However if you read European Neuropsychopharmacology’s source material, their abstract states:
We found that whilst most studies employing basic testing paradigms show that modafinil intake enhances executive function, only half show improvements in attention and learning and memory, and a few even report impairments in divergent creative thinking. In contrast, when more complex assessments are used, modafinil appears to consistently engender enhancement of attention, executive functions, and learning. Importantly, we did not observe any preponderances for side effects or mood changes.
Andrew Sinicki offers a very balanced, experiential, and objective view on his experience with modafinil. His information will help you make an informed decision.
