Mary

Diagnosed with narcolepsy type 1 (narcolepsy with cataplexy).

34 years old | Office manager
Effective XYREM dosage: 9 g per night

It isn’t just…being tired in the mid-afternoon or being tired at the end of a long day. It’s being tired all the time.

Susan

Susan

Diagnosed with narcolepsy type 2 (narcolepsy without cataplexy).

59 years old | Speech therapist
Effective XYREM dosage: 6 g per night

I’ve always had this problem with falling asleep and sleepiness. But I generally just thought it was just because I was tired. Having 4 children, you’re always on the go so you’re always tired, so I attributed it to that.

42 years old | Public housing manager
Effective XYREM dosage: 7.5 g per night

When I am stressed or I become startled or frightened, I feel like I can’t get the right words to come out…I can think of the words in my head, but I just can’t get them to come out right.
