Place holder post for now. Started taking adrafinil as an experiment and it really helps with feeling awake and ready. My favorite effect is the one it has on my vision. Normally, especially when I’m tired, my eyes have a hard time staying focused on things (strabismus) and because of this I have a hard time maintaining eye contact with people. On adrafinil My eyes stay open and straight and my vision improves. It gives me a confidence from being awake and having better vision. I am a bit worried about the cardiovascular effects however.
