My Attempt Trying To Get A Modafinil Script.. :(
Went into the doctors office today to try and get a Modafinil script. He's a family doctor of mine for the past 16 years (I'm 27) So he has my health history and knows I don't have narcolepsy nor did I want to try and go down that route haha. I did go in a few months ago, telling him I do have some signs of adult ADD that do adversely effect my work performance etc.. I didn't ask for modafnil right off the bat and just said I'll try and deal with it, without a prescription. I went back today loaded with a few notes I had made + some common symptoms I have been experiencing (ADD related things) and highlighted sections of articles to reenforce my testimony. Anyways, we started having a conversation then it got down to prescription, he said most doctors prescribe antidepressants for adult ADD (prozac etc) I said I wasn't interested in anything like that or in adderall or ritalan. I then said I had done some homework and the only prescription drug I'd be interested in is Modafinl... I thought I was going to get it since I had come so prepared and was calm and cool about it, HOWEVER, he went on about the amphetamine like qualities it has, negative long terms effects and the chance for addiction. I battled a little bit with him letting him know I don't have any addiction problems but didn't want to seem to pushy. But I did not succeed.
Maybe in a few months I'll take another swing at it but he seemed so reluctant to prescribe it to me!! I have a good relationship with my doctor but yet still wasn't able to get modafinil . On a side note, I do have some ADD tendencies (who doesn't) but nothing that overly effects my performance but I do want to get my performance to the next level and wanted to give modafinl a try but just hate the idea ordering it from weird 3rd party sites and getting it shipped.... Anyways, just wanted to vent a bit haha. Maybe I will end up having to trust a website in the short term at least.. :-|
