Effects of Modafinil?

As someone who suffers from chronic insomnia and often has to get things done during the day without much or any sleep at all, I would like to know from those experienced what the effects are of Modafinil and other wakefulness drugs before trying them myself. I guess my questions are mainly: 1. How does one feel after taking Modafinil? 2. If I go without sleep for a night, will Modafinil give me an energy boost for the subsequent day? 3. Does Modafinil have similar effects as energy drinks or other stimulants in that they increase your heart rate and can make you feel nervous? I have tried drugs like cocaine and amphetamine and although they do the job and keep you awake without sleepiness I don't like them at all because of how they alter your mood and cause depression when the effects wear off.
