For people performing mission after mission with little down time, I wonder if amphetamines are ever distributed to the military?

Pilots flying numerous attack missions. Transport pilots moving stuff around the clock.  Guys on the ground. Surgeons working around the clock.

Are amphetamines ever distributed, something like Adderall?  Or is this just something that is not talked about.


Thank you for your time.

Pilots fly on more than JP8.

Search "go pills."

I think most of the world's militaries do that. IIRC, the German
military used methamphetamine extensively in WWII. I think the US used instead
dextroamphetamine, and continues to use it.

I believe amphetamines have been phased out for Modafinil. From what I read, it keeps you alert, but lacks the sense of euphoria that amphetamines provide.

I dated a girl for a long time that was diagnosed with ADD (debatable) that had a regular prescription for Adderall.  On two occasions she had an "overlap" and gave me one when I had a lot of things to get done when I had very little sleep.  WOW!  What a wonder drug for getting stuff done.  All the energy of caffeine with none of the jitteriness. It also gave me complete focus on the task at hand.  EVERYTHING got done that I wanted to do that day.  Unreal.  I have read that this is the popular drug for students when studying for an exam, and I understand why.  It gives you energy, and complete focus.

I like to joke that if you want to solve any economies' productivity, give them Adderall. Then again, you will have to deal with the whole junkie aspect in the long run.

Crew rest doesn't help for shit when you're stuck in a fighter flying over 24 hours straight from southern California to Bahrain.  Go pills at the 12 hour point and again at 18 and 21 hours.  Then bring down pills after landing.

That only works if you take it sporadically. And when you have your mind set on something.

After awhile, it gets to be that you need to take it just to be able to focus on making breakfast and change your clothes.

Also, from people I know who take it, they are easily distracted. One of my buddies used to just process forms all day for 12 hours at a time. Every once in awhile, he'd get distracted bout the office not being clean, and spend 4 hours cleaning every nook and cranny in the office because it bothered him and he wouldn't be able to concentrate on the forms otherwise.

He'd take them recreation-ally on the weekends in an attempt to play video games for hours on end, but would instead be distracted by things like his clothes not being in the correct color and sized coded order that his crazy brain dreamed up. So he spent hours devising the perfect way to organize his closet and then doing so.

Drugs do crazy shit to your brain kids... just sayin

I prescribe quite a bit of that.  It's a very interesting drug since it promotes wakefullness but doesn't prevent you from falling asleep.  So if you want to stay awake it will do that but won't cause insomnia.  It also doesn't have all the potential side effects of amphetamines like high blood pressure and psychosis if you take too much.

That's simply not true.  It enhances performance.  Now if you escalate the dosage you will run into problems, but as an emergency to stay awake it has its uses.

More info?

I take Vyvanse, but haven't had it in about three weeks and have realized I'm pretty much dependent on it. As such, I'm looking for alternatives, from more regular exercise to non-prescription drugs.

I was prescribed Modafinil after talking to my doctor about it, but holy shit it's expensive. Adrafinil is a prodrug for Modafinil, and is uncontrolled in the US; I can order it in bulk from South America or Israel without a prescription.

FWIW, I also occassionally take Piracetam and am interested in nootropic drugs in general. I'm not looking to do anything illegal, but anything that calms down my inner voice and allows me to focus is something I want to know more about.

My Doc prescribed me Modafil as part of what he called the Elvis Cocktail a few years ago. The other component was Ambien and all this was prescribed for jet lag.

Ambien to go to sleep and modafil to wake up.  I was on about a 12-15 trips to the Mid East per year rotation, 2-3 weeks down range and a couple weeks back....for over 4 years. I was a continual state of jet lag and to be honest my sleep patterns didn't return to normal for a number of years after that travel stopped.
