Is it same to take amphetamines for 18 years if you've been taking them for cataplexy?

Amphetamines in narc. I'm not sure if i understant the question. Unlike in adhd, amphetamines used for narcolepsy should not be taken intermittently or with holidays. These can be somewhat helpful for cataplexy but there are better anti-cataplectic medications that do not have the side effects. Amphetamines are used in narcolepsy primarily to combat the sleepiness with the added benefit of anticataplexy.
