Latest post: Updates from SLEEP 2015

I returned from the big meeting of sleep professionals in (surprisingly) sunny Seattle a couple of weeks ago and I have some interesting news about a potential new treatment option for narcolepsy. It’s still in clinical trials, so not available to the public yet, but the results look promising. Fair warning, this post is going to have a lot of research in it, so if you don’t want to read through a lot of that, here’s a basic summary: Jazz Pharmaceuticals has a new medication they are testing called JZP-110 and results from clinical trials seem to indicate that it is really effective for Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, possibly better that Provigil/Nuvigil, and so far they aren’t seeing a lot of side effects. So good news and a potential new EDS treatment that will hopefully hit the market in the next couple of years.  read more
