Are There Natural Treatments For Narcolepsy?

Friday, 09 July 2010 11:16 AM

Question: My sister, who is almost 60, has recently been diagnosed with narcolepsy. Will any natural treatments help?

Dr. Hibberd's Answer:

Narcolepsy is characterized by attacks of excessive daytime sleepiness. We have no cure for this condition but have effective medications that can help control this otherwise disabling condition. Do not waste time, effort and money on useless ineffective "alternative" treatments. Request a referral to a neurologist for managing narcolepsy since there are other conditions commonly confused with it that require entirely different treatments.
