Please repost: Your post leaves out many important details: 1) Where, how & by whom was your narcolepsy diagnosed? Is it a firm diagnosis? 2) Is your “doc” a neurologist? Is he/she a specialist in sleep disorders? Based at an academic medical center? 3) Have any nonpharmacological measures been tried? 4) When nothing works, you need to be sure the diagnosis is correct. Have you sought a 2nd opinion?
