Support whom? Groups are for leaders and followers. Forget about it. The only thing I want from you guys is cheap Provigil. It costs $50 per pill and it is the best treatment for Narcolepsy. Indian imitations help but nothing is as good as Provigil. It's like drugs for terminal cancer, blackmail!

I'll e-mail you tomorrow.
I tried Provigil but had an allergic reaction to it. As far as Xyrem, I'm scared of the black box warning.

Yes, I was very scared to try Xyrem. But I handled to with care and study indepth first. But at the end of the day,
was desperate to try any thing.
Xyem turned out to be a wonder drug for me. It worked great with no side effects. It made a wonderful inprovement in me!
I am wide awake all day and have more functional hours a day with no narcolepit spells or any cataplexly. It was worth the risk!
Use it RESPONSIBALBY!
Sincerly,
Melissa P.

It sounds alot like me. You must have a sleep studing done to confirm narcolepsy in any form. With confirmed diagnosis you only them quaifiy for the medications you need.
Like Nuvigil or maybe even Xyrem. You may contact me directly at mpaige514@yahoo.com. Hope to here from you soon. I've been in your shoes. Melissa

I haven't been technically diagno sed with narcolepsy yet. I'm scheduled to do the overnight study but with the symptoms that I've explained to my neurologist she said it. sounded like narcolepsy. I've been on adderrall xr 30 in the am and 25 in the pm for almost 8 years. I have a mild form of it. I dont fall asleep right were I'm at. I'm sleepy and tired all the time. I feel. Foggy some days more thanb others were I can't think clearly and my concentration is bad. Some days I yawn a lot. I get the sleep paralysis depends it could be from 3 t
o 7 times a month. Sometimes if I nap in the weekend I get it. I dont drive
And its very hard to try to explain this thing I cannot control. Its. Very frustrating because even my partner and family don't believe m e. I sometimes feel down because of this. I wil be emailing you tomorrow. :-)
How bad do u have it?
