Would keep avoiding: There is no evidence that any supplement is needed in healthy people for energy or well-being or anything else.

Yes: Adrafinil is the first of a class of drugs in the "alerting" class. Adrafinil is the prototype, available in Europe.

Be careful with stronger pain meds as they can make you drowsy so exercise would not be a good idea. ...Read more
