You might want to bring it to the attention of your doctor. Expect resistance or disbelief, so come armed with lots of information printed out for him. I had too many doctors put off my questions because they didn't understand narcolepsy, thinking of it in its classic "fall asleep instantly" form. But that's a fairly rare reaction.

An intelligent, open-minded doctor should be able to diagnose it without going through all the trouble of sleep lab tests (which can take a long time to get booked for & all other meds need to be stopped before it can be done). If enough symptoms are there, a doctor can make the diagnosis on symptoms alone.
