Abstract

Narcolepsy with cataplexy is an often underestimated disorder in both its primary and secondary forms. As with epilepsy, narcolepsy and cataplexy pose a high risk of injury to the patient. Yet, narcoleptics have historically received poorer care than epileptics with regard to non-pharmacological aids. This "White Paper" informs both professionals and patients about protective measures that are advisable.
