Hi all!  I'm Brandy, just found this group on the day I was diagnosed with narcolepsy.  Crazy!  Lol!  Anyway, like I said, I was just diagnosed today, and the doctor put me on Nuvigil to try.  I'm very much looking forward to feeling like a normal person again!

Welcome Brandy! You are our very first narcolepsy diagnosis!

Can I ask what really tipped you off that something was wrong?

The excessive daytime sleepiness.  It's been bothering me for years, and they tried everything--thyroid and iron levels, changing my antidepressants, calling it a viral infection.  Finally, it got to the point where I was dozing while at work and driving, so my PCP finally referred me to sleep med.  I will say I am glad it's finally figured out!

I'm really glad you got a diagnosis!! I hope the medication helps you! Let us know how it goes with the meds and any side effects. It may help (hopefully) future members
