Frequently Asked Questions

What are the sleep stages for people with narcolepsy?

People with narcolepsy do not necessarily experience sleep stages the way someone without narcolepsy does. While someone without the condition will first enter non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and eventually fall into rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, someone with narcolepsy falls immediately into REM sleep.
