I have ADD. Looking to replace stimulants (Adderall and Vyvanse) with nootropics because they make me feel shitty. I've done some research already. So far it seems that Modafinil is my best rout, although it requires a prescription which I'm not sure I can get. Don't want to do Adrafinil because I'm looking for something to take regularly for school and don't want to fuck my liver.
Modafinil seems to be the only thing strong enough to effectively drop the amphetamines for to me so far.
I need something like the stimulants to get myself to focus. Especially after taking them for the majority of my life. It's pretty difficult to function without them. Stuff like caffeine and Theanine doesn't cut it.
And I don't drink soda or eat fast food more than a couple of times a month at most. And I just cut sugar out completely.
The only times I really get anxiety or depression is when I'm on amphetamines. It's one of the many reasons why I'm trying to get off of them.
I'm looking for any and all benefits really. But my primary concern is focus and general cognitive function improvement that will be significant enough for me to not need the amphetamines.
I considered stuff like Alpha Brain as a starter, or just trying L-tyrosine, but from what I read, the affect they have is too subtle to be a viable replacement.
