Medicines for Narcolepsy

There is no cure for narcolepsy, but narcolepsy medications can help. Some doctors provide drugs that act as stimulants and are standard treatments for narcolepsy.

Unfortunately, some of these medications have undesirable side effects including headache, irritability, nervousness, and gastrointestinal complaints. Nocturnal sleep may be impaired, which in turn can decrease sleep time.
