Treatment

Narcolepsy has no cure, but medications and lifestyle modifications can help you manage the symptoms. Medications include:

  • Stimulants. Drugs that stimulate the central nervous system are the primary treatment to help people with narcolepsy stay awake during the day. These include methylphenidate (Ritalin) and various amphetamines. Although these medications are effective, they may cause side effects, such as nervousness and heart palpitations, and can be addictive.

  • Modafinil. The drug modafinil (Provigil) may help people with narcolepsy stay awake. Modafinil isn't as addictive and doesn't produce the highs and lows often associated with stimulants.

  • Antidepressants. Doctors often prescribe antidepressant medications, which suppress REM sleep, to help alleviate the symptoms of cataplexy, hypnagogic hallucinations and sleep paralysis. These medications include the tricyclic antidepressants protriptyline (Vivactil) and imipramine (Tofranil).

  • Sodium oxybate (Xyrem). This medication controls cataplexy, sleep paralysis and hallucinations in people with narcolepsy. Sodium oxybate helps to improve nighttime sleep, a lack of which may contribute to excessive daytime sleepiness.

If you have other health problems, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, ask your doctor how medications for existing conditions may interact with those taken for narcolepsy.

Certain over-the-counter drugs, such as allergy and cold medications, can cause drowsiness as a side effect. If you have narcolepsy, your doctor will likely recommend that you avoid taking these medications.

Medications to treat narcolepsy can help reduce your signs and symptoms, but they can't alleviate them entirely. Lifestyle changes also are an integral part of treating narcolepsy.
