Narcolepsy drugs refer to pharmaceutical medicines used for the treatment of chronic sleep disorders. The disorder is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), cataplexy or sudden loss of muscle strength, sleep paralysis, hallucinations, fragmented sleep and insomnia.

Additional symptoms may include automatic behaviors without conscious awareness, blurred vision, double vision or droopy eyelids and disturbed mental functioning. Patients suffering from narcolepsy tend to sleep the same number of hours per day as normal individuals; however, sleep quality tends to be poorer.

Some of the commonly used narcolepsy drugs include central nervous system stimulants, sodium oxybate, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants. These drugs aid in improving wakefulness in adult patients and minimizing hallucinations, sleepiness and cataplexy.

The increasing prevalence of narcolepsy across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. This can be attributed to the sedentary lifestyles and hectic schedules of the working population, which, in turn, is significantly increasing the incidences of sleep-related disorders.

Moreover, rising health consciousness among the masses and the increasing awareness regarding the available treatment alternatives are providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, the widespread adoption of sodium oxybate for the treatment of narcolepsy in children is also contributing to the growth of the market.

Additionally, significant improvements in the diagnostic technologies for narcolepsy are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are also developing variants with long-term benefits and reduced side effects. Other factors, including the rising geriatric population, which is more susceptible to such ailments, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the field of neurology, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
