Abstract

Nicotine is best known for its troublesome role in tobacco addiction. However, in small doses, it is actually quite a potent and safe stimulant. Based on significant reports about a positive role of nicotine on narcoleptic seizures, we searched the medical literature for signals to better understand the opportunities and risks of medical nicotine use in patients with any severe form of narcolepsy.
