Narcolepsy Resources

Left untreated, narcolepsy may be devastating both psychologically and socially. However, with proper management and treatment, people with narcolepsy usually lead meaningful and productive personal and professional lives.

If you are diagnosed with narcolepsy, consider joining a support group. By becoming a member of a support group, you'll get emotional support from people who are having similar problems. This will alleviate isolation and the feeling that you are the only one with this condition.

The Narcolepsy Network can help locate a support group in your area.
