Answer


Behavioral changes are usually recommended along with medications to help a person to manage narcolepsy symptoms. Combining the various treatments can improve alertness and help you control the effects of a narcoleptic episode.

This involves Scheduling your sleep periods, avoiding Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Avoid activities that would be dangerous if you had a sudden sleep attack.
