    An important part of managing narcolepsy and reducing the impact of tiredness is to ensure that general health is as good as possible. This means that keeping fit, maintaining a healthy weight and eating a balanced diet are all important, as well as making sure any other medical conditions are well controlled. Planning naps through the day is also an important strategy to reduce symptoms of tiredness and cataplexy in narcolepsy. If these measures are not sufficient to control symptoms, and unfortunately they often aren't, medications can be used to reduce sleepiness and cataplexy. 
     
    There have not been any clinical trials showing evidence for homeopathy in the management of narcolepsy, so it is generally not recommended. For more information on Narcolepsy click here.
