Like any other product on this planet, Modafinil also has some side effects, and this is nothing that should alarm people, mostly because the possible side effects are rather mild. There are no life threatening side effects, which is the most important thing about this smart drug, and whatever little side effects some people feel can be healed with some rest. But, just to be sure, let’s get over the side effects that this product might cause, so that people could see that it’s nothings serious.

Before Mentioning the Side Effects

The most important thing to note here before we start listing the possible side effects is the fact that only about 5% of people that take this product experience any side effects, and even those 5% of people that take these brain pills only experience the extremely mild ones.

Are Side Effects Normal?

So, as we have already said, the side effects that people could experience while taking these pills are pretty much the “usual” side effects, the side effects that could occur no matter what kind of a medication a person is taking. Now, this does not mean that every single person taking this drug is going to experience them; we have already mentioned that only about 5% of people do experience any of them – usually the mildest side effects possible. Of course, this goes only for the people that stick to directions and don’t abuse this product in any way; those that abuse will most likely experience side effects, with the people taking an exceeded dosage of Modafinil being the “usual suspects”. The greater the dosage taken, the bigger the risk of experiencing at least some of the side effects.

In the video below, Steve talks about some of the mild side effects of Modafinil.

The Most Common Side Effects

As we have already mentioned, some of the most common side effects that a person might experience while taking these brain pills include the usual ones that can be found in most medications on this world: dizziness, headache, nervousness, congestion, drowsiness, sleeplessness, stomach problems, diarrhea, nausea, or back pain. Of course, as we have already mentioned more than once, this does not mean that everyone taking Modafinil is going to experience these side effects; not will most people taking it experience them; only about 5% of people taking this product have reported experiencing side effects. And what’s also important to note, no one experiences all of them – the most one person could experience is one or two.

Other Side Effects

There are also some side effects that almost never occur, but should still be presented here. This means that the chances of experiencing these side effects is even smaller than the chances of experiencing the above mentioned ones; however, they should still be mentioned to you here in order for you to have a clear picture of this product. These side effects that almost never occur include rashes, hives, mouth sores, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, blistering skin, and swollen limbs.

What to Do?

If you experience any side effects, you should immediately contact your doctor, no matter how mild they might be. You can never be too safe, and maintaining your health is one of the most important things in this world.
