The Skinny on Modafinil and Weightloss

modafinil pillI’m regularly asked about Modafinil and Weightloss, no surprise in a culture where obesity is the norm and everyone wants a quick fix or magic bullet to make them slim and healthy without too much effort.

Modafinil works in part by stimulating dopamine production- dopamine is the “reward hormone” that makes you feel satisfied and happy. Increased energy+feeling satisfied=less hunger. If you have problems with appetite control, emotional eating, or boredom eating then yes, Modafinil can certainly help you to lose weight as you will have more energy and are not going to feel as hungry. Use this as a kick start to becoming more aware of how you eat, what you eat, and factor in some exercise- yey energy! and you will more than likely drop some stubborn pounds.

Do not rely on Modafinil to completely fix any weight issues you have by itself, because if you stop taking it and haven’t taken the time to improve your diet, any weight loss will go right back on.

Modafinil was originally marketed as a eulogic- a wakefulness promoting agent to combat narcolepsy-since that time it has shown amazing results in other fields such as depression, anxiety, OCD, impulse control disorders, ADHD and ADD. I find that Modafinil is an added boost to my personal accountability- I already enjoy a healthy lifestyle and watch my weight, food choices and I love to work out (Yey lifting!)- Modafinil synergizes effectively with this and helps me to reach my goals with it’s sustained energy and mood-lifting bonuses.

If you want a little help breaking through initial cravings and bad habits, Modafinil will do just that- but you need to take the help it gives and build on it. Use it as a crutch and you’ll be replacing one addiction or habit with another. If you need help staying focused and keeping your mood up, beating anxiety at the gym or a break from obsessive thoughts so that you CAN take the first steps to losing weight, yes, Modafinil is for you. Ultimately, discipline and accountability need to come from within- that’s not to say we don’t all need a little push now and then 🙂

Studies have shown reports of a correlation between Modafinil and weightloss, although it is not formally marketed as a weightloss drug.
