Flying over a disputed war-zone, a fighter pilot feels himself becoming fatigued. He pops a pill, his reflexes speed up, and fatigue drops away like a veil.
He becomes more alert and he can finish his mission with a precision a finesse that borders on the superhuman. What is this mysterious pill that the military is now routinely using in the combat zones of the world?
It is a smart drug called Provigil and it is only one of a whole pharmacology that is being used to boost the powers of America’s service personnel.
Today we will take a look at this drug and see what can do and how it can even help you in school while hitting the books, make better decisions at work, and even give you the edge in the stock market or boardroom.
Originally created as Modafinil in the 90’s it became an instant hit with workers, students, and executives. It is still the drug of choice for the military in the EU. In Asian nations, students are using it to garner spectacular grades and scoring much higher than we score in the US score. Therefore, this perceived superiority over America may in fact due to a little blue pill rather than actual performance in the academic arena.
The French company Cephalon has since lost its monopoly on the drug Modafinil, which is a proscribed drug in the US.
However, it is prescribed for a number of conditions and workers who work nights are routine users of this drug legally, as they only have to claim that they are having trouble adjusting to the shift in their sleep patterns.
This legal loophole opened a floodgate of use in America starting around 2007.
Well, in a nutshell, Provigil accelerates your cognitive abilities and renders you immune to the effects of fatigue and stress.
People are flocking to their doctors in record numbers and getting it prescribed to help them get the edge over their competition.
In the years between 2007 and 2011, doctors wrote prescriptions for this drug in record numbers. Its use rose a whopping 75%. Doctors know why it’s being used and they don’t seem to mind that they are walking a fine line between legality and outright criminality.
But, the drug effects on business and education are unmistakable. The rest of the world is using it and if we don’t we will be left in the lurch behind the Chinese, Germans, and the Brits who routinely use it in their daily business dealings, schoolwork, and in their military.
This in the States is overlooked, due to the prodigious amounts of work that is being put out by workers, software engineers. Students that are competing for top jobs is causing additional pressure for its continuing use.
For example, you can work continuously for 12 hours and not be fatigued. This equates to thousands of lines of computer instructions and webpages, which bring in the customers to IT firms and software/web developers, making millions in revenue.
Usually, one pill taken in the morning will last you through until lunchtime. 200 mg is the usual recommended dosage, however, many take up to 400 mg without ill effects. This 2 pill a day regime seems to work for those who are in high stress and mission critical jobs. Stock market analysts and business tycoons swear by their morning pill, as they call it and in some cases brag about their usage of the drug.
The news media has done many reports and documentaries about the use of Nootropics and particularly the use of Provigil in Business, the military, and in universities. This has resulted in its banning on most American campuses. However, as noted in the same media outlets nothing seems to have stemmed the tide of use.

Well, first of all, it has virtually no side effects if taken for short periods of time with a break in usage. 9-12 weeks seems to be the safe limit and if one follows this guideline it can be taken for an almost infinite time period. This makes it one of the most heavily used of the Nootropics, even though it is listed as a Schedule III drug.
It is also one of the longest in use Nootropics around and the US military is one of the drug’s biggest advocates for use. It has a history that shows that millions have used it with no ill effects during 25 or so years of use.
This and the superhuman abilities it conveys to those who use it give it a siren call that is almost impossible to ignore.
Many use it to stay awake and alert at work. Executives use it to make better decisions and outthink their opposition. Why this drug does, this is not as yet understood and studies are inconclusive at this time. But students swear by it and their test results bear them out. In China Nootropics are sold OTC and you can buy smart drugs at corner drugstores all over Asia.
We in the US use Nootropics on the sly and often take them in the washroom where no one can see. So, the exact numbers of people that are using Provigil to get ahead are unknown and this secrecy builds a mystique, which says, the ones who are at the top of the heap got there because they are somehow endowed with extraordinary abilities in endurance and cerebral cognizance.
America’s Military is also continuing its usage of this drug and even more advanced forms as well. So the future & ending of the Provigil saga is not yet written. New uses for it are being found every day and the numbers of people who are now using it are still on the rise in even larger numbers as articles like this one appear on the Web.The reality is, your future, may rely on the use of a tiny small pill taken at 5 a.m. before going to work, when and where none can see will decide if you excel at work or fall behind in salary or promotions.
