So I keep hearing about this pep pill Armodafinil
being hawked for $300 a bottle - the adverts are all over local radio and have become quite disconcerting. Have you actually looked at the side-effects?
Nausea, blistering in the eyes, trouble sleeping, hallucinations, dark urine, exaggerated sense of well-being (euphoria)...
It seems to be a stripped-down version of this stuff
The Consumerist ran a short article last year that I missed - the same questions popped up: is it REALLY
worth the risk? ..... the symptoms started me thinking, "this sounds familiar." Don't we have to get carded for cold medicine because of something eerily similar in effect?
Symptoms of meth and amphetamine ab/use...
Anxiety, general feeling of wellness, pupil dilation, talkativeness, hallucinations, loss of appetite... etc
So... what the freaking hell
is in this stuff? I mean, I know that they have to list every single thing that they found during testing but some of this stuff is absurd. Just how is this making it to the market at all, (even with a Rx needed for the previous branding)? I'm not really a fan of pharmaceuticals (in fact, I avoid synthesized or lab treated crap wherever/whenever possible) so I wouldn't touch it but I am curious how something like this made it through....
Does anyone else think this stuff sounds like a receipe for disaster?
