Here’s a video clip of CNN’s Don Lemon doing an interview about the effects of Modafinil, nootropics and smart drugs.
Don Lemon interviews successful internet executive Dave Asprey who tells of the increased focus and the fact that he would never have gotten through business school without modafinil.
Asprey says he has tried other smart drugs and none of them have had the effect of Provigil (the generic is called Modafinil). He says he’s tried Adderall and believes it’s not healthy and that he feels coffee will give you the same effect.
Asprey was quizzed about the side effects and said that the side effects of modafinil, in his experience, are less risky than even Tylenol. Asprey says that he has study groups that have looked into this and these were his findings. He quipped that he is more concerned about the effects of Nutrasweet than he is with side effects of Modafinil.
