    Exams are near. I was just curious if anybody (or somebody you know) uses Smart Drugs(nootropics). These are substances that improve alertness and concentration. It can be a simple as a high dose of caffeine, specialist blends of vitamins and minerals or even low doses of illegal recreational drugs. Anything designed to make your brain reach peak performance.

    Have you tried anything?

    Caffeine pills
    Bio plus (basically caffeine with a bunch of B vitamins)
    Extra strong coffee
    Ritalin
    Low dose of Tik
    Cocaine
    B Vitamins
    Turmeric
    Ginseng
    Ginko Biloba

    Or anything else?

    Or are you super healthy and just rely on good nutrition and plenty of sleep?

    I use to use Bio plus but it made me more sleepy than alert. Now it is the natural way I am counting on.

    I would use some of my brothers ADD meds when I was desperate to stay up. My cousin faked ADHD to get the pills and she would drink them with red bull. Some of the smart kids in my school also used these pills to stay up!

    That sounds dangerous. Any negative effects involved?

    I’ve tried Ginkgo Biloba pills and Caffeine pills, I prefer Bio Plus. Although it may not be good for you I find it’s still better than Red Bull, which gives me a bad sugar crash (I don’t really get it from Bio Plus, and it works just the same as Red Bull)

    *Meep!*

    Gosh it was a while ago so I don’t really remember, I think it was about 4 a day? I still drink Bioplus tho, not regularly but whenever I have a late night or the morning after.

    Bio plus doesn’t work for me! My cousin told me her concision would make her feel tired if she missed her dose. I don’t think she takes it anymore, it was just for matric finals.

    Bio plus doesn’t work for me but Red Bull does and i’ve used it many times for allnighters. I also tried caffeine pills but mostly I just drink extra strong coffee. i’d like to try ADD medication but i don’t know where to get it!! They def help me to focus!

    I must say it screws up my sleep cycle for ages afterwards and i always regret it after the assignment is handed in. i usually feel like crap…exhausted but unable to sleep. 🙁

    Jeepers! Low dose of tik oh my gosh Simba!

    No no no – these man made meds are so bad for you, addictive and end up making you go loopy.
    All my friends who used to take ritalin or similar forms in school used to trip out, and focus really hard on random things like the patterns in their school bag, or the spaces between numbers!

    Stick to the natural stuff, there are loads of products out there that don’t have weird chemicals that will turn your brain into mulch. I’ve also heard that apples work wonders when you need to ‘wake up’ in the morning.

    Goodness, some good old Jacobs coffee and a peanut butter sandwich is all the energy I need! Those other drugs can’t be good for you. I am not entirely sure about the natural ones as I have never tried them, but Ritalin is very bad for you, and I wish it was not legal. I know many people who relied on it so heavily that they could not focus at all without it. I’ve also heard of fools who mix it with alcohol to get a “kick” and end up damaging their kidneys so badly! So silly.

    Well I have used the typical energy drink but that’s to keep me awake to write the actual test… I have read that caffeine intake can assist in more creative tasks, like writing but leaves you kinda scatter-brain for more specific tasks.

    I have only used Nootropics once, it was from PrimeSelf, but I am not sure if it is any better than other supplements.

    It worked, BUT damn these things are expensive.

    Who used them before, and how do they compare to the other Nootropic products?
