Treating the Full Spectrum of Narcolepsy: Improving Nighttime Symptoms to Enhance Daytime Quality of Life -Patients with narcolepsy often face a long journey on their path to diagnosis and effective treatment. Combating the negative impact of narcolepsy on the lives of those affected requires that both the general public and the medical community increase their awareness of the symptoms of narcolepsy, in particular, the most common presenting symptoms: cataplexy and excessive daytime sleepiness.
Improved recognition of both symptoms and objective measures of narcolepsy can shorten the burdensome lag from symptom onset to effective treatment and improve the lives of people with this life-altering central disorder of hypersomnolence. Although a cure for narcolepsy is not available, effective treatments are currently available and more are on the horizon.
Define evidence-based treatment for all patients with narcolepsy that can be used within one month of diagnosing the narcolepsy.
