Modafinil Vendor Review: Duckdose

UPDATE: Duckdose has moved to Duckdose.ORG, the .COM is no longer working. The site is still being run by the same people just on a different domain.


Recently I purchased some modafinil from Duckdose. In case you don’t know what modafinil is, please refer to our writeup on modafinil

Duckdose is widely known in the modafinil nootropics community to be one of the best vendors. Here is my review:


Ordering: 8/10

Duckdose has a clean and neat ordering system. I attempted to pay with my credit card but it was blocked. The website says its because the payment processor is located overseas and as such may trigger my bank’s anti-fraud protection. I eventually paid via bitcoins, because who dosen’t enjoy a free 20% discount right?


Prices: 9.5/10

They sell Modalert, a great generic brand of modafinil at 85 cents a pill. They also feature a 15% returning discount coupon for recurring purchases. Plus if you pay with Bitcoins, theres an extra 20% OFF! This price is simply impressive. I think that any cheaper you would have to buy directly from the manufacturer.


Delivery: 8/10

Duckdose has a web tracker which can be used to get an update on the status of the package. My package arrived in about 9 days, which is very fast considering most of the time was spent clearing US customs. The web tracker is seems to receive updates a little slowly. My package had already physically reached me but it was only reported as Delivered a couple of hours later! I’ve written to them about it and duckdose claims its because India Post (the postal service they used to send from sometimes provide irregular updates)

It seems duckdose does not ship to some countries, according to their shipping page:

We are currently not able to ship directly to the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates due to tougher import controls.

If you live in one of those countries, you might want to read more about their shipping policy.


Product: 10/10

I used to have a prescription for Provigil, and I can honestly say I can’t tell the difference between duckdose’s modalert and brand name Provigil. The effects and taste were EXACTLY the same. Super clear-headedness feeling and full mental alacrity for a whole 16 hours.


Service: 10/10

They seem to have an email support system. I had some dosage specific questions and emailed the duckdose team. They very promptly responded and seemed to be exceptionally knowledgeable about the product, modafinil and nootropics in general. It’s a breath of fresh air compared to some of the pharmacies that only seem to be interested in dispensing pills without actual helpful information. I always believe its important to provide quality service, and for this reason they are my preferred vendor.


Closing Thoughts

I’ve always been a fan of biohacking and nootropics, and modafinil is one of those must-haves in your stack. Alot of people have written to me for recommendations on how to get Modafinil since pharmacies here want a RX before selling to you. Also, brand name Provigil costs a bomb and is not really affordable. If you’re looking for a safe and affordable source for modafinil, check out Duckdose now.
