Talk to Your Doctor About How to Manage Your Narcolepsy
Narcolepsy is a chronic condition that may affect your health in various ways, but you and your doctor can manage your condition.
Narcolepsy usually involves long-term treatment, so work with your doctor to address your symptoms and establish a plan for your overall health.
Look beyond your symptoms and consider the ways that narcolepsy may affect your overall health.
Choosing a treatment
Narcolepsy management should be individualized and tailored to your needs, goals, and burden of symptoms, and you should be an active participant in treatment decisions. The effect of narcolepsy on school, work, social life, safety, and relationships can help guide management.
Your management plan may need a combination of behavioral and medication strategies. The choice of medication may depend on a variety of factors related to the disease, the medication, and your lifestyle and expectations.
