Narcolepsy in Children

Narcolepsy in Children and Napping

To gain greater control over their narcolepsy symptoms, many children take short, regularly scheduled naps at times when they tend to feel sleepiest. Children and adolescents with narcolepsy can be accommodated by their school through modifying class schedules and informing school personnel of special needs, including narcolepsy medication requirements during the school day.
 
Improving the quality of nighttime sleep can combat excessive daytime sleepiness and help relieve persistent feelings of fatigue.
