How should modafinil be taken? How high should the dose be?

The key to getting the most out of modafinil is the right dosage. A standard dose is 200 mg, but we recommend trying 50 - 100 mg at the beginning. Every body is different and everyone reacts slightly differently to the drug. If you are happy with a lower dose, you can try the full 200 mg amount. If you use this method, you can experience the benefits but minimise the risk of initial side effects. As with any drug, your body builds up a tolerance. It is therefore advisable not to take modafinil more than twice a week, and also not to take it for a week every two months, to give your body time to adjust. There is no evidence that its dosage above 200 mg has a stronger effect. 100 mg can often be optimal for most people, because less is more. The half-life of modafinil is between 10 and 12 hours, so it is best for most people to take it in the morning, otherwise it will disrupt sleep. The largest amount of the chemical is in your bloodstream within two hours of taking it. Modafinil is metabolised in the liver and excreted during urination.
