Narcolepsy however cannot by cured completely using medication. The more undesirable symptoms of the disorder which include Cataplexy and EDS can be arrested. Stimulants In order to help people with narcolepsy stay awake and alert during the day, stimulants like Modafinil (Provigil) or methylphenidate (Ritalin) are used. The former is a relatively new medication used as a treatment for narcolepsy symptoms and is also less addictive than older stimulants. The latter has been around for a longer period and like other older stimulants, can sometimes produce side effects like palpitation and nervousness. Antidepressants Antidepressants are used as a treatment for narcolepsy symptoms like cataplexy or sleep paralysis, which are associated with REM sleep. These medications aim to suppress REM sleep and thereby alleviate the symptoms associated with it. They also help prevent hypnagogic hallucinations that people suffering from narcolepsy might have. Antidepressants administered for this condition include Imipramine (Tofranil) and Protriptyline (Vivactil). Fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem) and Sertraline (Zoloft) which are Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are also used as antidepressants. Sodium oxybate (Xyrem) is also another drug that helps in controlling Cataplexy. It also helps people suffering from narcolepsy get better sleep during the night. When the dosage is increased, it also reduces drowsiness during the daytime. The drug however is known to produce side effects like bed-wetting, sleepwalking and breathlessness, which has prompted the FDA to regulate the drug very strictly. Lifestyle adjustments are also a natural and effective form of treatment for narcolepsy. People can avoid heavy meals, alcohol or caffeine before going to bed. They also need to follow a strict bedtime schedule. They can have short 10 to 15 minute naps during the day to manage sleepiness. Maintaining a healthy diet, having good exercise for the body and living a healthy lifestyle would drastically reduce the symptoms of narcolepsy.
