Mine smells pretty bad.
As it's a result of the metabolization process, probably not.
Fortunately it's never been a problem in this camp, but I'd be interested (from an academic standpoint ) if anyone knows anyway to adjust it.
Are you taking any other supplements?
I am currently taking multi vitamins with the modafinil, and I think that it is the vitamins that causing the weird smell.
You can never go wrong with drinking more water
I've had multivitamins make my urine bright yellow from the B-vitamins, but have never noticed a funky smell there.
You have to drink insane amounts of water to get water intoxication... usually while sweating a lot at the same time. It happens sometimes when marathon runners sweat out all the salt in their system and drink a lot of water.
In general, though, you are definitely safe drinking more water. You could drink 5+ gallons of water a day and still not get water intoxication--especially if you're also consuming sodium along the way, which you probably are if you're a human being in a developed country.
When I take multivitamins, my girlfriend always says the bathroom smells like a dying old man after I pee.
Maybe you should open the window or get some bathroom spray? We use a diffuser like this (http://www.johnlewis.com/jo-malone-pomegranate-noir-scent-surround-diffuser-165ml/p231745704) which keeps things smelling pretty good in there!
Yeah. Those things are nice. I always forget to refill them when they run out, though.
My pee has never smelled bad after taking modafinil or armodafinil. Asparagus never fails though!
Around a gallon in under an hour can do it. I had it happen to me in my younger days. The vomiting and the seizure weren't very fun.
To get back on topic, I usually drink a ton of water every day and my urine rarely gets a noticeable odor from modalert or modvigil.
I have never had stinky pee either from mod! Did you ever figure out why?
I just did some googling...
Apparently, only some people have the genetic enzyme that breaks down the compound that creates the stinky urine. Also, some people are unable to smell it, because of your genetic make up, even if their pee does stink!
Pretty damn cool
Well, for those of you who don't experience the foul odor, it is like a combination of sulfur and rotten fruit. I've noticed that if I don't take a break at least once a week, the smell creeps into my sweat as well.
I recommend drinking a lot of water on days you take modafinil (which you should be doing regardless if you take moda or not) in addition to staying away from other odor causing foods/compounds like asparagus.
Personally I've never noticed any sort of change in the way my urine smells from taking a multivitamin, which I've now been taking on a daily basis for almost 3 months.
Interesting. Do you have a source to back up this claim? I guess it would make a lot of sense.
you are not supposed to snort it swallow it, been on it since 2001 never been a problem here.
S/He's not talking about the smell of modafinil, but the way their urine smells after taking it. I doubt many people normally snort (or swallow) urine.
. Doha snort the modafinil. (Joke).
Have you seen some of the porn sites (about the urine)
