A concentrated drug administered via subcutaneous ampoules, it is potent a stimulant that allows one to be awake for thirty six hours without any side-effects. However, it is highly addictive and withdrawal effects include restlessness, insomnia, insensitivity to pain, visual and aural hallucinations and episodes of psychosis in some users.
Receiving a “restricted” status from the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), it is commercially available in small dosages in the form of cigarettes, diminishing its effect on users. Use and production of pure samples are expensive and illegal without the proper licences.
The black market for the drug is rampant in colleges and night shift workers, especially with the medical sector, which recently started operating after traditional work hours.
Another drug, Orexin-A has similar benefits and is non-addictive, but is under the control of the US government for the use of their military forces.
