Sleep specialists normally treat narcolepsy with a combination of behavioral changes (primarily scheduling nocturnal sleep and naps) and medications, tailoring the treatment based on the potential cause(s) of the condition, individual symptoms and response to treatments. Changes in work or lifestyle can be helpful. The Narcolepsy Network provides patient education and support.
Treatment duration varies and could require frequent adjustment of medications to get the best response, though complete control of symptoms is rarely achievable. Medications used to treat narcolepsy include antidepressants, stimulants, ADHD medications and sodium oxybate.
As an internationally renowned sleep center we are recognized for outstanding patient care with specialists in sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, parasomnias, restless legs syndrome, and other sleep disorders.
