Not to deal with a medically diagnosed disorder, but for pure productivity.

What are your thoughts on these?

Huh? Doctors won't prescribe anything worth a damn nowadays unless you jump through a ton of hoops.

You don't have to get them through a doctor, but I don't think this is true. Multiple people in my office use mental scrips which they did get through doctors, at least two people at my gym use them  (they were discussing in locker room a few weeks back) and our therapist asked me if I was interested in some type of  med when my wife and I did a few marriage counseling sessions. I don't know if you're saying that the stuff most people are getting isn't very good, but I don't think they are that hard to get.

Yes, I was going to ask if you were not, because that definitely changes things.

I used to buy something called "stablon" off of the internet. European Antidepressant that really works quite well, and has no patent here. Sadly, of course, they are passing a bill to make it a schedule 2 substance in my state now.

I used adderal a handful of times in college for studying. Shit was a wonder drug for focus, but there was a crash. I see people throughout the day from time to time that I know are using it, well, abusing it.

Only thing worthwhile I'd say would be modifinil. Never used it myself, but compared to the alternatives like Adderal (amphetamine sulphate) it seems "safer", in that it won't destroy your appetite like common stims do. No clue how rich piana would be getting all his meals in on Adderal, when 25mg of ephedrine will kill my appetite for 12 fucken hours.

Noopept is interesting. It's supposed to increase focus, it's a Russian made "smart drug." For some reason it makes me loopy but it's a powerful off the shelf anti depressant. Cheap too.

Mike Quinn used cocaine for focus.  Someone told me Stephen King did too, and I searched online and confirmed that.  I have heard other people say the same thing.  At first I thought it was just people rationalizing their drug consumption - and maybe it also is that - but I have heard enough people say this to believe some people do experience this effect.  I wonder if they could just get a prescription for something instead.

You'd be really surprised at the things some people do just to add a couple pounds of muscle. See other threads on this board for details.

Modafinil and its offshoots seem to be the drugs of choice around this office.

There was a mini-controversy going on at my office because one  team member  advised an intern to look into modafinil. This particular intern is "likeable" but a very slow worker.

Modafinil for mental productivity and Adderall for physical productivity.

Really? What industry are you in? Maybe it's a generational thing but I can't imagine this being openly discussed in a corporate setting (at least one that doesn't want to encourage lawsuits).

Marketing/advertising. And, yes, the use of prescription/recreational drugs is discussed relatively "openly", but the mini-controversy entailed parsing the language of exactly what was said to the intern.  My current office is predominately made up of under-45 workers, but the oldest skewing firm I worked for  was the least uptight.

etaIt might be helpful to also add that  I live in NYC.

Adderall is hard as hell to get around here. Most people seem to be flush with stuff like Lyrica nowadays, which doctors prescribe for random shit like anxiety.
