[CQ-Contest] Drugs, Sleep and Contesting

I was thinking of writing a little piece on this for the Contest 
Compendium's section on sleep deprivation.  My memory no doubt has 
gaps, but I don't recall any serious discussion of the topic here.  I 
think that a couple of years ago there was a flurry of interest in a 
drug called Provigil that had been developed for use by people 
afflicted with narcolepsy, but that's all I recall.

Obviously, I'm not suggesting a discussion of illegal drug use (no 
greenies, please) but I wonder what the collective experience has 
been.  Have you tried anything other than the measures suggested in 
the Compendium article on Sleep strategies?  See 
for that.
