Well, the answer is fiction, but heres my say on the topic.
I read that OP was skeptical of modafinil
and that its possibly weak, which swip would not know for sure. However, its way too expensive to consider. Adrafinil, on the other hand, is great for study and has a better price range. It depends what swiy is looking for though. Thinking in terms of methylphenidate
, thats an edgy stimulant that can lead to agitation, or over-stimulation to a swip. At higher doses, its more of a toy and not a tool used for focus. Adrafinil is very calm but focused. Its very hard to find something like that. In a sense, I think that would be what one is looking for; calm-focus.
As I run from left-field here, swip can tell you another great candidate is low dose 2cp studies. 3 out of 3 times, a low dose of <5mg proved to be a striking drug
for focus. It even surpassed adrafinil studies, because of a slight difference. cp had more of a drive or will to work(study) whereas adrafinil was a calm-awake. A thought of "one can study because I feel refreshed, but not too interested," was perceived on Adraf.
swip has found cat derivatives to do little for one's focus so far, but he has not dived deeper in to the more exotic ones like ethylcat or buphedrone, because I do not see a future.. They seem to be just CNS stimulants
, making sex a prime subjects. and Once thats there... well, we're back at square one.
Currently, my random animal is experimenting with hydergine. This has proved very curious. Not quite like adrafinil, he says. Its like a curious-calm. He seems to have a higher cognitive ability and can think clearer, but still can be tired and sleep. Clarity is the key in hydergina. If clarity is whats strived, this could be a good place to examine. Not quite sure on memory retention. He said its still in trial, but sees promise.
The only 2ct7 death I read of is trivial. you shrug at the death. High doses of Ephedrine the day of and before, followed by a research chemical
, 30mg insufflated!. I dont know, maybe swip is the loner for seeing that as foolish. However, it is scheduled and should not really be considered.
"Looks to SWIM like there is one nootropic RC, at least purported to be, 2C-T-7...at the 1mg dose level per day perhaps, according to an online encyclopedia site."
What about Lazar's studies on 2cd? That structures was documented pretty extensively on nootropic effects.
Either way, swip thinks it all comes back to low dose phenethylamines
being an interesting place to explore. However, its mostly hearsay and has to be titrated personally. Hope that helps.
