Use of smart drugs such as modafinil have gone up almost 300% between 2015 and 2017 a study in the International Journal of Drug Policy stated in June of 2018. This informati0on is based on an international drug usage survey. The survey is done annually, anonymously and online. The survey in 2015 was taken by about 30,000 people, which the 2018 survey was taken by almost 80,000 people.
The US had the highest rate of pharmacological cognitive enhancement (PCE) among respondents. Almost 30% of American respondents to the survey say they had taken a PCE (modafinil, armodafinil, other nootropics) at least once within the preceding 12 months. This is up from 20% in the 2015 survey.
In terms of the increasing usage of nootropics, Europe was far ahead of the game with countries like France going from 3% usage to 16% and the United Kingdom from 5% in 2015 to 23 percent in 2017.
The survey went on to find that almost half of the people who used study pills like modafinil got the pills from friends, 10 percent go them from online pharmacies, 6 percent got them from family members and only 4 percent said they had actual prescriptions.
With the rise of discreet payment systems such as Bitcoin, buying Modafinil and other nootropics online are becoming the easiest, cheapest and safest way to buy nootropics.
According to this survey, only 4 percent of PCE – modafinil – nootropics users have prescriptions.
96% of the smart drugs being taken to increase cognitive performance are bought without a prescription.
In the realm of medication without prescriptions, it is thought to be much cheaper, and safer to buy your nootropics from an online pharmacy versus random people. With online pharmacies, there are support professionals to answer your questions and a company that stands behind its products.
