What research is being done? ... Related NINDS Publications and Information What is Narcolepsy? Is there any treatment? There is presently no cure for narcolepsy; however, the symptoms can be controlled with behavioral and medical therapy. The excessive daytime sleepiness may be treated with stimulant drugs or with the drug modafinil (Provigil), which was approved by the FDA for this use in 1999. Cataplexy and other REM-sleep symptoms may be treated with antidepressant medications. At best, medications will reduce the symptoms, but will not alleviate them entirely. Also, many currently available medications have side effects. Basic lifestyle adjustments such as regulating sleep schedules, scheduled daytime naps and avoiding "over-stimulating" situations may also help to reduce the intrusion of symptoms into daytime activities. What is the prognosis?

Narcolepsy is a serious medical disorder and a key to understanding other sleep disorders Narcolepsy is a disabling illness affecting more than 1 in 2,000 Americans. Most individuals with the disorder are not diagnosed and are thus not treated. The disease is principally characterized by a permanent and overwhelming feeling of sleepiness and fatigue. Other symptoms involve abnormalities of dreaming sleep, such as dream-like hallucinations and finding oneself physically weak or paralyzed for a few seconds (see Symptoms). The Stanford University Sleep Clinic was the first medical clinic ever established to specialize in sleep disorders. It was founded in the early 1970s by Dr. William Dement to diagnose and treat narcoleptic patients. The Stanford Center for Narcolepsy was established in the 1980s and is now directed by Drs. Emmanuel Mignot and Seiji Nishino. The Center for Narcolepsy is part of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and has published more than 100 articles on narcolepsy. It is the world leader in narcolepsy research. Several hundred patients with the disorder are currently treated at the Center or participate in various research protocols. Other research protocols are conducted in animals models of narcolespy. The Stanford Center for narcolepsy was the first to report that narcolepsy-cataplexy is caused by hypocretin (orexin) abnormalities in both animal models and humans (see Research). We are always looking for volunteers in our narcolepsy research studies.

For example, sleep apnea has been documented in 10% of adult men. Complications of untreated sleep apnea include heart attack, heart failure, stroke, incapacitating sleepiness and sleep attacks with motor vehicle crashes. The impact of sleep apnea narcolepsy hypersomnia insomnia and other sleep disorders on industry and transportation is similarly dramatic. Sleep deprivation and sleepiness due to shift work escalate the risks. Annual U.S. losses from workplace sleepiness have been estimated at 189.5 billion dollars.

    • No one drug successfully treats all the manifestations of narcolepsy. The excessive daytime sleepiness/sleep attacks are often treated with stimulant medications.... Despite the array of drugs that have been used in the treatment of narcolepsy, success in symptom control is limited, and side effects may be prevalent. Patients often do not perceive a major relief of symptoms. In the present study, symptom prevalence was reported to continue in the majority of individuals despite their medications. [Because they insist on treating you like it is your fault (psychiatric), and giving drugs like Ritalin that do not function effectively even when they know good DAMN WELL what drugs are effective] Therapy is long term and usually lifelong, so that narcolepsy is categorized as a chronic illness. Because narcolepsy is an incurable illness with variable treatment results and symptoms that interfere with daily functioning, its impact on quality of life is significant.

    "Imagine falling asleep while at the wheel waiting for a green light, or at work, as happened to my patients. Excessive daytime sleepiness is often the most disabling symptom of narcolepsy and the most difficult to treat. The goal of my research is to find better ways to control this symptom.." Ann E. Rogers PhD, RN Associate Professor,
    School of Nursing
    University of Pennsylvania Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and sleep attacks. Other symptoms include brief episodes of muscle weakness or paralysis, dream-like images when falling asleep and disturbed sleep at night. Narcolepsy effects equal numbers of men and women and occurs in all racial groups. This sleep disorder usually develops during the late teens or early twenties and continues throughout the individual's life. Early diagnosis and appropriate medical care are critical for reducing the adverse effects of this disorder. With adequate medication and support from their teachers, employers and families, most patients can enjoy a near-normal lifestyle. Unfortunately, many patients remain undiagnosed and undertreated. The Narcolepsy Research Project consists of a group of clinicians and investigators dedicated to improving the care of narcoleptic patients. We are particularly interested in learning more about the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness; what treatments are effective and what treatments are not effective for controlling this symptom.
