3 doctors agree

In brief: Almost Anything

A patient with narcolepsy can do anything they want.
There are a few reasonable restrictions: operating heavy maschines, professional driving, operating an airplane, surveillance jobs...

In brief: All kinds

Usually we can control daytime sleepiness and cataplexy with meds.
Most narcoleptics don't need disability. I wouldn't suggest truck driving etc. I have a doc with narcolepsy as a patient.
