ABSTRACT
The four classic symptoms of narcolepsy consist of excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, sleep paralysis and hypnagogic/ hypnopompic hallucinations. Tow of them is related directly to night sleep. And also a significant number of patients have trouble sleeping except sleep paralysis and hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations at night. The aim of this review is to increase awareness on this issue, thereby enhancing the care of narcoleptic patients by more specific approaches to their disturbed night sleep.
