of 400 mg./day?

Posted by Gene Ames, Jr. @gamesjr, Sep 22, 2019

Does anyone have experience with long term usage of Modafinil, at 400 mg per day? could that dosage backfire and eventually cause the extreme daytime fatique it is initially taken to prevent?

Hi @gamesjr, I'm tagging @sandytoes14 @1942daa @johnhans @abopp2022 @peach414144 @oldkarl and @predictable in hopes they may be able to offer their opinions and offer you support.

Are you currently on modafinal? What is your experience so far?

Hi, @gamesjr – here is some Mayo Clinic information on modafinil that may be helpful https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/modafinil-oral-route/description/drg-20064870.

Also curious whether you are taking this medication currently, and if so, how it's going?

Hi, @gamesjr – wondering how things are going with your sleep? Are you taking or considering taking modafinil?

Are you hoping to address a shift work sleep disorder, or another sleep issue?

Because of exccessive daytime tiredness I took 400 mg Modafinal for two or three years but stopped three months ago at the orders of my PCP after discovering and removing a bad parathyroid. Still fighting insomnia and much improved daytime tiredness and wish I could at least take 200 mg of Modafinal
