What is Narcolepsy?

Narcolepsy is a serious neurological disorder of the sleep/wake cycle affecting about 1 in 2,000 people worldwide, including many children and young adults. Due to lack of awareness in medical communities and society at large, narcolepsy is extremely under-recognized and misunderstood. Patients often suffer symptoms for 3 to 15 years before receiving proper diagnosis and treatment. Learn more.
