Sometimes The inability to stay awake and alert during the day exhausted us too much. It feels uneasy. Do you know exactly what is that? Is it your habit or Any disorder! You must have to aware of it. In this busy life sometimes we just forgot about our mental health. But we must have to care about it.

Is it narcolepsy?

In people with narcolepsy, parts of Rapid Eye Moment (REM) rest encroach upon attentiveness, while alertness barges in on their rest. People with narcolepsy may rapidly go into REM rest without first encountering Non-Rapid Eye Moment (NREM) rest, both around evening time and during the day.

There are many symptoms of narcolepsy Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, Cataplexy, Sleep Disruption, Sleep Paralysis, hallucination. EDS is one of the first symptoms of narcolepsy.

Modafinil can be used to treat some of the symptoms of narcolepsy. Although there is no cure for narcolepsy, modafinil can help to control your symptoms. Modafinil promotes wakefulness by stimulating your brain to increase alertness and reduce excessive sleepiness during the day.

Modafinil can also make it harder to get a good sleep. Strikes me as a drug that should be used with a lot of care and consideration of the side effects.
