I know weight loss is a common side effect of modafinil. That is ok for me since I want to lose anyway. Does anyone know the mechanisms behind it? It\\\’s not a traditional stimulant. Same diet, amount of food, exercise… but don\\\’t lose like when on modafinil. maybe even less exercise since it\\\’s easy to sit focused on one thing for hours on modafinil. forskolin is supposed to raise CAMP levels similarly like afinil but doesn\\\’t have the same effect on me.
